Authentic Caribbean in Gresham.
There's nothing elegant or polished about the setting or the food, but Maxine's offers a genuine taste of the islands. Jerk chicken is assertive, coated in a smoky blend of spices and baked until tender. The gamy curried goat requires an adventurous palate, as does the escovitch, marinated and fried snapper or kingfish slathered in onions, garlic, and scotch bonnet peppers, which give it serious heat. The homemade ginger beer is a refreshing complement to the spicy fare.
