Treme's Jamaican in Harlem--surprisingly good steam table

Treme's Jamaican at 2086 7th Ave. (124th) in Harlem turned out to be a surprisingly good steam table joint. It's pretty small, and typical of older Central Harlem's low-key vibe. There's a menu of jerk and curry options, another menu of fish, and a rotating daily menu. This being my first time there, I was a touch unadventurous, and went for the jerk chicken, with rice and beans, cabbage, and plantains. The chicken was rich and savory, and fell off the bone nicely. The rice and beans were rich and spectacular. Good enough to just have on their own. And the cabbage was a big hit, too. I like mine a bit on the soft side, and I suppose a steam table is not too bad for that. The plaintains were nothing to rave about. I'd love to know if anyone else has been there, and what they've had.
