50% Off Jam Doung
Scout Notes: When we think of Jamaica, several things come to mind: awesome beaches, Bob Marley, bobsledding and now Jam Doung, the Jamaican eatery in Bloomingdale. "If you go to Jamaica and you want to sound cool, you call it Jam Doung," said the eatery's owner/head chef Janet. And Janet should know. She's from Jamaica, er, Jam Doung, and serves up an enticing selection of her family's secret recipes. "They've been passed down for generations," she said, speaking of the jerk chicken, stewed oxtail and curry goat that simmered in the back kitchen, emanating an aroma that can only be described as righteous. Yes, here you eat with your sense of smell first. Your olfactory system will help prepare your taste buds for the greatness to come.

Let's start by talking about the oxtail, a Jamaican delicacy usually reserved for special occasions, said Janet. At Jam Doung, they stew it for over three hours to ensure its tenderness before mixing it with savory chunks of carrot, potato and onion. What comes out is a feast, available in small, medium and large sizes. And if you've never tried Jamaican food before and want something a little less exotic but with an equal amount of flavor, order the jerk chicken. "It's spicy, but not over-the-top," said Janet, who cooks the dishes from scratch each day. We can't think of anything better to warm you up on a cold day than taking home a piping hot bite of the islands for dinner. Yeah, mon!

I love Jam Doung's food better than other nearby Jamaican cuisine alternatives. The curry chicken if flavorful, the Jerk Chicken is good and doesn't make your nose run from the heat, and the brown stew chicken is Tasty. I've never has the jerked wings but they look tasty too. Please do support this neighborhood gem.
