If you love Caribbean food and specifically authentic Jamaican cooking, then you have got to stop in and visit Angie and her family.
Angie’s Place is one of those hidden gems that is one of those non descript places you would drive by and not give a second glance. But you’d be wrong to do so. Located on the 27/28 Sideroad just east off Highway 26 north of Stayner, Angie’s Place has been serving authentic Caribbean cuisine for 13 years now and her fans are legion. Just read the reviews on Trip Advisor to see what I mean.
The smell when you walk in through the screen door is heavenly. With menu items like Curry Goat, Jerk Chicken and Stewed Oxtail, this is what I call Flavour Town. The roti is delish (try the Jerk BBQ pork) and if you want to bring on a flood of Jamaican holiday memories, get the Ackee and Salt Fish. You can see Petronella cooking in the kitchen and trust me, she is making you a great big meal that will last you two days. I hear that Angie’s dumplings are out of this world but they do require an advance order so I’ve never managed to be quite that organized. Dessert offerings include traditional Jamaican rum cake and coconut drop cookies that are addictive.
You can pop in and see what’s on the stove or you can order ahead. There are a couple of tables inside and picnic tables outside or you can take-out.
Angie’s place is open year around Tuesday to Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. You can find the menu, prices and directions on their website. Really, next time you are in the area, make this a must for you to try.
