On Saturday, I tried Mama Jean's. 536 Ninth Avenue (between 39th and 40th
Streets), "The taste of Trinidad & Tobago with the soul of the Caribbean."  The
"Scrunters Special" ($7) was "stewed chicken served with peas and rice or
white rice and salad." I was told "scrunter" is a poor person who scrambles for
a living. I had the "roti," which was very good.
Othe dishes include accra, shandon bene shrimp, doubles, buccoo belly-full,
paramin pork, and pelau.
At age 80, Dominique St. Hillaire can still take the heat and has no desire
to leave the kitchen. That's where she is every day (except Sunday) cooking
lunch and dinner at Mama Jean's, a West Indian restaurant at 536 Ninth Ave.
(between 39th and 40th Sts.). The menu at the snug spot includes island eats she
 grew up on in Trinidad, says co-owner Fedner La Chapelle, her son.
Specialties  include braised oxtails and Soca Sunday, a homey dish of stewed chicken
served  with macaroni pie, stewed peas and rice.
