I ate a nice lunch at a small local Jamaican restaurant in Teaneck, NJ called 'A Taste Of Island Spice'. I ate the Jerk Chicken and rice which was excellent.

A Taste of Island Spice is an unassuming, small place that serves up huge flavor at an affordable price. It will win no prizes in ambiance or decor. It;s what you might find in the heart of Kingston. The draw here is the food. It is excellent, albeit not fancy. It is exactly what I look for in ethnic cookingl... More
