Known to all that come here as simply "The Jerk Hut,"
Percys Boston Style Jerk Restaurant brings West Indians from all over the Caribbean
to Laurelton for a taste of Jamaica.
The takeout, made-to-order, catering hut makes a nice blend of
Caribbean dishes such as Escoveitch Fish, Curry Goat, Oxtails and specialty soups like
Goat Head Soup, Red Pea Soup and Chicken Soup For The Soul. But, needless to say, the main
attraction of the restaurant is its expertise in making jerk dishes.
The Jamaican jerk sauce is a peppery, mild seasoning the enhances the
taste of meats and is not very hot. Jerk specialties at the hut include Jerk Chicken, Jerk
Pork and Jerk Shrimp.
My delight is the Jerk Chicken with Sweet Sauce, because the hot sauce
can burn the taste buds right out of your mouth.
A dinner order includes your choice of rice (my favorite is rice and
peas, which can be ordered as a side dish) and fried plantains with enough to feed two for
the price of one.
Dont forget the mac and cheese.
If West Indians will travel 30-minutes from Nassau County to this
Queens neck of the woods to eat here . . . it is clear that this is definitely the place
to be. Most nights (especially Thursday and Friday), patrons must be have full patience
because the line can go out the door.
Even if you run in for a Beef or Chicken Pattie, the countrys
special hard dough bread (which goes great with the Curry Chicken), or the national dish
of Ackee and Saltfish, the Jerk Hut . . . excuse me Percys Boston Style Jerk
Restaurant . . . gives you "nuf food and tis good mon."
