Caribbean Citations


13073218_10154159580583011_1131268450_o.jpgCaribbean Citations is a Jamaican restaurant located at 1208 Maple View Pl SE though it’s located right on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in the center of Historic Anacostia. I happen to love Historic Anacostia and really wanted to like Carribean Citations. The tagline of the place is “turn a parking ticket into a meal ticket,” since they offer discounts to those who bring in parking tickets and you can enter into a raffle for the restaurant to pay your parking ticket (one lucky winner is chosen each month). This is a fun idea, plus I went on a beautiful warm day and sat outside with old friends. The 13054630_10154159580468011_1314328440_ofood, however, left a bit to be desired. I ordered jerk chicken with plantains and coco bread. We all agreed that the coco bread basically tasted like a large dinner roll. The plantains were good, but the jerk chicken wasn’t as flavorful as it could have been. Nonetheless, this place would have gotten three stars, but for the fact that part of my chicken was blatantly undercooked. Fortunately, I didn’t end up with food poisoning, but I was less than pleased. The rum cake for dessert was very tasty though. My experience with undercooked chicken might well have been a fluke, but I can’t in good conscience let that slide.
