. . . and why not ? Great food, great Company and great conversation is what Menu Guide (MG) is all about, and who better to share with than one of the rock’s (Jamaica) and the world’s Olympians and 4th fastest 100m Track and Field Star, and affirmed “hot bod” model (Check out his sizzling 2016 Calendar), Asafa Powell!
MG: Asafa, great to have you at the Menu Guide table. Please dish the stew on your favourite foods.
Asafa: My favourite foods are the dishes I grew up on. The ones my mother made for our family and to this day I still love them. . . . Mama’s Red Peas Soup on a Saturday, mmmm! I also love Jerk Chicken with Rice and Peas and Curry Goat gravy, or Fried Chicken with Chips (I don’t eat that so much anymore, as I do my best to stay away from fried foods when training).
MG: You’ve travelled the world . . . who in the world gets a toast for the best dining experience?
Asafa: My best dining experience, hmmm, I would have to say one of the best I just had was a few months ago in a restaurant in Croatia. They brought everything to the table fresh and we chose the cut of meat, the fish etc and then chose the way we wanted it prepared. It was a great vibe and the food was excellent as well.
MG: And which Jamaican Eatery or Restaurant gets your “Big-Up” ?
Asafa: When I go out to eat in Jamaica I pretty much stick to more traditional foods and restaurants. I love chicken, seafood, beef, pork and pasta … so I usually tend to go to spots that have those options and do them well like M10, Countryside, Strawberry Hill and CPJ Deli.
Bon Apetit Asafa ! We look forward to having your company with us all year ‘round with your yummy 2016 Calendar, available at FLOW Stores and online, at Amazon.com. The Calendar features Asafa at some of Jamaica’s most beautiful, famous and historic sites.
