Another Back-A-Yard rave (Menlo park Caribbean)

This Menlo Park restaurant is a gem and a must for anyone looking for Caribbean food. After my first visit a week ago, I couldn't stop thinking about the jerked chicken.

I returned and got the Jerked Chicken dinner ($8.95) with a side order of the oxtail ($5 extra). The dinner portions are substantial but I like o The chicken was redolent with island spices and had just enough heat to make your mouth tingle but not burn. The oxtail was dark, rich, flavorful, and falling off the bone. For a side order I got a total of 5 pieces (3 large, 1 medium, 1 small). The dinners are served with a side of rice and beans, fried sweet plantains, and salad. Last time, I had the Coco bread and the meat patty which was all very good. I need to try the Ackee with Saltfish next time but I don't know if I can give up that addictive jerked chicken.
