Todays Menu - 1/23/12
Today we have a change in menu for Lunch. Today we are serving: Jerk Chicken, Plantains and Braised Cabbage. Bon Appetit
Why is Jerk called Jerk?
There are many different theories regarding the term "jerk" which has to do with the process of spicing and grilling the meat. Some say that the word comes from the Spanish "charqui" (term for jerked or dried meat) or from the jerking and poking of the meat with a sharp object, thus producing holes which were filled with the spice preparation.
