njinla My favorite meals are served on throw away plates, eaten over crates, and today's mariscos lunch has joined the ranks. The Lobina (sea bass) tostada was a revelation, cured 48 hours in salt. Hands down the best I've had this summer. Big ups to @theglutster for putting me on. 1w

  •   ask4mo Love this!7d
  •   njinla @topbananas48 This is all so valuable, thanks for sharing! This drink is about $10 but I'd love to try peanut punch in a restaurant. What are your fave Jamaican spots in LA? 6d
  •   topbananas48 1) Natraliart (off Washington near Crenshaw blvd), very much a hole in the wall spot. I go here the most though because they have a lil grocery store next door with hard to find items they've imported. Also because they make peanut punch and sell canned ones in the store. 6d
  •   topbananas48 2) Coley's (in North Hollywood), has a better ambience. It used to be by The Forum. I know they had a buffet on Sundays but not sure if they still do that. 3) Wi Jammin (off Pico near La Brea), Another whole in the wall...this is more for takeout. 4) Lastly, got a number for a dude who makes legit Jamaican food behind a barber shop near Wi Jammin 6d
  •   njinla @topbananas48 Natraliart (aka Juicy's) is where I go to. Been meaning to go to Wi Be Jammin. I'm gonna message you for the secret spot. Thanks for all of your feedback, much appreciated! 6d
  •   topbananas48 No prob 6d
