I love when Bestie's around! Since she's not around much, I try to make sure I see her as much as possible. We had dinner at Ms. lily's a couple of weeks ago. I came across the restaurant when it was featured in one of my daily food newsletters. I was in the mood for Jamaican food so I couldn't wait to get there! We were famished so we immediately ordered the Middle Quarters PepperShrimp.
I'm a big fan of peel and eat shrimp. This was even better because it was served with super spicy pepper sauce. Amazing! The sauce was fire! After that experience I knew spicy was the way to go for dinner. I ordered Jerk Chicken.
It showed up looking pretty plain, but they brought along a bottle of jerk sauce and I obviously doused the chicken.
Holy moly! The best jerk sauce I have ever tasted!! It was crazy hot though. Very spicy and not for those who can't handle the heat. The chicken was served with rice and peas and plantain.
The plantain was perfect. The rice and peas were good but there were some crunchy parts so perhaps it was a bit undercooked. Bestie ordered the Bushman Bowl.
Stew peas, ackee and mushrooms and sweet potato. She was loving every bite. I was a fan of the greens but I think it needed some more seasoning. The stew peas were mouthwateringly good. There were definitely other items on the menu that I would love to try. Red Snapper, I've got my eye on you!
Miss Lily's has been getting a lot of press these days and it's totally worth the hype. I'm glad we were able to get a seat there and enjoy a really good meal. I will definitely be back!
