Another meal at my desk, but at least I know the next one will be at The Stadium! Busier day today but not busy enough to prevent me from getting my eyebrows threaded at lunch and grabbing lunch from the Dutchy.
I've walked by the Dutchy's cart at 51st and 7th a number of times over the last couple of years, but never had time or the desire to wait in line and get some lunch. I must admit that on more than one occasion, I have stopped for a few seconds to watch whatever video was playing on the flat screen tv attached to the Dutchy's cart. That's right a flat screen TV, on a cart...gotta love New York! Today, there was no TV, so maybe that's why the line wasn't very long. Either way, I win.
I ordered a mini meal of jerk chicken, rice and peas and plantain (of course). I also ordered a chicken patty...just in case the mini was not enough. Turns out the mini was just right, at least the right portion. This was definitely not the best meal I've eaten, what did I really expect from a cart though.
The rice and peas were extremely dry and it did not help that the man who served the meal only drizzled a few drops of jerk sauce on the chicken. The chicken was dry, but definitely well seasoned and very spicy. The main problem with the meal was that you had to deal with the bones in the chicken. I've heard that the curry chicken doesn't have as many bones so I might try that next time...that's right, I plan to go back. When I go back, I definitely will not order the patty.
