Right off the bat, this Jamaican hole-in-the-wall “fast food” joint- is an absolute must try…maybe its got 1 table that seats-4 and a handful of counter-seats–so don’t expect to be entertaining your future in-laws there–or holding a bridal shower, or something like that!
I think that you guys know or should know by now, that Jeff Eats is always “straight” with you…unlike many food “critics”- “bloggers”- “so called experts”- my sole goal is to find cool joints that are banging out delicious food. I really have no interest in the “hows and whys” the food got made.
Anyway, back to Jamaica Kitchen…
A number of years ago, Mrs. Jeff Eats “forced” me to do a 7-day Caribbean cruise with our kids. The two dolls (back then aged 11 and 4) played so much BINGO on the cruise, that when they got home to Boca Raton, they wanted to become Catholics…On that same cruise, Jeff Eats treated “himself” to a $5 tee shirt that said “We Be Jammin’”– Rather than going into a long winded story, let’s just say- that Jeff Eats’ knowledge of Jamaican cuisine–is kinda on the limited side–after-all, curry goat, curry ox-tail, jerk chicken weren’t exactly Thursday night staples at my mother’s Brooklyn kitchen table in the 1950s-1960s.
With that in mind, the other day I ate at Jamaica Kitchen and I gotta tell you-that the stuff served-up was fabulous. Now nothing for nothing–Jeff Eats doesn’t have a huge “file” to compare the “tried” jerk chicken/curry shrimp/fricassee chicken/mild beef patty- with…but I am telling you, the food was DELICIOUS.
From what I understand, Jamaica Kitchen (which has been around for something like 32 years) is owned by a Chinese husband-wife team who were raised in Jamaica…that’s the reason why- Jamaica Kitchen’s menu has both Jamaican and a handful of Chinese dishes like -Chinese roast chicken and suey mein listed.
Finally-you should know…Jamaica Kitchen is kind of a famous “hole in the wall.” When you check its website, www.jamaicakitchen.com for menu/prices you will find a number of newspaper/magazine articles and a September 2008 Food Network segment- where Guy Fieri of “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” gives the joint a rave review.
Like I said at the top of this tale, Jamaica Kitchen is an absolute must try.
Jamaica Kitchen is open Monday-Saturday 11am-8pm, closed on Sunday.
***** Dumpling King, 2064 North University Drive, Pembroke Pines, Florida, 33024, (954) 362-4966.
Got a real good fast food Chinese joint for you guys to check-out, Dumpling King in Pembroke Pines.
Simple tale to tell, yesterday afternoon, Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats “discovered” Dumpling King and the joint’s food totally blew us away! Order at counter/ food delivered to table, inside table seating, reasonably priced flavored bubble teas – boiled/ fried/ steamed dumplings – appetizers – soups- dips- entrees- noodles menu.
Let’s wrap Dumpling King up by saying, that if this joint was a drop closer to Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton abode, we definitely would be real steady customers/ that the joint is open Monday, Wednesday-Sunday 11am-9pm closed on Tuesday/ that in addition to its Pembroke Pines’ location, Dumpling King has a joint in North Miami Beach and a joint in Miami Beach, and that Dumpling King is an absolute must try.

About this event…
The Immediate Family is a unique group of iconic musicians who have played together for decades but never as their own band. Known for their long, illustrious careers backing up such Hall-of-Fame artists such as James Taylor, Keith Richards, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, Stevie Nicks and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, guitarists Danny Kortchmar and Waddy Wachtel, drummer Russ Kunkel, and bassist Leland Sklar have come together, along with guitarist Steve Postell, to perform their own songs as The Immediate Family, a band that can legitimately be called a supergroup. The powerhouse rockers have toured nationally and in Japan.
The Immediate Family (the modern iteration of a legendary studio ensemble known as “The Section”) is a rock and roll band composed of four of the most recorded, respected and sought-after players in modern music: Danny Kortchmar (guitar and vocals), Waddy Wachtel (guitar and vocals), Leland Sklar (bass), Russ Kunkel (drums) and the addition of prominent touring, session guitarist and songwriter Steve Postell (guitar and vocals). Frequent collaborators both in the studio and on-stage, their work can be heard on albums from Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Nicks, Keith Richards, Warren Zevon, Graham Nash, Neil Young, David Crosby and many, many, many more. Kortchmar, Sklar and Kunkel have worked together since the early 70s and made up three-quarters of The Section, best known for both their studio and live work in support of some of the top selling singer/songwriters and solo singers in the history of music, as well as their own acclaimed instrumental albums. (By mid 70s, they were later joined by Wachtel). Collectively, these musicians helped define the sound of a generation.
Danny Kortchmar’s credits as guitarist, producer, songwriter, and session musician include work with James Taylor, Don Henley, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne and Billy Joel, among many others. As a songwriter, Kortchmar has both written alone or collaborated with numerous artists, penning indelible tracks such as Don Henley’s “Dirty Laundry,” “All She Wants to Do Is Dance,” and “New York Minute,” as well as Jackson Browne’s “Somebody’s Baby” and “Shaky Town,” to name a few.
Legendary guitarist, producer and songwriter Waddy Wachtel has worked with many of the same artists as Kortchmar, as well as artists like the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards, Stevie Nicks, Randy Newman, Bryan Ferry and the late Warren Zevon, with whom he co-wrote and produced a number of hit songs including “Werewolves of London,” which The Immediate Family has included in their set list. Wachtel’s production work includes Keith Richards, Bryan Ferry, George Thorogood and The Church, and he has composed numerous scores for feature films.
Leland Sklar has performed in the studio and on tour with Phil Collins, James Taylor, Toto and Billy Cobham, to name a few. Actually, Sklar has the most credits of any of the members of The Immediate Family, having worked on over 2,600 albums.
