There seems to be no stopping Jamaican cuisine recently. Following a couple of major restaurant openings in central London, now Boisdale’s of Canary Wharf is serving the food of Jamaica on their terrace throughout the summer. The pop-up is in partnership with the Jamaican Tourist Board, and is seen as so important it was launched by the Jamaican High Commissioner this week.
Boisdale of Canary wharf is traditionally a British restaurant with a good menu of steaks and seafood, yet it’s all change for the terrace this summer. Try a dish from a range of contemporary Jamaican dishes, or play it safe with Jamaican Jerk BBQ, which is sure to be popular, alongside dishes incorporating spicy, flavourful jerk sauce. Fish will also be key, and the traditional Jamaican dish of saltfish will be on the menu.
Boisdale mixologists have been turning heads with their take on a traditional Jamaican rum punch, which has been specially created for the summer terrace, and a range of other cocktails are available in partnership with Appleton Rum.
But only half of the draw is the food and drink. Guests will be immersed within tropical plantations and swaying palms on the terrace, and live DJs will keep the party going until late.
