Good Caribbean on South St Philadelphia: Blue Bananas Cafe

We ate here last night and the food was very good -- cuisine reminded me of the Jamaican Jerk Hut. The menu is not as extensive as the Jerk Hut, but the curried goat was delicious. My partner had the brown stew chicken and said it was very good as well. Plates came with rice (or rice and peas) mixed vegetables and fried plaintain. The only disappointment was that "food" was not available that evening (it's a starchy Jamaican specialty that a friend had told me about). The place is not amazing, but it's cute, comfortable and we were met with pleasant and efficient service. The prices are reasonable. and they have a full liquor selection including specialty "tropical" drinks. Open until midnight on Friday and Saturday, so if you're looking for decent hearty fare on South Street (especially after 10 pm) then I would definitely recommend Blue Bananas.
