Island Soul - A Caribbean Jem in Ajax

I have been to the Island Soul restaurant/take-out joint a couple of times. And today the sight of a coal-fired traditional barbecue outside the entrance enticed me, once again.

They had had barbecue chicken and the jerk chicken, so ordered both.

The barbecue chicken was succulent, with a sauce more on the sweet-sour range.

The best, though, was the jerk chicken. Almost crispy skin but not too blackened, and the meat was appropriately dry.

The rice-with-peas was also excellent as always.

In short, this is one place in Ajax that delivers consistency.

Debbie's Cafe in Ajax

Recently visited Debbie’s CafĂ© in Ajax.

I had a cappuccino and a chocolate cheese cake to go with. I am not a big fan of desserts, but the cake was marvellous.
