We started the evening with a few cocktail specials like this Lady Saw: Diplomatico Blanco rum, fresh lemon juice, house made apple and pomegrante syrup.

Roti and Dip: Spicy roti with your choice of jerk chicken, jerk veggie, curry chicken or curry veggie sauce. Ask for some Dahi yogurt sauce if it gets too heated. I personally prefer adding more spicy pepper sauce for some that extra kick!

Rib Platter $50: House seasoned BBQ Calabash ribs, jerk chicken, fried plantain, coleslaw, jerk fries, and seasonal veggies. We really liked the tender fall off the bones ribs.

Veggie Platter $40: Curried coconut confit potatoes, ginger plantain, spicy corn and chickpeas, mixed organic greens served with rice and seasonal veggies. I really liked the chickpeas and sweet corn mix. It is great for someone looking for a plant-base alternative or trying to avoid gluten.

Lastly, dessert! Coconut dumplings made with cornmeal flour, butter, brown sugar. Served with chocolate ganache and rum marinated fruits.
