The Foodscapades: Usain Bolt: Tracks and Records

Anyone who knows me knows that I love food. LOVE! In the truest meaning of the word. Food is life.

But don’t mistake this said love to mean I’m easy to please. I’m still quite nit picky and I’m a stickler for taste and consistency, which brings us to this new category on the blog: the foodscapades. A word coined by me to describe the food adventures we’ll embark on. I’ll take you to restaurants with me and give you my honest opinion in the following categories:

  1. Taste
  2. Price
  3. Customer service

So let’s kick things off with our first ever restaurant review!

Tracks and Records

Located in Jamaica’s capital city it was abuzz with activity as I got there. I had no issues being seated however. Already I was impressed. Then I was fortunate enough to be seated in what used to be the vip area on the second floor overlooking the rest of the restaurant, a delightful view.

My picture is not quite doing it justice but you can see what I mean. A little.

My friends and I were promptly and pleasantly greeted. Shoutout to Tricia! We were happy.

So now on to the meat of the matter:

Taste

I ordered the Jerk Platter which allowed me to have a go at their styling of jerk pork and jerk chicken with the signature sides of festival and bread. The meats were pretty bland for me. Not nearly as spicy as I’d like as traditional jerk is. But if you aren’t a fan of spicy food it would be perfect for you.

Price

The price was JMD$1300 which is comparable to similar restaurants. No complaints here on the price.

Customer service

The wait for food was about 20 minutes but I won’t complain about that since it was a busy, Saturday night. We had our complimentary water and conversation so we barely noticed the time. The ambiance and music helped too. I was very relaxed. There were no interruptions during my meal and I didn’t feel pressured to leave the table despite it being a busy night.

Customer service=8/10

All in all Tracks and Records did not disappoint. If you like a little bit of alcohol, the bar is there for you, be sure to request the cocktail menu and check out for your choice of liquor. That’s all for this review.

Let me know if you decide to visit Tracks and Records or if you have already visited feel free to comment and tell me your experience while there.
