Juiciest Jerk Pork (2008)
OK, so it's not done on a barbecue made from an oil drum and charcoal isn't involved. Still, contrary to expectation, PEARLY'S jerk pork is the best in Brooklyn. The pieces are large and succulent, rimmed with fat, and slightly gritty with generous quantities of jerk spices. And this tiny café is like a Jamaican clubhouse, with friendly guys sitting around slurping Red Stripes, each willing to give his own testimony to the excellence of Pearly's cooking.
