This appetizing Rosemary Citrus Pork Chops is included on Pier One's special Restaurant Week menu.

There is a lot to enjoy from a dining experience at the Pier One restaurant in Montego Bay. From its tranquil seaside ambience, to its mouth-watering cuisine, dining in comfort takes on added satisfaction here.

Pier One does not utilise any powdered seasonings in its food preparation. Instead, head chef Clinton Bullings told Food, that he depends on a trusted selection of fresh herbs to add flavour to the wide variety of delectable dishes served.

"We don't use any powdered seasonings in our food and we are also afraid of salt here. I always say to my cooks, be careful with the salt because you can always put it in, but you can never take it out. It is very important to us that our meals are as healthy as they are delicious," he said.

So what herbs are responsible for Pier One's scrumptious taste? Rosemary, ginger, onion, and garlic are what Bullings calls his most-trusted ingredients and in effect what he uses to season almost every dish.

For the Gleaner-sponsored Restaurant Week, a shrimp and scallop scampi and rosemary citrus pork chops are among two of the menu items to be featured on Pier One's specially discounted menu options. Sides vary between French fries, garlic bread, baked potato, salad, rice and peas, bammy and steamed vegetables. Be sure to pack a strong appetite as meals here are as filling as they are delicious.
