Cafes & Carryouts

For palates dulled by undistinguished flavors—and pocketbooks thinned by the high cost of eating out—this small, glass-fronted Jamaican cafe is an anti­dote. We go for the goat curry ($10.24), which has a vinegary tang that mitigates the insistent, peppery heat. If you’re timid in matters of spice, order a piece of puffy coco bread to go with it, and any of the fruit punches or ginger beer—their sweetness will bolster your defenses.
