Fisherman’s Cove Jerk Chicken Flatbush Brooklyn
2025 Church Ave (@ E 21st)
Here’s my latest Jamaican Jerked Chicken update from my neighborhood (moving again in a few days). I’ve been scouting the area over the past few weeks and this place seems to be a hot spot for the locals as there is always a line outside. I wasn’t so sure if the line was always out the door because of the food or if it was because the place only has room for 2 people to stand inside and that a line would naturally form. To confirm, I checked it out last night and I would say the reason is more of the latter. The Jerk Chicken is great. One indication that I’m quickly learning is that from all the Jerk chicken joints I’ve been to in the area it seems that the key is to have the chicken actively cooking on a grill for the best taste. I’ve been to some places where the chicken is stored in stainless steel containers within buffet steam trays but countrary to what you would think the chicken is dry. The chicken on the grill surprisingly doesn’t dry out for whatever reason – or maybe because of the high turnover you’re always getting the freshly grilled and crispy chicken. At the Fisherman’s Cove, like Hammond’s, the chicken is actively on the grill and here they cover the chicken with aluminum baking trays to maybe lock in the moisture? Fisherman’s Cove also has the full Jamaican menu of Ox Tail, Fish, Curry Goat, etc. For just $7 I ordered the medium dish and got a massive plate of Jerked Chicken, a side of cabbage salad and a mound of rice. Check it out!
