I just had jerk chicken from the Jamaican Dutchy cart at 51st and 7th yesterday. $9.50 for jerk chicken, fried plantain, carrots and cabbage, red beans and rice, and a ginger beer, its certainly not cheap eats, but it was amazingly good. This black guy did a double take when he passed me in the park and asked where to get some.

They also serve oxtails, goat, cow feet (?), and other chicken. Also patties if you're interested in something small.

Only complaint: they skimped on the napkins (only one? for chicken with bones? really?) and so for a I while I had to walk around worried that I had jerk chicken smeared all over my face like a crazy person.

its seems like that dude is there all day and maybe a little into the dinner hours - probably whenever he runs out. there is usually a fucking massive line as well around 1 for lunch, but so worth it.

I got there a 12:30, and there were only 2 or 3 people with me, and it went pretty quickly. So maybe it's calmed down, or maybe it gets really busy after that???

Anyway, on the paper menu, I think I remember seeing a breakfast section that I was pretty surprised at. So he may also be out there pretty early too.

I'm relatively new to the area, so here's a question: Better first time hotdog and papaya, Gray's or Papaya King?

i've only fucked w/ grey's, every time i'm either high or drunk. haven't been in a few years when the "recession special" was $2.50. now that we're in a legit recession that shit is prolly like $5 - if so, not worth it.
