We are re-opening on Monday, April 29th! Our new location will be at 56 East Main Street in Somerville.
Mention Jamaica and foreigners think Bob Marley, reggae music and jerk cooking. Jerk cooking is done when a charcoal fire is made in a pit in the ground and small planks of green aromatic pimento wood are placed on top of the hot coals to form a crude grill. The highly seasoned meat is stretched across this wooden grill in large slabs covered with a top layer of wood and left to cook slowly. The "real" jerk taste comes from a combination of the blend of seasonings used, the effect of the smoke created by the twin layers of green pimento wood and slow method of cooking.
