I'm a sucker for Caribbean jerk, a cooking style native to Jamaica.
The meat is rubbed with a mixture of spices, usually containing Scotch bonnet peppers, which are among the fieriest chili peppers on the planet. Other spices, such as allspice, cinnamon, garlic and cloves, are added.
Just Jerks offers authentic Caribbean-style food truck cuisine. If you can stand the heat, ask for the spicy version of the Maniac Sauce. CONNIE POST/STAFF
If you like this style, check out Just Jerks: Ena's Jamaican Grill. It is 100 percent authentic Caribbean jerk-style cuisine. I recently discovered their food truck at RiverScape.
Choose a wrap, rice bowl or sliders. I went with the wrap. It comes with mozzarella, cabbage and a delightful concoction called "Maniac Sauce," which takes this street food to the next level. I hate too much sauce on any sort of street food -- I don't like it trickling down my chin, saturating my napkin or getting all over my clothes. What I appreciated about my Just Jerks wrap was the perfect amount of sauce -- enough to get the full explosion of flavors but without any inconvenient drippiness.
Shredded cabbage adds a wonderful crunchy texture to the spicy-and-chewy ingredients.
