new jerk chicken Jamaican resto on 2086 7th Ave. (124th) in Harlem

  • 5

Treme's restaurant closed last December and left many without the home-style jerk chicken that no food chain can reproduce. So, here is a new restaurant that has a take-out counter. I've tried their jerk chicken and it is superb. Their oxtail looked excellent too. Does anybody know how to get soursop icecream in Manhattan?? Treme's sometimes had it when they weren't sold out. Soursop is best icecream I've ever had.

    1. a northern manhattan review!! this is a great tip, thanks! (and thanks to squid for providing the name.)

      re: soursop -- aka custard apple or cherimoya -- ice cream, i love that stuff, too. just about every ice cream shop in singapore has it. i haven't seen it in nyc, but when i googled, i came across a yelp reviewer who mentioned having it at mancora in 2006. it's an old lead, but it could still be worth calling the restaurant and seeing (1) whether they still have it and (2) where they source(d) it from.

        oo, I want to try that soursop ice cream...this is a bit unrelated but Sweetsop fruit is unbelievably delish and exotic as well and I stumble upon it like once a year at a sidewalk fruit stand in Chinatown....but I wish I knew exactly when to look for it.

        I'm def gonna try out this West Indian spot....and report back.

          Are you sure that soursop is the same as custard apple? I thought they were different. I haven't had soursop ice cream, but I have had guanĂ¡bana juice (which I think is from the soursop plant), and it tastes nothing like custard apple I have had in India.

            I think you might be right. Soursop, cherimoya, sweetsop and custard apple are all part of the custard apple (Annonaceae) family, but are distinct fruits (species?), according to this link:

            http://waynesword.palomar.edu/jackfr1...

            From that link: "Soursop (Annona muricata), another large, spiny, cauliflorous fruit that may weigh up to 6 pounds (3 kg). Unlike the jackfruit, it belongs to the custard apple family (Annonaceae) and is native to tropical America. This interesting plant family also includes the cherimoya (A. cherimola), custard apple (A. reticulata) and sugar apple or pinha (A. squamosa). Soft, ripe soursops are mostly used for ice creams and sherbets."
