Finally - actually spicy jerk chicken at Negrille, Asbury Park

joonjoon | May 5, 2014 11:42 AM

I've waxed poetic about my love for jerk chicken on this board on multiple occasions. My great frustration with Asbury Park was that no one was serving up jerk chicken that I really cared for despite all the Jamaican places here.

Well FINALLY - we have a place that's bringing the heat. Negrille is on Memorial - where the old Castaways was, and it's one of the hottest jerk chickens I've ever had. You can see huge chunks of scotch bonnets all over it.

It's still not as good as the stuff in Jamaica or Brooklyn, but finally I've found a jerk chicken in our area that I'd return for. I know there're some serious spice lovers here so I thought I'd provide this 'hound PSA. :)
