Blue Mountain Cafe - Closed

1377 E. New York Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11212 | Brooklyn | 718-342-5850

Location Description:

This establishment is an eats beacon in a downtown Brownsville increasingly dominated by fast-food chains, and one of the rare local Jamaican places to produce jerk pork. The handsome nuggets are grilled over charcoal and doused with a distinctive homemade sauce. Though the regulars seem to prefer the oxtails, we scarfed an excellent goat curry, damper and hotter than most, served over rice and peas. Also admirable was the copious side of mac-and-cheese, with lots more cheese than you'd expect.
