RIR Pop-Up Cafe fetes the palates

Jamaica Gleaner - - FOOD -

THE RJR Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Group promised prospec­tive din­ers at the third stag­ing of the RJR Pop-Up Café two fun-filled days of good vibe, prizes and sur­prises and, of course, mouth­wa­ter­ing cui­sine, catered by Jac­qui Tyson. They did not dis­ap­point.

The aro­mas of the var­i­ous dishes — pas­tas, stew peas, ox­tail, ham, rice and peas — met din­ers as they en­tered their tents at the Lyn­d­hurst Road venue. With an invit­ing din­ing area, the ser­vice was just as pleas­ant as the aroma and, with­out much de­lay, pa­trons were able to en­joy the de­lec­ta­ble of­fer­ings.

Booths set up by Kremi and PriceS­mart of­fered sweet treats as pa­trons singed up and sam­pled re­spec­tively.

The well-stocked bar was not short on re­fresh­ments to en­dure the mid­day sun.

For those brave enough to an­swer ques­tions thrown out by the var­i­ous par­tic­i­pat­ing com­pa­nies, such as Ken­del and Span­ish Grain, they left the venue with pack­ages, courtesy of the com­pa­nies.
