Rusty's Happy Choice - Calaloo&Banana?

Has anyone been to this place, "Rusty's Happy Choice" on 125th between Amsterdam and Morningside Ave?

I'm not familiar with "West Indian" cuisine. Their breakfast menu is fascinating: Ackee & Saltfish, Liver & Banana, Calaloo & Banana, Cornmeal Porridge, Amni Corn, Serosi Tea. Soups include: Cow Foot, Mannish Water, and Ital Stew. They also have for drinks, Irish Moss, Tiger Bone, Sorrel Drink, Carrot Juice, and Roots-Man Tonic..

I ordered Okra & Saltfish and Jerk Chicken. Both were tasty, then I don't have much to compare to. I though Jerk Chicken is supposed to be spicy, but this wasn't as spicy as the rice and bean that came with.

I Would appreciate explanations on what Mannish Water, Ital Stew, and Calaloo are, and perhaps a way to get to know this cuisine better.
