Tastee Jamaican Restaurant
522 River St, Mattapan
Yesterday afternoon on my way to my parents' house from the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company's production of Romeo & Juliet at the Elma Lewis Playhouse in Roxbury, I stopped into this Mattapan Square restaurant to pick up some authentic Jamaican food. The young lady behind the counter was attentive and polite. I ordered a medium stew chicken, a ginger beer, and bought a small bun to go. They didn't have any Jamaican cheese blocks to go with the bun, just individual slices and a big tin.
The stew chicken was EXCELLENT. The meat fell off the bone, good quality pieces, gravy, plenty of rice & peas, and corn on the cob. I was moaning (in a good way) and commenting to myself through the whole meal.
The bun is great of course. I've been using butter instead of cheese.
