I expected Jamerica's food to be as bright as the restaurant's colorful facade. Unfortunately, the dishes I tried were bland and heavy - much like what my rural midwestern aunts might serve if they served tofu.
Eating outside was pleasant enough but the pepper pot calaloo, mango rundown, BBQ tofu and fried plantains were all oil-heavy and ultimately forgettable. The rice and beans and accompanying potatoes were more of the same.
The service was friendly if not always attentive. The interior of the restaurant was rather time-worn, the lighting more dim than atmospheric.
There are many other restaurants on Willy Street worth visiting if you're in the neighborhood.
