D and D Island Grill JA is a food truck parked in a parking lot at 6245 E. Broadway Blvd. Owners Duwayne Hall and Danny Heath serve fried fish, curried goat, jerk chicken, oxtail, beef patties and delicious fruit-juice concoctions.

We stopped in last weekend and found Hall working away in the kitchen as his kids played in the nearby grass. A steady stream of visitors stopped in to eat or just say hello. Reggae music throbbed and a flag bearing the lion of Judah flapped in the hot breeze.

The food was great, and the fruit drinks they make from pineapple, carrot, ginger, apple, banana and mango were heaven. Another drink made from sour sop is purported to calm the nerves, and was equally heavenly. There are palm trees to dine under, icy Jamaican sodas and a calming island vibe that is a nice counterpoint to the hectic pace of city life.

The crew.

It can be difficult to find D and D's, so here are some directions: Get on Broadway Boulevard until you hit Wilmot Road; turn north; take the first U-turn and head back toward Broadway until you see a brightly painted truck in a parking lot on the northwest corner of Broadway and Wilmot, or you smell curry, whichever comes first. Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., every day but Sunday. They also cater. Call 867-0100 for more information.
