Hi all,

Inspired by these guys, I thought it would be good to check out this Jamaican place.

http://www.clarkes.ch/

As rightly pointed out in the above thread, it is a take away place, so the plan is to pick up some food and then we can sit somewhere (suggestions welcome, we can decide on Thursday) and eat our yummy food.

Who is in? See you in front of the place on Thursday at noon!

@Coconut - absolutely! come along with the kids!

@Prof. - my phone has been ringing incessantly since 7am this morning with wedding-related stuff from my crazy family, so If I didn't have to work I MIGHT have started drinking well before 2pm

Re: A Taste of Jamaica - Lunch in Zurich

Thank you to everyone who made it - including the very cute kids (note: referring here in particular to the little kids, not the "grown-up" kids)

Jokes aside, it was great to see all of you and meet new people. Have a great weekend and week, and I am looking forward to seeing you at the comedy night.

By the way...to everyone else on EF - the place is awesome: nice owners/workers, cheap, and delicious food. Highly recommended. But plan on taking a nap afterwards, I had to have 2 teas to be able to get back to work and stay awake!

Re: A Taste of Jamaica - Lunch in Zurich

As said by Federica the place is really nice, small for my ginormus stroller, but we manage to fit it in Great food, and really cheap. I only payed 12fr for a full portion and drink
I'm sorry for the staring but couldnt help try to figure out who is who. Anyways I could only find out about Federica (bunch of guys, one girl)
My 2 boys were also happy, but couldnt taste the food as it was a bit spicey (for babys)

Looking forward for the next event.
