Sir Winston's Jamaican Restaurant in Deerfield Beach: First Look
It's not just Deerfield Beach residents. Travelers venture from Delray and Hollywood to get a taste of authentic Jamaican fare, according to Winston himself. So what took us so long to get to him?
"You'll have the oxtail, and you'll have the curry goat," he told my friend and I upon our first visit. After a bit of negotiation, I ended up with the jerk chicken. A large order is $8.50 and could feed me three times over. "You won't have to cook tonight," he laughed, ensuring the meal would last more than once.
Henry preps the jerk chicken by marinating it in his Walkerswood jerk seasoning overnight and cooks it slow in the morning. While the seasoning may be commercial, it's the preparation that makes all the difference. There isn't a single piece of meat he serves that doesn't fall right off the bone.
Grab a Jamaican soda - ginger beer or pineapple flavor - instead of the American options ($1.35). It does, in fact, get imported from the homeland.
While his Delray and Hollywood visitors may try to encourage him to expand, Sir Winston doesn't have the means. For now, we'll take our oxtails and jerk chicken when we can get it.
