The eponymous jerk chicken is excellent - cooked over charcoal and thickly annealed with jerk spices, which turn the crisp-skinned poultry gobbets a deep deep shade of red, redolent of allspice and herbs. Smother it in scotch bonnet jerk sauce for added (and nearly mind-boggling) heat. But this "jerk yard" is so much more, featuring down-home standards like saltfish and ackee, and the rarely seen tripe with butter beans, featuring curried swatches of cow stomach in a curried gravy with a diverse roster of vegetables. The same broad white beans are available stewed with cow foot, served over fragrant, coconut-infused rice and peas. Finally, the place does a mean version of fried chicken, coated with what might be crushed Wheaties.
