New! Little Jamaica's Blog!

Every once in a while, people crave dishes that aren’t native to their own homes. Dishes from far and wide with those wonderful tastes that weren’t invented at home. Here in the Netherlands, there is a widespread craving for African, Asian and Caribbean dishes. Some cuisines have stood out because of how they prepare their food and for blowing minds with tasty and delicious dishes.

One of such food cuisines is Haarlem’s Little Jamaica.


Little Jamaica serves an impressive selection of delicacies from the Caribbean. Delicacies like hearty and delicious Caribbean patties as well as Jamaican jerk dishes. The chef and owner, Joy isn’t only one of the best when it comes to Jamaican cuisine, she also shares her passion for Caribbean food through her cuisine and food paradise Little Jamaica.


Although, Little Jamaica doesn’t have a physical restaurant, the cuisine is located in the beautiful city of Haarlem and is well on the way to becoming your new favourite food cuisine - Little Jamaica. With more sales on Thuisbezorgd, (UberEats and others) than one can count and customers constantly calling to place their orders, this haven of Jamaican food is definitely something worth discovering (for those of you who haven’t given it a try yet). 


While lots of people in neighbouring town like Bloemendaal, Zandvoort, etc. are still catching up to the hype around this exotic cuisine, once you’ve tasted either the patties or the Jerk chicken, you immediately get hooked and just can’t get enough! Little Jamaica is steadily winning the race in spreading the Jamaican love all around Haarlem, Zandvoort, Bloemendal, Amsterdam, The Hague, Leiden and many more neighbouring towns and cities. The idea is to give you that feeling of Jamaica through wonderful and delicious food.


The food at Little Jamaica gives you the feeling that you’re right there chilling in Montego Bay, enjoying some drinks and eating patties and Jerk chicken. The food is like magic — it turns wherever you are into a “Little Jamaica”. It is a cuisine that can be recommended and an asset to the city of Haarlem. So if you happen to be on Thuisbezorgd, UberEats and other websites of the same kind, look up Little Jamaica and order as much as you want. Don’t forget to go through the website, place your orders and check out the Facebook page for all current information on the menu and the cuisine.

    If you like real Jamaican food and miss the taste of home, little Jamaica, is the closest you will get to achieving that... I have tried many of the menus and haven't been disappointed... Taste is good, price is affordable, friendly service and the portion is more than enough... I definitely will be ordering on a regular basis!!!!

    I had a lovely time, it felt like private dinner. Really appreciate the service and the hospitality. Food was 34/10. Joyce and Albert are both wonderful people. I would highly recommend.
