Jacksonville "Hole in the Wall" Restaurants, Part 7September 12, 2014 5 comments Print Article
Five more Jacksonville "hole in the wall" restaurants to try.
Do three restaurants with the same ethnic style of food, located within a half mile of each other, make a district? Let's say it does.
Irie's Caribbean is located near Sunrise Bakery and Island Tropics.
All three caribbean restaurants have their merits. Irie's food was stellar and they weren't afraid to lay the heat on their jerk chicken. Eating the spicy food in their hot box of a building made for an sweaty meal, which would be fine if I could have walked out of the door and jumped into the sea. Their veggies weren't overly stewed/steamed, which seems to be the M.O. for most Caribbean spots. Their veggies had some crunch, which was nice.
