A food truck specializing in Jamaican dishes will open a brick-and-mortar restaurant in Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood. Jamaica Mi Hungry — which also operates a seasonal restaurant at a New Hampshire beach and a temporary kiosk in Cambridge’s Kendall Square — will take over the former Mooyah Burgers, Fries & Shakes restaurant at 225 Centre St. in the Jackson Square area of Jamaica Plain.
Founded in 2012 by chef Ernie Campbell as a private chef operation and catering company, Jamaica Mi Hungry added a food truck in 2015 and its seasonal beach restaurant in 2016. The company focuses on dishes like curry goat, beef patties, jerk tofu, roasted vegetables, mac and cheese, and sweet plantains, among other items.
Campbell has not yet shared an opening date for the Jamaica Plain restaurant, but Eater has reached out for further details on the timeline and the forthcoming menu and will provide any updates as new information becomes available.
