Yah Mon Tasty Jerk Chicken - Dallas (Oak Cliff)

Has anyone tried this place? I tried a Google seach for it and it looks like it is in a residential neighborhood, again then so is Don Panza. Just wanted to see if anyone has tried it and how it might compare with Elaine's Kitchen.

  1. The yardbird is decent, but they char-grill it. I think it would be better if they had a way to actually cook it over a wood fire -- maybe they dweet in warmer weather outside? Dunno. The place is VERY small, so everyting's to go. The owner and his wife are worth the visit alone -- both from JA. Chat 'bout music with them and you'll lose track of time. I want to go back there again soon -- it was a blast! (and tasty, too!) Bless up.. Yah mon... cool, seen?

    1. I live in Oak Cliff, and unfortunately, Yah Mon has been closed for quite awhile now. I don't know of anywhere else to get Carribean Jerk. Anyone?

        Elaine's Kitchen on MLK Blvd. Just whacking good jerk. And the brown down oxtails are a contender.

          Carribean Pan - Dallas (Webb Chapel & Forest)
          Carribean Grill - Dallas (Webb Chapel & Forest)
          Elaine's Kitchen - Dallas (MLK Blvd and Hwy 175 - next to the old Forest Theater)
          A Taste of the Islands - Plano (Spring Creek & Alma)
          Carribean Eats - Garland (Centerville btwn Miller & Broadway)
          Texas Carribean Foods - Dallas (close to South Side on Lamar)

          These are all the places that would probably all sell Jerk Chicken. I really like the version at Elaine's and Carribean Pan. DiRotiman said A Taste of the Islands is real good, owned by a woman from Guyana (so pretty close to the cuisine of Trinidad).
