JAMAICAN COMFORT FOOD

Cherry's Jamaican Delight
by Zach Brown, Berks County Eats
I was very excited when I heard Cherry's Jamaican Delight
was moving to West Reading at the beginning of the year. The
new location would expose the restaurant - and the Jamaican
culture that inspires the cuisine - to a whole new audience that
otherwise may miss out.
Cherry's shares a wall with Chen Vegetarian House in the 700
block of Penn Avenue. It's a cozy location, one that previously
housed small cafes. There's limited inside seating - made more
limited by current guidelines - with a few more yellow and
green picnic tables set up out front.
For those not lucky enough to snag a table or those who prefer
to eat at home, Cherry's also offers takeout and delivery through
GrubHub.
We decided to take advantage of the online ordering through
the GrubHub app, but being just a short drive away, I opted
for takeout and the opportunity to see one of West Reading's
newest restaurants.

Avenues Fall 2020

I got a text notification that my order was ready for pickup early
so I made the quick trip from our Wyomissing home into West
Reading. Parking wasn't an issue as I was able to snag a space
right in front of the restaurant.
The restaurant's renovation still feels fresh. Most of the walls are
painted in a bright, vibrant yellow that is made more dramatic
by the lack of tables.
My order was waiting behind the counter, and I was in-andout and back home with my food in no time. Cherry's menu
features Jamaican comfort food like Pepsi brown stew chicken,
curried goat and several seafood options. But I had my sights
on the brown oxtail stew. Oxtail is a unique cut of meat. As the
name suggests, it comes from the tail of a cow. It's a gelatinous
meat. The slow-cooking in the stew helps cook it down a bit
but it still has a slightly chewy consistency, especially around
the bone. But the flavor is rich, and it was enhanced by the
brown stew sauce.
