For my husband’s Birthday dinner, my daughter made reservations at a Jamaican restaurant in North Hollywood. Coley’s has been around for 25 years. It is family owned and the owners are the cooks and hosts. The dinner menu is big with many chicken and fish entrees. Our first course was a Red Bean soup that was incredible so good in fact that my husband wanted another little bowl and the waitress brought him one for his birthday. I ordered the Jerk Chicken entree and my husband ordered the Curried Chicken. Others in our party ordered some of the fish entrees. The portions are substantial and each entree is served with rice, steamed vegetables, plantains and a corn muffin.
I brought my husband’s birthday cake to the restaurant for our dessert and the restaurant was very gracious and brought out dessert plates and offered to bring us some Birthday candles. After dinner, our waitress asked if she could bring my husband a piece of Jamaican Rum cake for his birthday but I explained that he was a Diabetic and couldn’t have sugar which is why I made him a sugar-free cake. She wrapped a piece of it up in a to go box and brought it to me anyway and said I would love it for breakfast the next day with my morning coffee and she was right.
Coley’s also has authentic Jamaican sodas and soft drinks such as Tinga in citrus, sorrel, sour soup, or cola champagne flavors
