Anybody know where I can find a good plate of Jamaican jerk chicken (or pork) in the East Bay? I'm addicted to that green, smokey, herby sauce -- like chimichurri but smokier and with a super spicy kick. Scotch bonnet -- I just discovered it's called.

      Jerk's flavor comes from a combination of spices but usually the main ones are scotch bonnet chiles and allspice.

        Miss Ollie's might be open next month. Dunno about jerk but her pepper sauce is the best.

        Kingston 11 serves jerk chicken at Guerilla Cafe Friday and Saturday nights. Haven't tried it yet.
