Welcome to Jamrock: where the air is crisp and clear, the people are friendly and the cuisine is the most flavorful of the Caribbean and by large, the world.

Over the years, the consistent review at UBTR is that the jerk is ‘fulla flava’ and spice. The blend of jerk seasonings and smoke from the pimento wood allows everyone to enjoy the great taste of traditional jerk without too much spice.

Jamaican twist

Putting a Jamaican twist on Mexican, Italian, American and Chinese food, you name it, UBTR has jerked it! And since the menu usually caters to a wide demographic with Jamaican and international fusion dishes, the culinary team decided to pay homage to ‘yard’, kicking off the Str8 Jerk menu on Independence Day.

The menu features 11 mouthwatering dishes, all jerk infused. Some are traditional, like the crowd– pleasing jerk chicken. Others boast jerk with a twist, such as jerk honey mustard lamb. Str8 Jerk also include jerk pork, jerk shrimp, jerk chicken spring rolls, jerk chicken quesadillas, jerk buffalo wings and more. With diverse options at your fingertips, you can be sure to get your jerk fix anytime.

The secret lies in the seasonings, spices and cooking style, which all combine to create that unique Jamaican flavour.
