Our Irie Menu


The menu for our soon to be opened location is now live. In a few weeks we will be opening the doors to our brand new location in Industry City, Brooklyn, and with a new restaurant comes a new menu, a better menu. With authentic island eats such as Jerk Chicken, Curry Goat, Jerk Chicken Salads, Oxtails and Natural Juices, our revamped menu will have you drooling and bringing you to the islands lounging under a Coconut Tree. This menu will also be introduced at our current Long Island City location next year after renovations are completed.

Get Out and Explore!

Jamaica is known for the sand, sea, and sun, therefore making it a perfect destination for a vacation or just a quick getaway. There is so much to do, you will never be bored or unoccupied. When making a trip to Jamaica, don’t just go to the touristy spots, enter into uncharted territory. The Blue Mountains, The Cockpit Country, the small community river where all the locals go on a Sunday evening, the farmer reaping watermelons, the jerk man on the hillside road, the shrimp woman in Middle Quarters, St. Elizabeth or the handcart man selling a whole island of fruits from his stall in Downtown Kingston. Travel should be about exploration not just a beach and delicately prepared hotel food. Travel should open up your eyes to different cultures, norms, societies, beliefs, and most of all, experiences.

So on your next trip to Jamaica, go out and explore. Make it an adventure!
