Jamaica’s First Kosher Restaurant Serves Spicy Jerk Cuisine

Chabad of Jamaica, directed by Rabbi Yaakov Raskin, has opened the island nation’s first kosher restaurant.

Kosher Hot Spot will serve the island nation’s famous jerk cooking in which meat is dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice.

The eatery, which opened last week, is located on Montego Bay’s “hip strip,” which is home to dozens of restaurants and shops. In addition to traditional Jamaican food, the restaurant will sell Israeli specials such as falafel, as well as Judaica and Jewish Jamaican souvenirs.
