Jamaican Jerk Cluck Entrée
The Food: We ordered the Jamaican Jerk Cluck entrée (with vegetables, sweet mango chutney, and house wild rice), the Peking Quack Sandwich (with soy quack, cucumber, avocado, scallions, and black sesame hoisin sauce), a House Blend Raw Yerba Mate Blueberry Lemonade, a Whoopie Pie and a Twinkle (a more wholesome version of a Twinkie). Everything was fresh, flavorful, and filling—just really very tasty and satisfying. And considering we got dinner, dessert, and a drink for two people for just under $30 (and for organic food at that), it was really very affordable.
Peking Quack Sandwich
The Jamaican Jerk Cluck’s sauce was bursting with flavor with just a hint of heat and complimented nicely with a more subdued simple wild rice. The Peking Quack was sweet and chewy, and heaped into a homemade grilled flatbread topped with cripsy cucumber and creamy avocado. It was nice to have a side of real fries – simple potato strips that were not coated in seasoning or over-salted. The Raw Yerba Mate Blueberry Lemonade is probably one of my new favorite drinks—refreshing, not overly sweet with just enough tartness. As for the Whoopie Pie -- well, you can’t go wrong with what is essentially a frosting sandwich. The Twinkle was a tiny bit dry, but flavorful and not guilt-inducing like the apocalypse-defying Hostess variety.
In summary: I will go back. I will try many more things on their menu. And I am all over their brunch that starts in two weeks.
Hours: Open 7 days a week, 11am to 3pm for lunch, 5pm to 10pm for dinner (They will start serving brunch on Saturdays and Sundays two weeks from now.)
