Blue Mountain Cuisine
NW corner of 228 Street &
8 a.m. - 12 midnight, seven days a week
Caribbean islands have always been well known for their exotic dishes with
a penchant for spice not suited for the faint of heart.
Jamaican-American cuisine at Shelly’s Blue Mountain is no exception.
early every day, the Cambria Heights corner eatery serves traditional
Jamaican breakfasts such as cornmeal and hominy porridge, ackee and
saltfish and mackerel with your choice of sweet plantain or “food,”
the colloquial group of roughage which translates to boiled green bananas,
fried or boiled dumplings and boiled yam.
lunch menu includes chicken and beef patties as well as smaller portions
of dinner foods— brown stew chicken, curry goat, curry shrimp,
escoveitch (fricassee-style) fish and then some.
Lunch and dinner come with your choice of rice and peas or white
choices include popular soft drinks, Squeez’r fruit juices, imported
Jamaican sodas and all-natural vegetable juices and “roots” tonics.
small space allows for limited eat-in capabilities, but the reggae music
and the song in the accents of its primarily Jamaican patrons are most
welcoming all the same.
