"Jamaican food brings me happiness. It reminds me where I'm from," says Leighton Morgan, owner of Island Frydays. "The magical flavor is love."

Morgan's journey to a popular eatery on Short Vien took him from Jamaica to Connecticut (and back) before leading him to Cincinnati as a UC football player.
