A meal at Pimento Jamaican Kitchen feels like a visit with your bubbly best friend. That’s not just because there are bright yellow walls, but also because you’re greeted with genuine warmth from the staff. The counter-service menu lets you build a meal with a couple protein options or curry vegetables, coconut rice and beans, sweet fried plantains, slaw, and a choice of sauce. 

Try the braised oxtail with the Kingston Kick sauce if you just need to feel something during the Minneapolis winter, or the MN Nice sauce if you’re looking for a flavorful, medium-heat level hot sauce that won’t require any milk to cool things down. They have a garage door that opens onto Nicollet Avenue, along with an adjacent bar that has an impressive selection of Jamaican rum and a dancehall music night on Fridays.
