No matter how many times we pop by this Jamaican gem, we always find a sprig of fresh herbs in a curry or soup. That’s not the kind of attention we’d expect in a carryout amid a stretch of shops that includes four liquor stores. Don’t let the location put you off. This is slow cooking to seek out and savor. Two musts: the vibrant dark-meat jerk chicken and the fabulous curried goat, which warms the mouth with waves of spice.
