Tell us about the nature of the event, the atmosphere you’re trying to achieve, the date and time

After you’ve submitted a catering request, one of our staff members will contact you via phone

we recommend a phone call.

We offer both pickup and delivery options. Whether you know exactly what you want or you’re

Our Catering Menu

Our menu encompasses practically every area of traditional Jamaican cuisine from classic

breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes to refreshing beverages, soups, and porridge. It’s a unique,

diverse, and deliciously authentic selection. This is a brief overview of each menu category. For

catering.

Breakfast

Saltfish is a classic Jamaican staple; you’ll see it in many of the dishes we offer. Our breakfast

menu features saltfish with a variety of sides, including okra, callaloo, and ackee. We also serve

tender breakfast-style liver.

Each breakfast meal is complemented with plantains, bell peppers, and onions. To cater

breakfast through THE DUTCH POT JAMAICAN RESTAURANT, you’ll likely want to order a

variety so that your guests can mix and match the sides they prefer.

Lunch & Dinner

Lunch and dinner items are served interchangeably. Each of these meals primarily consists of a

portion of meat accompanied by two or three sides. We make goat, fish, chicken, pork, and

beef, each in a variety of mouth-watering ways.

If you’d like to cater chicken, choose from our brown stew, barbeque, fry, jerk, and curry chicken

options. If you’d like to try fish prepared the Jamaican way, choose the escovitch or brown stew

fish. From curry goat and oxtails to jerk pork and cowfoot, we have exotic, memorable entrées

that are sure to satisfy your guests.

Soup & Porridge

Jamaican soup is a hearty way to sample some beloved island flavors. It’s also closely tied to

our restaurant’s name and the culinary heritage of cooking in a Dutch pot! To give our customers

a taste of our best tropical cooking, we prepare a different soup each day of the week:

  • Monday: Chicken
  • Tuesday: Gungo
  • Wednesday: Red Peas

If you’d like to order a specific variety of soups, talk with one of our catering specialists. They will

of the week:

  • Monday: Cornmeal
  • Tuesday: Oatmeal
  • Wednesday: Plantain
  • Thursday: Strong back
  • Friday: Bulga
  • Saturday: Hominy

Beverages & Pastries

If you’re going to have Jamaican food catered to your event, complementing it with tropical

beverages and heavenly pastries is a must! We offer Jamaican favorites, including coconut

water, pineapple ginger juice, sorrel, and grape passion fruit juice. They’ll be a fantastic way to

wash down each flavorful bite of your entrées.

We have several sweet and savory pastries, including fried dumplings and coconut drops, to

add an extra flair to your meal. Serve them before or after the main course to give your guests a

full sampling experience.
