Only One Jamaican is a counter-service spot with two locations in Dorchester, and another two in Hyde Park and Brockton. The jerk chicken here is a little mild, but the curried goat is stellar. All entrees also come with a large serving of rice and peas, and in general, portion sizes are substantial enough to split over two meals. Don’t forget to pick up a few beef patties too - we all need a snack in between lunch and dinner. Only One Jamaican is currently open for takeout and delivery.
