Diehard Jamaican food fans will put up with more than a few inconveniences to satisfy their jerk chicken jones. Those hassles usually involve securing cash, driving to a part of town they may rarely visit, finding on-street parking, communicating with the owner through bulletproof plexi, and then eating in one's car or taking it on the road. A visit to Taste of Jamaica used to come with some of those aggravations, but now, thanks to comfortable new digs in a Mayfield Heights shopping center, all of that is in the rear view mirror. Order up that chicken curry, oxtail stew, and shrimp curry and grab a seat in the comfortable dining room for one of the tastiest island experiences in town.
