If you are a fish lover and looking to experience seafood magic at its best, pack your appetite and head over to the Chill Out Hut in Greenwood, St James, where chef Ingrid Rowe-Morgan guarantees you both a savoury experience.

Throughout the Gleaner-sponsored Restaurant Week (RW), fish done anyway you like - deep fried and escovitched, steamed or even roasted will be on special, accompanied by sides which include bammy, rice and peas and French fries.

Rowe-Morgan, who is affectionately called 'Madda' by her team members, explained the reason for the Chill Out Hut's popularity as Montego Bay's go-to fish spot.

"We cook all our food using the basic ingredients of scallion, thyme, garlic and onion, along with salt and pepper. Those are my constant kitchen companions; but the defining ingredient for us is love. We cook all our food with love," she said.

The restaurant's famed barbecue ribs and parmesan chicken combo, along with several other menu items will also be on special.

Rowe-Morgan revealed that she was in fact a seamstress before launching her professional food career, which she said came about after her quest to find good-tasting and affordable cuisine in the Second City proved futile.

"I started becoming concerned about what persons were eating because I could not get any good-tasting food to buy at the local restaurants in Montego Bay. I just knew I could do better, and 10 years later, I'm still here doing what I love," she said.
