Tropic Island Jerk Chicken

OMG..This was a great experience; my granddaughter and-I went at 8 30 pm Usually places have minimal food etc. but they had plenty. My baby had not had jerk before; so being leary she's like....Naaa... So I said I would order one order and we would share, she says ok then. Oh she's 19,,,... So I did just that. Well long story short after eating she came and gave a high five for her appreciation of the food and I had to agree. Including the chocolate cake. And it was enough to share. I will go back...WHO KNEW lol

My husband and I have been to the Tropic Island Jerk in Cal City. The food is excellent! The staff is very friendly and was very helpful when I placed my order! I ordered the curry goat & jerk chicken wings & was very satisfied! The plantains were excellent as well... We'll definetly be back! ;-))

Tropic Island in Chatham (King Dr) has the absolute best tasting, most authentic Jerk Chicken in the city. I've tried a couple of other places and they pale in comparison. The sauce, bread and plantains are always perfect and on point. In recent years, they've added a buffet/type counter where you can order pre-cooked items and sides. If you're feeling a little adventurous, try the meaty Ox tails or excoveitched Red Snapper! Don't forget to wash it all down with a Ting.
