You know from my multiple posts about Cool Runnings in Cary that I loooove Jamaican food, especially the patties.  Since I’ve been raving about Cool Runnings, I’ve heard about a few other places in the Triangle to check out.  I finally got to do that this past Wednesday in Durham.

At Cool Runnings, I usually order a patty with jerk sauce and either rice and peas or fried plantains.  I figured I’d give JamaicaX2 a shot at the patty and fried plantains.  Seemed like the obvious choice as the food on the serving line looked pretty unappealing.  The patty was different from those at Cool Runnings – more meat, less spices.  Still good.  The fried plantains were pretty good, but surely those are tough to mess up.  The jerk sauce was very different from what they serve at Cool Runnings – not sweet but tangy and a lot hotter.  Honestly, it was kind of like a cross between barbecue sauce and Tobasco.  I’m not sure I liked it.  I’d still definitely drop in for a patty if I were in the neighborhood and had a craving.

Other places I want to check out: Jamaica Market, Virgil’s Jamaica, and Jamaica Paradise Cafe
