Some sad news from Lunch’er Yury yesterday afternoon, who sent in the above photo of R. Retha’s Cart which got the Department of Health yellow sticker treatment on Wednesday. He took it during lunchtime when the Jamaican food cart that parks at William & Beaver was getting towed away. When I walked by this morning the truck wasn’t in its spot so it looks like it’s off the streets until they fix whatever issues need fixing. To those who work in the area, please let us know if you see the cart back in its spot.

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.

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.
