Wat’s on Your Plate?

Harlem has always been known for its Soul Food. With famous restaurants like Amy Ruth’s, Sylvia’s and Red Rooster, the area is the “go to” for the city’s best fried chicken and collard greens. But as the neighborhood changed over the years Harlem has become a destination for an array of ethnic cuisines including Jamaican food.

One eatery that truly represents that place where Caribbean meets Harlem is “Wats on Your Plate” restaurant. Located on 142 Street in West Harlem, Wat’s on Your Plate serves up everything from jerk chicken to more traditional Harlem eats like fried whiting sandwiches and baked Mac n Cheese. For those looking for authentic Jamaican cuisine, their oxtails and curry goat are a must try. If you stop by for breakfast make sure you get the ackee and saltfish which comes with callaloo and festival(fried dough). They even press up their own fresh pineapple ginger juice.
