Allan Vernon is one of the city's foremost jerk theorists, and his version of jerk sauce is readily available in specialty stores. While the sauce is traditionally a thin bonnet-pepper vinaigrette, his is loaded up with all sorts of ingredients to give it the consistency of ketchup, and a flavor that owes a little too much to Worcestershire. That said, his jerk pork is fabulous, meaty, and tender. The chicken is more succulent than most, leaving a faint burn in your mouth. And having the counter gal dump Vernon's dark concoction over everything is optional. Look for daily specials like brown stew chicken and tripe and beans.
