Are There Any Decent Caribbean Places in No. Jersey?
Jamaican? Trini? there are a few in teaneck/englewood and i see one in bergenfield. any good? i ate at a jamaican place on central av in hackensack a few years ago. not bad and i don't know if it still exists. i see online a place called teela's in bloomfield/montclair. anyone know? i'd love a good roti without having to go to nostrand ave or liberty ave. thanks.
thanks for the heads up. sounds good. i tried boomerang's in hackensack yesterday. $5 mondays. jerk chicken, rice & peas and cabbage. pretty tasty and a great price. not real jerk but i didn't expect it. grilled chicken, dark meat on the bone, the way i like it, with a jerk sauce. a little spicy and a little sweet. rice was a little dry but good. nice coconut flavor. i tried to order collards but they had no greens yesterday. was going to try the oxtail next but i think i'll try this place instead. i wish they had a menu online.

Some of the information is old -- and I know there are some restaurants on the site that have closed -- but it is good for information.
I've tried the Curry chicken from A Taste of the Caribbean in West Orange at a local Taste of the World event. It was good. I haven't had the opportunity to dine there yet. I am planning on getting food from there to take home on of these days though.
