Jury duty in Jamaica and desperate

Mississippi Mike Jan 2, 2007 11:27 PM

I'm stuck with jury duty on a longish trial and am hoping for some tasty food to redeem these wasted days. The pickings looked slim walking about today. Any hounds care to help me out?

    Go to EL COYOTE - a little Mexican treasure.
    Question - which courthouse?
    If the Sutphin courts, walk half a block to the F subway stop - EL COYOTE is the last stop on the F train. EXIT towards to the southside, the place is on the northside of HILLSIDE.
    Great lunch menu,dirt cheap with fresh salsa and chips free.
    Bring some friends and have guacamole - better than Rosa M and half the price - quite an event with expert presentation.
    Friendly Mexican service for us gringos.
    BTW,on the lunch menu,v. boring I often order ITEM 21 Mexican style chicken..only 5.75$ - just delicious.

      there's a decent Trinidadian roti shop a few blocks down, right by the LIRR station. Even though it's cold out, be sure and try the Mauby drink.

        Thanks. I think I found the place you're talking about (on Sutphin a block up from LIRR?) and its closed. An incense peddler directed me to another spot around the corner where I got a very respectable stewed oxtail dish. There was a promising looking curried goat on the menu that wasn't ready when I got there. Maybe I'll come back for it after I try El Coyote.
