Foodscapades: Jamaica Liquor Warehouse

It was my second visit and it was consistent with my first experience, absolutely decadent! This time it was date night and although the company was different everything else was the same. Same cozy setting, same positively delectable meal.

Situated just across from Macau Restaurant and Gaming Lounge, another restaurant I’ve briefly reviewed on the blog for its well-priced meal options. Jamaica Liquor Warehouse however is the cozier, more romantic alternative. While nowhere near as spacious as Macau, Liquor Warehouse is perfect for private breakfasts/lunches or dinner dates or even business lunches where you’re not likely to be disturbed.

Ok so if you’re not already sold on trying out this food spot let’s dissect Jamaica Liquor Warehouse in our usual fashion.

  1. Taste
  2. Price
  3. Customer Service

Let’s go!

Unfortunately in my excitement I forgot to snap pictures of the restaurant, the menu and my appetizer but hopefully the pictures I did take will be enough to persuade you. Now to the meat of the matter, taste:

Deciding what to order was incredibly difficult because there were so many deserving options. So much to choose from that I was sure would be equally tasty but inevitably I had to choose what my stomach was craving the most and would be most filling. I was quite hungry. When I finally ordered I chose the Warehouse Burger as my entrée and I had Ackee Wontons with a Saltfish dip. The  Warehouse Burger featured sesame covered buns, lettuce, tomatoes, one fried egg (I opted for it to be well done)and a thick beef patty and was served with a side of fries (the most delicious fries I’ve had in a long time).

Let’s bite in, the Ackee Wontons with a Saltfish dip were my appetizer of choice and a first for me. I’ve been seeing it on the Jamaica Liquor Warehouse’s Instagram and I decided I had to try it and I had no regrets. It was a delicious, deep fried dumpling stuffed with ackee which was yummy on it’s on its own but paired with the saltfish dip there was an explosion of flavour in your mouth. I was excited for this interesting take on Jamaica’s national dish, you see Ackee and saltfish is typically boiled and stir fried together along with onions and peppers and served with rice or yams, boiled bananas or dumplings. Whatever you choose. Jamaica Liquor Warehouse gets an A+ for that appetizer.

Price

As a millennial on a budget Jamaica Liquor Warehouse is definitely on the higher end of the spectrum for our dining spend. Truthfully, the meals are appropriately priced because the meals are stuffing and very palatable. The meals are worth every dollar but I have to let you know that the tax and service charge is about 15% of the cost of your meal so don’t be surprised when you see your bill.

Customer Service

Now customer service was satisfactory. You’ll be greeted and the wait for your meal isn’t too long. I didn’t get my server’s name this time but she served us well.

All in all Jamaica Liquor Warehouse is a lovely restaurant to dine at. It gets all 5 stars from me. Let me know if you ever decide to try them.

I know that there is nothing better for men than to rejoice and do good while they live, 13and also that every man should eat and drink and findsatisfaction in all his labor— this is the gift of God. Ecclesiates 3:12-13

Happy eating and stay blessed!
