Cee Dee Jamaican Kitchen

For forever Andrew and I have been driving by this place on Swan near Speedway (next to Top Banana, FYI) called Cee Dee Jamaican Kitchen. Its grand opening seemed to never come, but finally one day we were running errands and noticed an actual "Open" sign in the window. We instantly pulled a u-turn and stopped in for lunch.

We were the only ones in the place besides the owners and a friend of theirs. It was a cool, cozy, tasty relief from a hot, busy day. Perhaps the locale was a little cee dee (seedy) but that's part of the charm, as the name suggests.

We both had the $5 lunch special consisting of a plate of food with two sides. I had the curry chicken (includes rice) with plantains and festival (possibly named after the likes of some fried thing you would eat at a carnival?) for my sides. I also got a glass of the carrot juice. (Tastes like a carroty version of horchata. Delish.) My ears were not left out of the fun as the reggae delighted them.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and 11 a.m. to midnight Thursdays-Saturdays. Phone: 520-795-3400.
