Ma Lou’s

Lonely Planet review

You expect kind of tacky African-themed corniness in the Coral Cliff Casino; the surprise is that the gaudiness hides an exciting nouvelle-Jamaican restaurant. Ma Lou is either humble or marketing-savvy enough to refer to herself as a ‘gourmet food shack.’ A hole in the wall this ain’t, but enough with the setting: how about the food? Roasted Peking chicken, curry with coconut and fried plantain, and specialty jerks grace this menu and, if you’re smart, your taste buds.
