Jamaya Opens in Touchwood Solihull
After years of experiencing the Caribbean culture through family stories and delicious cooking, founder, Byron set off to explore sunny Jamrock on his own… and you know how it is with Jamaica, the colours, music and outrageous carnival culture is somewhat contagious. So contagious that Byron brought it back with him, on his return to the UK. So, with a love for Jamaica and his daughter ‘Maya’, Jamaya was born. And here we are now, spreading the party spirit with every adventurous foodie we meet.
Today sees the opening of the new Jamaya in Touchwood Shopping Centre. Whether you’re a connoisseur of the Jam Rock, or a jerk-chicken-novice; there’s something for everyone at Jamaya. With decor as vibrant as the colours on the Jamaican flag, they celebrate the authentic taste of home with proper jerk chicken and Jamaican fried chicken against the sound of Marley’s beats.
What’s really hot about Jamaya is their jerk-tastic marination process. From sourcing the finest, freshest chicken to leaving you licking your fingers after every fiery mouthful, they’ve dedicated themselves to bringing back “real Jerk” to the UK.
The Juice on Jerk: Jerk is a combination of culture, slow cooking and flavours that really pack-a-punch. The slow-smoke method is actually an age-old Caribbean practice, but by rubbing meats and vegetables with the right seasonings and slow-grilling them, jerked foods have a mouth-watering spicy-sweet flavour and a tender texture that is unmatched.
The Jamaya process guarantees happy faces and full bellies every time!
Enjoy dishes such as buffalo chicken wings fried in Jamaya’s special recipe coating and tossed in jerk sauce, Ja-mac-n Cheese, classic Jamaican patties. Bob Marley burgers and Reggae Rios chicken fillet. You can also enjoy Irie Jerk subs, Jamaican roti and jackfruit roti. Plus classic sides such as sweet potato fries, cassava chips, rice and peas, corn on the cob, fried plantains and festivals (Caribbean dumplings).
