Meal today is from Dutch pot jamaican cuisine. I had every intention to order tripe and beans but when I saw the cow's foot, I couldn't resist. I got a medium, a giant medium, and it came with salad(more like a pickled slaw) and rice and peas. I like to think I can eat a fair amount and I barely made a dent in the meal. To be fair, I also ordered a large gungo pea soup.
The cows feet(has homestyle dumplings too) was good, nice flavor similar to the brown sauce I think. Texture wise, it was very soft with loads of skin, fat and collagen. Almost too rich for me actually. Rice and peas were great; the salad added a nice counter as it was tart and crunchy. Of course, I doused heavily with hot sauce.
The soup was very good; chunks of beef, root veggies, dumplings, thyme, etc. Seems like a jamaican sancocho(less animals tho).
What surprised me about the meal is the sweetness that both dishes had; very interesting, unexpected and delish.
The place looks raw, but food and portions are great. They also had grain nut ice cream. I use a lifeline and phone a friend to find out that it's vanilla ice cream with a nut similar to pistachio. Next time- ice cream! And
Akee next time too! They breakfast look superb!
