Tucked away in a strip mall on Farmington Ave lies Island Cuisine, a bustling little Jamaican eatery. Be warned: there’s no seating and minimal parking, but the near-perfect jerk seasoning (available on chicken or, on the weekends, pork) and plantains make the food worth the hassle. Make sure to ask about the daily specials, as the menu changes based on availability of ingredients.
