Harajuku goes Jamaican


Thursday, April 08, 2010


Yvonne Goldson left her post at an international law firm for the
kitchen of her new JamRock Café -- Tokyo's newest outpost for
authentic Jamaican cuisine located in the heart of Harajuku.

Goldson, the author of The Patois Handbook: Let's Speak Jamaican!
-- a Jamaican-Japanese dictionary and best-seller in its tenth
edition since first being published in 1998-- spoke about her
latest venture in an interview with the Time Out Tokyo Newsletter,
publised in late February.


Jamaica's national dish, ackee and salt fish, is one of the
many offerings available at the JamRock Café.

Yvonne, a pioneer member of the Association of Jamaicans in
Japan, envisions JamRock Café as the home-away-from-home where
Tokyoites and Jamaicans can get together to eat authentic
Jamaican food without having to catch a flight out of Narita Airport.

The Trelawny native has lived in Japan for the last 12 years, after
arriving to find a publisher for her book. She ultimately stayed
to oversee the editing. Her handbook has been successful in
bridging the gap of making patois more accessible to Japanese
interested in Jamaican culture, especially the ubiquitous topic:
food. The dictionary covers Jamaican food, fruits, beverages and
desserts that are on the menu at JamRock Café.

Goldson's menu choices focus on home-style Jamaican dishes.

"People have this idea that all we eat in Jamaica is jerk chicken,
but we don't really make that at home -- that's more of a street
food." A look at the menu shows a cross section of Jamaican home-style favourites, including ackee and saltfish ready to be enjoyed.

Ordering a meal in patois at JamRock Café is one of the charms
of going there, especially speaking with Kanto, the Japanese
server who has a very convincing Jamaican accent.

Goldson was inspired to start her business by her former boss
after he sampled her food. She met her head chef, a
Rastafarian called Twitch, at the popular Jamaican One Love
Reggae Festival in Yoyogi Park, and the duo collaborate on
JamRock's menu and catering.
