Subject: The best meal I've ever had in Brooklyn
I ate at the Island or whatever it is called, the Jamaican restaurant over in Prospect Heights. Its the best food I've ever eaten in Brooklyn. Possibly the best meal I've ever eaten in New York. I had jerk chicken with rice n beans and fried plantains. The rice n beans was delicious. The jerk chicken was perfect.
My only tiny gripe was that the chef interrogated me about my dreadlocks (I have shoulder length locs all piled on top of my head). He asked me why I was wearing dreadlocks if I am not a Rasta. I explained that I'm from Africa and that AFricans have worn dreadlocks since way before Jamaica was even populated by any black people. Anyway, I like the chef (who himself is a baldhead) because he can really cook!
You should definitely check this place out! YOu can eat in or take out. If you get the Jerk Chicken, get the large portion. Enjoy!
