Best Juicy Jerk - 2002
CARIBBEAN TASTE INC.
Jerk awards have skipped back and forth between Brooklyn and the Bronx the last few years, and I'm happy to report that our northernmost borough has reclaimed the title. Located on a busy Edenwald corner that throngs with rambunctious school kids around three o'clock, CARIBBEAN TASTE INC. is a carryout that dispenses the usual range of Jamaican specialties, and an exemplary version of jerk chicken, cooked over charcoal, of course, and flaunting a slightly sweet sauce that won't leave you screaming from the spiciness. Too bad.
