(This venue is closed.) No, not Jamaican; the colors of the awning are all wrong. This tiny storefront serves takeout food from Suriname, a South American country whose colonial heritage is still evident in the names of many menu items. Listen to the pronunciation of garnalen as often as you like; for any but native Dutch speakers, the precise sound of that initial consonant may prove elusive. It's easier to stick with English and order the shrimp sandwich ($4), modestly sized but given bulk by potatoes that are curried with the crustaceans — the spiciness has a sweet undercurrent — and complemented by crunchy pickles.
