Rice and Peas: A Jamaican Classic

Come enjoy Rice and Peas: A Jamaican Classic at our restaurent on Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok, Thailand.

Rice and peas is a popular Jamaican dish that is enjoyed all over the world. It is a staple in Jamaican cuisine and is served with a variety of meats and vegetables. The dish has a rich history that dates back to the time when Jamaica was a British colony.

The dish was originally made with pigeon peas, which were brought to Jamaica by African slaves. However, over time, kidney beans became the preferred choice of peas for the dish. The dish is traditionally served on Sundays and on special occasions such as weddings and funerals.

Here is a classic recipe for Jamaican rice and peas:

- 2 cups of long-grain rice
- 2 cups of coconut milk
- 2 cups of water
- 1 can of kidney beans (drained)
- 1 onion (chopped)
- 2 garlic cloves (chopped)
- 2 sprigs of thyme
- 2 scallions (chopped)
- Salt and pepper to taste

1. Rinse the rice in cold water until the water runs clear.
2. In a large pot, combine the rice, coconut milk, water, kidney beans, onion, garlic, thyme, and scallions.
3. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and cover.
4. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed.
5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

"We visited this restaurant over the weekend and it did not disappoint. We ordered the, Curried Chicken, Jerk Chicken, Escavitch Fish, and Mixed Vegetables. Later, the chef came out and gave us a complimentary Curried Goat dish. Wow! The servings were huge. There was only 2 of us but this meal could’ve easily fed 4 people. We ended up doing take-away. We would definitely return and order less next time, but everything was delicious! For more travel adventures, tips and reviews, follow us: @adventureswhileblack on IG, FB, and YT"
