The other two dishes at the table were also served with those appreciated fried plantains, a scoop of rice and beans, and a shredded cabbage and carrots combination. Both the curried goat and the oxtail (each $12/$15.50) were prepared similarly, slowly cooked with mild spices and butter beans, making them taste similar, despite one being a little curried — but they were tastily similar.
If you're on a tight budget, this is the place to come at any time, but there are times when inexpensive becomes downright cheap: on "Lucky Wednesdays" all meals are $9, and on "College Thursdays," a second entrée is half-price with an ID.
Desserts? They didn't have the peanut drops or coconut drops on the menu ($1.50), which are heated with sugar and cooled, like peanut brittle, so I couldn't satisfy my curiosity about them. They were also out of rum cake and carrot cake, but the wedge of sweet potato cake ($3) was enjoyable, dense and flavorful, full of grated coconut. Closing my eyes, I could almost hear reggae in the background.
