I pulled into the parking lot to find a lady peering into the restaurant's dimmed interior. "Oh no." rang inside my head. It all made sense.
Ravenous and with an insatiated penchant for Caribbean cuisine, my eyes fell upon the nearby storefront of Radica's Hot & Spicy. A vivacious red with flashing "Open" sign sent some home, thus I advanced. A whiff of spices welcomed me in, followed by an ecstatic greeting.
Some eight minutes later, I happily departed, sustenance in tow.
Both were accompanied with a lukewarm and decidedly salty coleslaw, with several pieces of chicken served atop even saltier rice. My preference lay with the Stew Chicken, for the flesh was plush and the robust, savoury properties were as close to an oxtail braise as I could get for the time being. Despite being priced $1.50 greater at $13.49 (pre-R&P), the Curried Chicken was atrociously dry and relatively bland.
The Peanut Punch, on the other hand, was quite the delicacy. Miracle's had been thick and shake-like, whereas Grace's bore noticeable depth alluding to additions of vanilla and a finite amount of salt.
