Steps from the C train in Clinton Hill, Dajeh (pronounced day-jah) serves West Indian soul food with a nostalgic, home-cooked flavor. The narrow-but-inviting space with a bar in back features wood paneling on warm, mustard walls and an upbeat jazz soundtrack. To begin, unique soups like light fish tea and the gumbolike pepper pot join bourbon hot wings and flaky, bite-size black-bean-mash samosas. Huge roti wraps filled with a spicy mix of chickpeas, potatoes, eggplant, broccoli, carrots, and squash get a sweet contrast from a topping of apple chutney. Mains like flavorful jerk chicken (with a white- or dark-meat option) and succulent baby-back ribs come with a choice of two sides: rice and peas, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, or mixed vegetables. Brunch offers a deep-fried chicken and waffle, thick almond-crusted brioche French toast stuffed with sweet cheese and fruit compote, and deep-fried bacalao (salt cod) and potato cakes served with guacamole and plantains.Recommended Dishes
