Review: Taste of the Island

The Jackson metro area has a wealth of great restaurants serving up Southern and American cuisine. You could eat out for weeks and never have the same fried catfish or cheeseburger twice.

Another of my regular lunch spots in the Jackson downtown area. The Jerk Chicken along with red bean rice is as good as it gets.

Jackson sure has changed. Once upon a time, “international food” meant Taco Bell, Dynasty, and not much more. But now it’s 2010, and one harbinger of the new era is the existence of Taste of the Island. This Carribean take-out restaurant is located right in the heart of downtown, and it’s bringing yet another flavor to the rapidly diversifying local food scene. Try the jerk chicken or the fried...
