Morgan’s Island Grill is an excellent spot in Mercer County for Jamaican fare: jerk, curry and stewed chicken; whiting, shrimp and snapper made to order; and hearty beef and chicken patties. The jerk spice rub here is sweeter than others I’ve tried, but still assertively spicy. There’s curry chicken or goat roti on the menu, and ackee and saltfish with callaloo and fried dumplings on weekends. The tidy storefront in downtown Hightstown, NJ has half a dozen tables to eat in, and does a brisk take out business.
