CAN"T HAVE IT YOUR WAY!!! – It's really unfortunate when you go someplace to get a meal and because of cheapness you can't have your food the way you'd like.
I got to the Golden Krust restaurant and order the ackee & salt fish which is only served on Fridays. I told the waitress I didn't want the "food" which is the boiled bananas and dumplings. She told me that that's the way it's served. i asked what if your allergic to the bananas or dumplings, she says "You must take it that's the way it's served"
I never heard of such a ludicrious statement. She was more concerned with not wanting to give me more of the ackee or saltfish because all the dumplings and bananas are fillers.
They certainly lost a customer with me.
Named after the golden crust of its signature turnovers, this Caribbean fast-food joint has been going strong since 1989. – In Short
When Jamaican-born Lowell Hawthorne decided to open a Bronx restaurant showcasing his favorite dishes from home, he had no idea his restaurant would eventually expand across ultiple states. The menu offers affordable tastes of Jamaica, including nine varieties of the chain's turnover-like "patties" in beef, chicken and fish. Also available are combo meals offering authentic dishes, including curried goat and jerk chicken, and traditional breakfast with ackee fruit or callallo and cod.
EXPENSIVE AND BELOW AVERAGE FOOD – The food was bland and not very good, plus you pay $13 for it! So ridiculous and not worth it.
