Canary in the mine dishes.

Paprikaboy | Jul 6, 2013 01:49 PM

If a new Jamaican place opens, or one I haven't been to before, I'll always have the jerk chicken, rice and peas, even though it's not my favourite dish- much prefer oxtail or curried goat. I use it as a barometer. If they can't get this right then I don't see the point of ordering other dishes. Not sure why I don't do this with other cuisines?
Anyone else have dishes they use as a "tester"?
