My husband and I ventured out to dinner at Manila Resto on a Friday evening. We were seated right next to the window on Algoma Street. On my left was the warm colorful atmosphere of the restaurant. On my right, the architecture and characters of Oshkosh.To start the...
Delivering a Taste of the Carribean
I still remember when the Jerk Joint first opened. It’s always so exciting when a new restaurant opens up in the Fox Valley. Jerk Joint was no different. First time there I ordered the sweet ting chicken. I left a review on yelp saying: “I wouldn’t be mad if this was my last meal.” To this day nothing has changed. I can honestly say I’ve never tried anything I didn’t like here. If I ever have a bad day, chances are I’m ordering something from here.
This time I did delivery. I haven’t eaten there in person since about early March 2020. Based on their social media accounts, they do seem to be open for in person dining. My go-to dish almost every time I go is the sweet ting chicken. This time I decided on ordering the 2 meat platter, (which includes peas cabbage, and rice) that way I am able to try a new meat, but also not neglecting my favorite dish. But I didn’t try anything new, I went with another fave… the drunken pig. Also every time I go, I always make sure to grab a slice of rum cake. It always makes me feel like I am right in the Caribbean with every bite I take. It is definitely a must try!
Bring Jamaica to Wisconsin
Thinking back to when I have dined there in person, they are always blasting reggae music, so it really makes me feel like I am in the tropics. Which is always a nice feeling, especially in Wisconsin! Even though we are coming up on spring, a bit of warmth via food is never a bad thing. Next time I really want to try the mango lime bowl. Come to the Jerk Joint if you want to treat your taste buds to the flavors of Jamaica!
