Jamaica Jammin @ Lexys Secret Service

July 12, 2013

What strange culinary voodoo has Lexy wrought? A Jamaican-themed supper club hosted by witchy-woman cook Lex Subramaniam brought a bit of Kingston to Kuala Lumpur this month, leaving guests in a Caribbean state of stomach.

Jerks seem most welcome here, of the spice-rubbed chicken-wing variety, of course.

 Curry goat with pumpkin, almost deliciously surreal enough to have us pattering in Patois.

Suck em marrow outta em bones, honey chile. Theyll keep you safe n sound.

Jamaicas informal national dish, Rice & Peas, nicknamed Coat of Arms, a Sunday lunch staple for island inhabitants. Rice stewed with coconut milk & kidney beans.

Spicy coleslaw & roti breads cast a satisfying spell on our stuffed stomachs.

Banana fritters, avocado mango salsa & lemon compote: its a deluge of delights.

Creamy coconut rice pudding. A little bit, just enough, just right.

Lulled by hypnotic reggae beats & copious booze that included rum cocktails & homemade chocolate vodka, we could happily have slept over at Sentuls FHL Sports biking store, the home of Lexys supper clubs.

This theme isnt random; Lexy spent time in Brixton, absorbing the London districts Jamaican influences sufficiently to recreate the flavors & textures of this gastronomic exotica.
