A note about serious food allergies

We know what you're thinking, but we're not calling you, or salmon, any rude names. Nor are we referring to any 60s dance moves or a late 70s Steve Martin movie. The jerk here is the spicy, smoky flavors of Jamaica, best known for making a delicious culinary magic on chicken. It's mouthwateringly enchanting on this delicate salmon and paired with the tangy lime of the mango slaw, makes every bite here worth savoring. It's a jerk move not to share, but you'll be tempted to finish both plates yourself.
