(JTA) — Jamaica has its first kosher restaurant.

Kosher Hot Spot, run by Chabad of Jamaica, will serve the island nation’s famous jerk cooking in which meat is dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice.

The eatery, which opened last week, is located on Montego Bay’s “hip strip,” which is home to dozens of restaurants and shops. In addition to traditional Jamaican food, the restaurant will serve Israeli specials such as falafel.

The restaurant also sells Judaica and Jewish Jamaican souvenirs.

“We will feed your body and soul,” Rabbi Yaakov Raskin, co-director of Chabad of Jamaica, said in a statement.
