The Dutch Pot

You'd be hard-pressed to find a Jamaican joint more authentic than Dutch Pot, a homey lunch counter and dining room in the heart of North Lauderdale. Make no mistake, this is straight-up soul food: fall-off-the-bone jerk chicken is whacked into bone-in chunks and plated with thyme-scented rice and peas; curry chicken and goat lavish in rich, bone-sucking sauce that's not too spicy; ackee and saltfish marries Jamaica's ripe island fruit with delicate cod. On the side, choose from dumplings, fritters, stewed cabbage, and bammy. There are three portion sizes to every dish, ranging from light snack to relative trough, and the prices are dirt cheap.
