New Orleans, LA
I am so glad I stumbled across this restaurant on urbanspoon. I had been getting bored of the restaurant scene in New Orleans and needed something to awaken my palette. Enter Boswell! I don’t know if that’s the name of our server but we decided to call him Boswell all night. I was having trouble deciding on my sides and so “Boswell” told me to just have a seat and he would bring out two sides for me!
My friend Adam and his fiancee Connie had ordered the Roti Chicken dinner plate and the Chicken Curry dinner plate. They tasted similar except one was covered by that famously thin and delicious flat bread. I loved the chicken curry sauce, I found myself stealing bits of it
I myself was in the mood for jerk chicken (Jamaican restaurant, come on!) I got the jerk chicken and pork combo. Luckily it was mostly chicken because that was the one with better flavor. Usually with jerk chicken dishes, the chicken tastes great but feels dry. This chicken was juicy and delicious!
Props to Boswell for picking out some delicious side dishes for me! The callaloo medley looks like creamed spinach minus the cream. It had juices and was packed full of flavor and spices. When I looked it up (cuz I had never heard of callaloo), this Jamaican spinach leaf is prepared with salt, scallions and onion and then steamed. yummy!
so the menu said “rice and peas” but I’m like 80% sure I was eating red beans and rice. it tasted good but I kept turning it over with my spoon, looking for those little green suckers that i despise. Fortunately, I did not run into a single one.
