Havana Bar and Grill, located on Elgin Street in the heart of Soho, recreates the mambo-dancing, cocktail-sipping untroubled days of Cuba and the Caribbean. As part of our Caribbean cooking series, Havana will take inspiration from the spice-garden island of Jamaica.
“Jerk” is a traditional Jamaican way seasoning grilled foods with various spices and the Jamaicans have perfected the art of “Jerking”. The spices that are used in Jerk are; chili pepper, allspice, thyme, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. These spices, along with garlic and onions are used to marinate the meat or fish for an exact period of time. When the marinade has added just the right flavor, the meat or fish is then cooked on a smoking grill. This is where the BIG Jerk flavors explode in a taste experience that can only be described as sensational.
During the entire month of April, you can visit Havana and experience our “BIG Jerk” promotion, where you will find five wonderfully prepared Jamaican Jerked dishes that represent the art of Jerk.
