Char·qui [chahr-kee] is the Spanish pronunciation of an indigenous Quecha word for cured meat and it is from where we get our word jerky. The use of charqui spread throughout Latin America and the Caribbean and spawned a multitude of local dishes. In the Caribbean the sauces used for charqui were adapted for cooking on an open grill by adding pimento berries, also known as all spice. In our restaurant we have refined this sauce to use on our grilled food. We welcome you to enjoy the flavors of the fire and spices.
