Dubplate Kitchen and Jamaican Cuisine

Have you been to Dubplate Kitchen and Jamaican Cuisine yet? It's a small restaurant tucked away on El Camino Avenue near Watt. When it opened late last year, I noticed that there were a couple of vegan options on the menu, and I've been meaning to try it ever since. Finally, I had lunch there today with my friend Greta.

The vegan options on the menu, which looks like it changes regularly, were the soup of the day -- split pea and pumpkin -- ital stew, and vegan curry chicken. The ital stew made with cauliflower and garbanzo beans sounded good, but both Greta and I wanted the curry chicken.

Great choice! The curry sauce was delicious, and there was a generous serving of vegan chicken, even though we both ordered the small plate. It came with soup, rice and beans, cabbage, and fried plantains, which were especially tasty. I would definitely go back again for this dish.
