We Now Have The Jamaican Dutchy Cart As A Lunch Option

A couple of days ago a post in the forums about a sighting of the Jamaican Dutchy cart on William St. (at Beaver) caught my eye. I didn’t have time to go investigate, but I didn’t have to because yesterday the midtown site confirmed that yes, the cart had moved downtown, but you may recognize it by the sign for “R. Retha’s” and the Jamaican flag waving above. There was a huge line when I walked by yesterday so it seems you guys didn’t need my help in sniffing this one out. As you can see, they have all of the good stuff but I’m interested in how it stacks up against old-timers Veronica’s Kitchen and the Trinidad & Tobago cart.



  • Arrived with coworker shortly before noon. No line.

    Got $9 goat curry, he got jerk chicken + a patty (what a fatty!)

    Good stuff. 2 plantain slices, and some vinegary coleslawish conconction. Could have used more liquid curry sauce component but pretty solid otherwise.

    I am planning to take the pepsi challenge with Veronicas soon to compare!

  • I suggest a downtown-jerk-chicken-palooza! I’ve never tasted them head to head before (or Veronica’s at all), but think that the Dutchy likely has T&T beat.
