Jonkanoo - Sydney

What is Jonkanoo?
Pronounced 'John Canoe', alternative spelling: Junkanoo or Jankunu, is a Caribbean street parade or carnival, found in local variants all over the region, from the Bahamas and Jamaica to Belize and Venezuela.

We named our joint ‘Jonkanoo’ to represent the unique cultural makeup and bright, captivating vibe of the Caribbean, shining through in its people, music, dance and, of course, its food and drink.

From our colonial era inspired decor and the selection of dishes and cocktails, to the music played on our speakers and the atmosphere our staff create, we strive to bring you the highest quality of authentic West Indian experience in a relaxed and cosy environment.

Drawing its influences from Native American, West African, European and East Indian roots, the cuisine of the Caribbean is a unique mix, a callaloo, a melting pot of flavours, spices and colours, no words can describe it adequately, so you’ll have to experience it for yourself!

On our ever-changing menu, we offer smaller dishes like the legendary Trinidadian street food doubles, tangy soused mackerel from the Bahamas and delicious Haitian griot pork amongst others.

For those with a larger appetite, we offer ‘bigga tings’, like the Caribbean classic curry goat, the ever-popular escovitch fish or the delicious grilled king prawns with black pepper, lime & a healthy dose of rum.

Marinated for a minimum of two days in chef Damion Brown’s secret family recipe sauce, and slowly cooked to perfection in his custom-made smoker, the jerk chicken and jerk pork have become Jonkanoo favourites in just a few weeks.

No Caribbean meal is complete without hearty side dishes like the slightly coconut-flavoured rice n peas, steamed green beans or crispy sweet potato.

To complete your West Indian feast, why not sample a French Caribbean dessert like our pain au beurre et chocolat or our spiced ginger cake with crumble, chodo & ginger syrup.
