Howie's Healthy Living, Middle Quarters

A2 Highway
Middle Quarters
Tel: No phone's insider take:

An authentic Jamaican "cookshop," or roadside eatery, Howie's is well worth the detour if you're en route to nearby south-side attractions such as the Black River, YS Falls, or the Appleton rum distillery. Just look for the cinder-block building with crazy, colorful murals and a train of bubbling, wood-fired cauldrons. Order down-home delicacies like nutmeg-scented peanut porridge; goat stewed with curry, cloves, and allspice; and on weekends, "mannish water"—a peppery soup prized for its aphrodisiacal properties, with green bananas, dumplings, and, gulp, a goat's head. Wash it all down with a Red Stripe beer or fresh-squeezed fruit and vegetable juices. Credit cards are not accepted.—Chris Cox
