Jamaican and Trinidadian

3426 W Washington Blvd , Crenshaw ( 323 ) 732 - 8865
If you want Jamaican food in LA, Jucy Natraliart is the MAN! Tremendous oxtails and curried goat, with the usual fixings including fried plantains and wonderful beans 'n rice. Add some habanero sauce and a glass of sorrel or Ting for my favourite Jamaican in LA. Warning - go early and be nice to Jucy, he's a cool dude but it's a small operation and he's pretty busy.

Jerk chicken gets mixed reviews but the oxtails and curried goat at this charmingly named Jamaican restaurant are to die for. Beef pattie - really good.
