Hakka (Indian-Chinese) Restaurants - Kimling, Frederick

Is there such a thing as real Hakka resturaunts that anyone would be familiar with? Thus far, the fast food version of what is available is always oily (noodles, rice, chili chicken etc) and is basically made with the cheapest meat that can legally be served. Is there anything out there that would be a healthier and tastier choice to the greasy fork & spoon known as Fredrick's?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly - Jerk Chicken @ Caribbean Wave

The Jerk Chicken at Caribbean Wave is not what was expected by me. Its saucy variation can't compare to Jamaican style jerk which is usually seasoned with a dry rub or with a gravy/hot sauce for heat. My work colleagues and I used to go quite frequently having worked around the corner, but the place has quickly turned into a West Indian "rum shop" and the service is horrible. We stopped going because our lunch hour was turning into an hour and a half due to the owner/staff's inability to recognize that we were not there to "lime", but to get our food quickly and get out the door. The best jerk in the city is on Eglington West and other spots throughout the city that use the method of smoking the meat in a steel drum, not pouring jerk sauce and throwing it in the oven.
