Montclair South Enders may be missing Gags Caribbean, which closed this spring, but all they have to do is go down the hill to Bloomfield for a new favorite Jamaican restaurant.
Taste it Again, across from the Bloomfield Center redevelopment site, was started by Jacquline Warburton and Ivolett Bredwood, lifelong friends from Jamaica, in time for Bloomfield’s restaurant week in early March. Try the Ackee and Saltfish (“Jamaica’s National Dish” $13) and the tender Jerk Chicken ($10.50) and one of the homemade specialty drinks, like Sorrel (made from the herb) or ginger beer.
But vegetarians are advised to ask questions first, then order. The Stew Peas ($9) on the “vegetarian” menu contained chunks of beef.
The owners are friendly and welcoming and are now advertising breakfasts on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Taste it Again is located at 271 Glenwood Ave., Bloomfield. 973.743.5140.
