When Menlo residents are in the mood for some Caribbean food, they go to the Back A Yard Caribbean grill. The relaxed, unassuming dining room is decorated with bright murals depicting Caribbean life, sure to captivate your attention while you are waiting for what is mostly Jamaican cuisine, heavy on the jerk sauce, seafood and coconut milk, happily merged with American favorites.
Jamaican jerk meals come with your choice of chicken, pork, salmon or steak, and rice, beans, fried plantains and a salad. Believe it or not, there is even jerk tofu. If you want to try something truly Jamaican, you will have to come on Saturday, when they serve Ackee and Codfish with rice and beans and fried plantains.
