California Eats: Taste of the Islands @ Downtown [LA]


Even though this restaurant has closed its shutters since we visited, I wanted to share this plate because I really liked the food and the hospitality of the owner when we were there. It was a tiny place in a strip mall, and the decor was simple and understated, but we felt completely at home there. It serves authentic Jamaican food, according to Yelp, and I’ve never had Jamaican food before.


Grilled chicken plate! Chicken thighs, not that chicken breast bullshit. It was so moist and the skin was so thin and crispy — yummy! Rice was good too, and a healthy serving of veggies. Why wouldn’t anyone come here more? I’m actually sad that it’s closed.
