Jamaican-cuisine places to eat are couple and far in between in these components (Rocky’s Jamaica Dawn in Maryville is a single of that tiny selection that occur to head). So when I master about these kinds of a exceptional treasure, I’m swift to jump all over it. That is why I quickly-tracked Dulcie’s Café to the major of my listing. The Grub Wife or husband and I dropped in very last week for evening meal.

When I arrived, I understood I’d been to that address right before. I experienced reviewed a soul-food items restaurant at that place back in 2017. The location actually seems to be as if it might have originally been a Mexican-food items eatery, dependent on the predominance of alcove-design and style booths and arched doorways. The present house owners have spiffed it up nicely, producing a vibrant and welcoming space that even offers pillows in the booths — a welcome addition to individuals of us who recognize the value of excellent lumbar assistance.

The menu is centered in its scope. 5 of the main dishes are pictured on the menu: oxtail, curry hen, jerk chicken, crimson snapper and brown stew chicken. The Husband or wife requested the jerk chicken. All foods arrive with two sides, and the spouse selected rice and peas and fried sweet plantains.

Other entrees include things like salmon, curry goat, beef patty, curry shrimp, stew beef and coco bread, which is a coconut-milk-sweetened bread that is typically break up and stuffed with a patty to form a sandwich.

Obtaining in no way attempted goat in advance of, I was as well curious not to buy Dulcie’s curry model. I was advised that it was comparable to lamb, which was convincing ample for me, not to mention the actuality that I like practically any curry dish. I chose the potato salad and the Rasta Pasta (I was warned that it was spicy) as my sides. Other sides include things like cabbage, white rice and pumpkin rice.
