I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2015…

Jerk Chicken at THE ISLANDS

I’ve been wanting to go to The Islands restaurant for their homecooked Jamaican food since pretty early in my New York foodie career. I finally made it out here for lunch one day when they were not seating people but doing take-out orders. That didn’t bother me because I still got to try their legendary jerk chicken, which features large cuts of bone-in chicken rubbed with a smoky/spicy jerk seasoning and sauce. The chicken falls right off the bone and will warm you up on a cold day or fill you up any time of the year. Price: $8/$10
