Jam Doung Style is known for preparing and serving their traditional Jamaican dishes in a bright, casual space. I didn’t have to be bright or smart to know that this food would be delicious. Let’s get into it:
- Jam Doung is bright and located at the corner of their street. It is the definition of a carry out spot. You walk in, place your order, and wait for your number to be called. Jam Doung does not have an extensive menu. I like to call it short and sweet, because you know the few items are about me made exquisitely. You wiill find your favorites such as jerry & curry chicken, oxtails, and rice & peas. I’m a big fan of jerk, but I’ve heard that if a place can make curry chicken tastes good then you are eating at the right place. I had to throw my detective glasses on and see what they were talking about.
- I dove right into my plate of curry chicken, rice & peas, mac & cheese, and cabbage. I took about three bites before realizing that half of it was gone. I was thoroughly enjoying myself. The curry chicken was falling off of the bone and marinated with some much damn flavor. The way I was trying to get every bite, you would have thought i never had Jamaican food in my life. the rice and peas was seasoned and hearty. I love how they make a simple dish tastes so good. The mac & cheese was on point as expected. It was cheesy and had that nice layer of crust with it. Lastly, the cabbage was better than one you can make. It was fresh and dense with few other vegetables too. Best believe that the next time I’m in DC, I am stepping here with my gang like.. (& Black Women Lives Matter too)
