What I Ordered
I’ve had the pleasure of eating many clean meals created by owner Emily Rankin over the years. For this review, I ordered the lively and delish Island Jerk Bowl with roasted pork as the protein choice. The tropical bowl of tender pork with fresh and crisp veggies over Jupiter brown rice was devoured in minutes. With a hint of coconut flavor, the fluffy rice absorbed the mildly spiced Caribbean sauce that was good enough to slurp…so I did. Pineapple salsa draped the shredded purple cabbage, carrots, and kale making this bowl a slam dunk in taste and quality. The plantain chips are some of the best I’ve had.
