PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
They say it’s going to be the next Mexican… Jamaican cuisine, that is. I’m intrigued but not convinced, yet. The Drink & Dine Group have applied their tried and tested restaurant/pub formula to The Forresters, transforming upstairs into the Caribbean-themed restaurant Queenies. In classic Drink & Dine style, the fitout at Queenies is over the top but not in a bad way. There’s a straw-thatched ceiling, wooden floorboards and photos of former Miss Jamaica contestants lining the walls.

It’s sometimes hard to take the menu seriously, especially with themes such as the “Bob Marley Chowdown” and “Wake and Bake” but don’t be deterred. Here, it’s all about the jerk chicken and it certainly doesn't disappoint. A sure-fire crowd-pleaser, rich and spiced chicken pieces are cooked to a smoky barbecuedness, coupled with some sweet potato chips, it’s 10/10 for tastiness. Beyond jerk, the menu delivers some Jamaican classics like BBQ corn and dirty rice, with a twist plus a few random additions like vego curry puffs thrown in for good measure.

At Queenies, you’re not going to be blown away by the food but you won’t be disappointed either. Here, the atmosphere is just as important as the food and drinks but what’s wrong with that? There’s more to a good night than the food.
