How You Eat So Much? Try Mystic Jamaica - Guest Review by Mighty Sasha
There are dogs all over the world, so it should come as no surprise that we occasionally get cravings for good ethnic food. Mighty Sasha is especially partial to Mystic Jamacia. Located in a small, run-down shopping center at 15513 Warwick Blvd., the restaurant offers a wide range of island fare including a variety of savory pasties, piquant jerk chicken, rich oxtail stew, tender Jamaican barbequed ribs, and Mighty Sasha's favorite -- curried goat.
On weekends and by chance, the menu at Mystic Jamaica might also feature mannish water (a tasty goat soup reputed to be an aphrodisiac), cow foot ("the good gummy mon"), select seafood specialties, freshly made juices, and tangy ginger beer. Mighty Sasha often treats her delivery service to a large ginger beer, which is sufficient for making several dark and stormys. If you can't travel to Jamaica, do the next best thing. Load up your MP3 with Peter Tosh and your belly with curried goat. You may need a nap, but you won't be disappointed.
