Awesome Jerk!!!!!

Evan Tasch | Dec 23, 2005 09:33 AM

Hey Hounds...

I've got to give props to Joyce's, a West Indian spot in Brooklyn just east of Utica Ave. on Avenue D. I don't think there has been a mention of them in various threads on jerk and Jamaican in general, but I have found their food (especially the jerk chicken) to be of superior quality. The jerk is well charred, extremely flavorful and hits just the right degree of heat (with some sliced habeneros lurking about for those who want an espresso shot of spice!!! As an added bonus, the service is always extremely efficient and polite. I've also had the oxtail, curried goat, chicken soup, and gungo and peas, all delish. If anyone on this board has been to Joyce's , I'd love to know what you think. If not, I'd say it's worth a special trip if you've got a hankering for some amazing jerk chicken
