So after a very emotional and horrid week here in the ward I thought it was time to bring up a positive experience or more so, a negative experience turned positive.

A number of a months ago I had visited LJ's restaurant on the corner of Milton and Thurston because I love Caribbean food. At that time I had a less than desirable experience and I had mentioned that in an other thread when a shooting had occurred in their neck of the woods a few weeks back.

Having stewed about that for a bit I said to myself, that out of fairness I should go back and try it again in the hopes that it was an off experience. So, I am here to say that I am glad I did.

The food is Jamaican and it is amazing. I had the Stewed Chicken and my partner Shawn had the Jerk Chicken while both of us had rice and beans with fried plantain and macaroni and cheese. Firstly, the portions are huge! I ordered two small dinners and I can tell you that I could easily have eaten half and saved the rest for the next day but my mouth would have none of that kind of talk - I ate it all. There were was no shortage of flavor, no holding back on seasoning, spice and my old friend salt.

So I stand with my belly full, my mouth happy and my tail betwixt my legs and heartily suggest people who love Caribbean food might want to stop in.

I will agree, it was great! I am not one who really likes chicken on the bone, but my Jerk Chicken was fantastic. I don't know how long it had been cooking, but it fell right off the bone, and the spicy jerk flavor was all the way through the meat. So it had been slow cooking for hours.

I will be the first to say that I can go off about everything that's "wrong" or "bad" about the 19th Ward. So I want to be the first to say give LJ's a try, or another try. The food is well worth a drive down our favorite boulevard, Thurston Road! OH and I guess I will have to be the second person to recommend them, since Anthony did already ;)
Did you eat there or take it out?
Hey Sheri; I did take out because it was a on the fly decision being out in the yard at the time.
