Description Will you quench me when I'm thirsty Will you cool me down when I am hot Your recipe darlin' is so tasty And you sure can stir my pot So stir it up little darling, stir it up Come on and stir it up little darlin' - Stir it up - Bob Marley 1972 Trenchtown is the latest addition to Observatory's bustling restaurant and bar scene, and is part of the Banana Jam Café group. Trenchtown owes its name to the poor neighbourhood in Kingston, Jamaica, where Bob Marley spent much of his youth. Joe Higgs, the father of reggae, held informal classes in Trenchtown for young singers, among them Bob Marley. While Jamaica is synonymous with reggae music, many people are unaware of its incredible cuisine. This Caribbean eatery offers homestyle Jamaican dishes such as Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Chicken and Chorizo Jambalaya, Feta Prawn Pasta, Reggae Rice and Coconut Chicken Curry. The menu also offers a wide selection of gourmet burgers, pizza and salads.This 200-seater restaurant has a regular line up of live music acts and in the summer months the traditional Jamaican BBQs are a must. The sunny garden area with its swaying palms and hibiscus flowers offers customers a relaxed Caribbean beach bar atmosphere. In addition, sports fans are well catered for, with four plasma screen TVs and a 3m x 2m big screen in the garden. Trenchtown is fully licensed and during the cocktail happy hour - which runs between 5pm and 6pm every day - selected cocktails are R16 each. Customer favourites include the Mango Margarita, Pina Colada, Green Iguana, Hurricane and Rum Runner.All of the above makes this an ideal location for functions, and Trenchtown caters for them all. Whether corporate, for a birthday or simply for a special occasion, this tropical setting proves to be a great meeting place for all. Location/Address/Phone No./Fax No.
