    Hi Mary, nice round up! I’ve visited the place a few times since the new year. I found the mac and cheese quite mushy and won’t really recommend actually. I enjoyed the Jerk Chicken though, but the Curry Chicken I had most recent was still frozen. 🙁 Maybe I caught them on a off day. It’s been a while but curious to try Island Spice again soon. At least the service at Mama’s is way friendlier, haha.

      Hi Dennis – Good to know. I still really loved that potato salad… and I did find the service was quite friendly and inviting. I hope it was just that you caught them on an off day! I was hoping the mac n cheese would be good since I enjoyed the potato salad so much.

    Hi Mary – You know that Mama Jamaica’s closed last week, don’t you?

      Hi Kirk! Yes, my co-worker told me on Monday. I forgot to put a little note on my post. I heard they were moving down the street to join with a Greek restaurant (thanks to Yelp). Thanks for reminding me though!
