Pepper’s Bar & Grill

The 1/2 BBJerk Chicken is a saucier version of your traditional jerk as they combine BBQ and Jerk spices. I found the 1/2 chicken to be a lot for one (especially after adding in sides), so instead I’d recommend ordering a 1/4 chicken and add on your choice of 1-2 sides. Here I opted for their crisp coleslaw and rice & beans.

Roadside jerk stands can be found across the island, but only Pepper’s provides authentic Caribbean flavours in an actual establishment. On the premises they have a jerk hut that cooks all of the jerk orders, as well as a kitchen pumping out an array of traditional and Caribbean-inspired dishes. Pepper’s has become a favourite among residents because of their well-executed Caribbean food, casual atmosphere and friendly staff. If you are looking for live music from local bands then swing by on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.

The Crispy Crab Wontons are a great appetiser to share (or not). They are stuffed with blue sea crab and cream cheese and a side of sweet and sour sauce.

Their famous Baked Crab Backs remind me of my mom’s because they are buttery and well seasoned. Definitely a fan favourite, though note they may or may not come in a crab shell.

The Whole Snapper can be cooked in a few ways, but we really enjoy the ‘Caribbean Steamed’ version. A whole snapper is steamed alongside okra, carrots, tomatoes, onions and scotch bonnet peppers.

One of their most popular dishes is the Famous BBQ Baby Back Ribs. They literally fall off the bone and their homemade BBQ sauce is to die for. Served with your choice of sides, so I went with their callaloo rice and sweet potato salad.

The Coconut Rundown is rich and saucy. Fresh mahi mahi is cooked down with veggies and coconut milk and served with your choice of sides. I think it goes well with their rice & beans and fried plantain.
