We started with the fried plantains. We first had fried plantains last year when we went to New Orleans Jazz Fest, and one of the tents was serving them with a side of jama-jama, a deliciously simple spinach dish. John fell totally in love with them, so they seemed like a great appetizer choice. I don't generally use oil much at home, so this was also a bit of a treat for that reason. The plantains were cooked perfectly. John said he would rather eat them than French fries, and for him, there is practically no higher praise!
For my entree, I chose the Rasta Pasta, a tricolor pasta dish with veggies and a cheezy, spicy tomato sauce (sprinkled with Daiya). It was creamy, fresh and delicious!
John chose a tofu vegetable curry dish with rice. As you can see it was saucy, and it was spicy without being too hot. We both cleaned our plates, and washed everything down with a pitcher of water flavored with a watermelon slice.
The service at One Love was outstanding, the food authentic, and the price was great as well. The small cafe could probably get crowded at certain times of day (we went in the afternoon and it was empty), and the food does take a while to come out (it is cooked to order and there was only one person working when we were there), so if you choose to visit, be sure that you can let yourself give in to the relaxed atmosphere. Listen to the Jamaican music, smell the spice in the air, and enjoy!
