Our Jerk Chicken

Jerk Chicken is believed to have been conceived when the Maroons introduced African meat cooking techniques to Jamaica which were combined with native Jamaican ingredients and seasonings used by the Arawak. The method of smoking meat for a long period of time served two practical purposes, keeping insects away from the raw meat and preserving it for longer once it has been cooked. This process also introduces a strong smoky flavour to the meat.

Jerk Chicken Wednesdays: $9.99 + GST

Traditional Jamaican Fried Dumplings

Jamaican Escoveitched Fish

Escoveitched fish is a traditional Jamaican dish served for breakfast on the weekends and normally served with bammies (a type of fried cassava bread). However, you can enjoy this dish any time of day.

It’s similar to a ceviche, the difference being that the fish is fried, not raw. Sometimes escoveitched is spelled escovitch. It’s likely the origins of this dish are Spanish and it was introduced to Jamaica during the 16th century when the Spanish ruled the island. The word escoveitch is a corruption of the Spanish word escabeche, which is used to describe a dish as being pickled and pickling was a great way of keeping food from spoiling in the days of no refrigeration. Order your escoveitched fish today.
