Jamaican Dutchy Street Food Cart – 51st & 7th Ave Midtown NY
I wrote about the Jamaican Dutchy Street food cart last month see: Jamaican Dutchy Street Food Cart – 51st & 7th Ave Midtown NY. Seems like the Jamaican Street Food Cart got their operation a little more streamlined. They have 2 windows – one to order and one for pickup/payment. I went recently and got a small order (they load it on so unless you are dying of hunger a small order should do) of the Jerked Chicken and now I know the reason why the line is packed everyday – this is incredible jerked chicken. The skin is perfectly spiced and charred with some intense smoky flavors. I went with a Jamaican co worker of mine and she says on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being authentic Jamaican, this was a close 10 and the best without actually going all the way to Jamaica. From the one time I’ve been to Jamaica I also agree that it’s right on. My advice – go early (10:30/11am) or late 1:30PM to avoid the rush.
