I ordered the Half Reggae Reggae Jerk Chicken with Jam-Mac 'n' Cheese, which is Jamaican Macaroni and cheese and the Caribbean slaw, which is coleslaw. My husband got the Curry goat with plain rice and Caribbean roti.
We were so surprised at how quickly it came. It was about a 5 minute wait, which was good because we were so hungry! The presentation was nice, and came served on a fancy little fold up tray table, which obviously I had to take a picture of 😜. First impressions, my husband wasn't happy with the portion of the curry. I was surprised at how dry the Caribbean slaw was, there was no mayonnaise or salad cream in sight. It was more of a salad tbh 😳 Later on I realised it said on the menu that it was without dressing 🤷🏿♀️ Does that even qualify as a coleslaw then, lol? Everything else looked really good, and I was excited to try it.
The chicken was nice and pipping hot like I like, and was cooked well, yet still moist, and quite flavoursome. It had an overpowering bbq sauce though, so tasted more like bbq chicken to me than jerk chicken like I expected. The skin was super soft, which I wasn't keen on. I prefer a crisp chargrilled skin, but hey. I enjoyed it fairly regardless. The macaroni cheese was cold, which was such a disappointment! I was so hungry, and getting the waiters/waitresses attention had been a struggle since we came in, so unlike me I decided to just firm it and eat it and not ask to get it heated up. By the time I was half way through I was forcing it down, but I was too embarrassed to ask at this point, seeing as I had ate most of it 😩😂 It also had sweet bell peppers in it, which was a bit random and I feel didn't compliment it at all tbh. The coleslaw was 90% onion and cabbage, so although I hate wasting food, I really couldn't bring myself to finish it.
My husband's Curry goat looked good, but to my surprise he didn't enjoy it at all. He said the curry was watery, and that the meat tasted like lamb rather than goat. Although, I tasted it and it was ok, my husband really wasn't happy 😂 (continued in the comments)
