Hello Chow Folks! Would love to hear your thoughts on authentic Jamaican food in Brooklyn...thanks in advance!

  1. Upscale restaurant, dinner only

    In addition to non dairy Ice Cream they serve veggie carribean (Ital) meals. No tables or restroom, counter service only.
    Scoops Ice Cream Parlor 624 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn, NY

    Beyond that there are a number of Roti and jerk places, many posts already.

    1. I had some ridiculous beef patties at immaculee

      not sure if that's jamaican. west indies stuff though.

      you can find a bunch of great caribbean at this site.

      1. Here's some recent recs for good jerk and more::

        Peppa's Jerk Chicken
        738 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11226

          Nobody does Jerk better than Peppa's...and their escovitch fish is awesome too.

        2. Stir it Up on Atlantic Avenue

          Islands in Prospect heights

          1. For the best jerk I've found in Brooklyn it's McKenzie's on Utica in Crown Heights (especially hot off the outside grill on weekends; can be brusque but well worth it) and Joyce's on Avenue D east of Utica (a solid second). Of the 8 or 10 I've tried these two stand out.
