Just the mere thought of any of Jamaica’s top 10 favourite dishes is enough to make one begin to salivate immediately. That is because the cuisine of our island just has that effect on anyone who samples our multifarious food delights. But more importantly, our interesting mix of peoples from many cultural backgrounds, has had an integral part to play in what we eat and how we prepare these dishes. I'm Chef Christopher and my mother Chef Sharon taught me how to cook at age 10 and her grandmother taught her age 10. I have been trained in the heritage art of preparing and cooking Traditional Caribbean Dishes. Just ponder for a moment, the effect on cuisine left by our ancestors or colonisers from Africa, Spain, France, England and Germany. Today, blending the tastes of these countries with Jamaican dishes is elegantly termed “fusion”, but it has evolved from centuries ago

Menu detail

Festival Winter Salad |
Small Plate
A Cool Refreshing Island Salad to begin the dinner
Jamaican Beef Patty
Small Plate
The Jamaican beef patty is a rectangle flaky yellow crust filled with ground beef shot through with onion, thyme and the inimitable heat and perfume of Scotch bonnet chili peppers. The patties are familiar to those on the East Coast and we are now bringing it to the Bay Area. Nothing can compare to the fresh, handcrafted patties we bake from scratch.
Sweet Potato Medley
Small Plate
This Caribbean Potato Salad is Creamy, Smooth and Complex.
The Braised Ox-tail
Small Plate
If you ask anyone who loves Jamaican food to pick his or her favorite. The Oxtail pushes its way to the top. A Traditional dish that everybody loves. The succulent Oxtail meat is marinated in a sauce that’s filled with loads of flavor and spices and will Melt in Your Mouth. There are many different ways of making this recipe throughout the Caribbean, but with Great Grandmother's recipe we have crafted a very special dish that will stay with you and leave you wanting more.
Spicy Steamed Cabbage
Small Plate
Cabbage is a chameleon that takes on many different flavors. Purple or Green, makes no difference. We have cooked it down here in a special blend of herbs and spices that will be sure to delight.
Traditional Jamaican Jerk Chicken
Small Plate
With its unique flavors & sensory overload aromas, The jerk pit grill is the ultimate Caribbean BBQ. All of our meats are marinated for 24 hours in homemade jerk marinade.
Coconut Milk Infused Rice & Peas
Small Plate
“The peas in this aren't really peas at all, but red beans. It is customary in the Caribbean to refer to beans as "peas". This recipe uses coconut milk, but the flavor is mild and not overpowering--just enough to give a hint of island flavor. *Served alongside Jerk Chicken*
Jamaican Jerk Pork Ribs
With its unique flavors & distinctive aromas, The Jerk Pork is the ultimate Caribbean BBQ. The meats are marinated for 24 hours prior to the dinner in homemade jerk marinade.
The Sunday Macaroni and Cheese Pie
Small Plate
In Jamaica we call it a Macaroni Pie but in America it is called Baked Macaroni & Cheese. The Beauty of this dish is that Macaroni Pies are never exactly the same. The twice cooked macaroni is drenched in egg & cheese and baked to a golden brown crisp. "Macaroni and Cheese Pie is a staple of all good Southern family dinners, church dinners and socials."
Grilled Pineapple with Homemade Ice-cream
Ice cream served on grilled pineapple sautéed in a special house sauce.
