Thousands of foodies flocked towards numerous Jamaican eateries during Restaurant Week 2010 (November 13-20) and Island Buzz was there to capture just a portion of the treats served up on the menus for your viewing pleasure. Jamaica is already well known for its own unique brand of spices and savory dishes but it might be a lesser known fact that the island is also home to a number of restaurants boasting cuisines ranging from Greek to Italian, Asian and Mediterranean.
It is for this purpose that once a year restauranteurs offer discounted meals to the public to introduce those who haven’t yet had the pleasure of tasting it to the many cuisines available on the island. We visited Gimbilyn Restaurant at Alhambra Inn in Kingston for a peek at a superb twist on classic Jamaican food. From there it was on to The Grog Shoppe at Devon House to meet up with local and international travel and food bloggers, radio personalities and print media journalists invited by the Jamaica Tourist Board just to sample the collection of scrumptious cuisine available during restaurant week.
Watch as we talk with Gale Peart of ‘My Elite Grocer‘, Jennifer Aranoff of ‘Cravings Magazine’ and Allan Borgen of the radio show ‘Let’s Dine Out‘ who tell us about their own personal experiences with the island’s diverse fare. From here, it’s on to Whitebones Seafood Restaurant for some delicious Surf ‘n’ Turf.
From vegetarian dishes to plates packed with meat Jamaica has it all. Unfortunately Restaurant Week won’t be around for another year but luckily these restaurants are open throughout the year. There’s no better time than the present to grab a bite in Jamaica.
