Sure, snow is already starting to appear on the mountaintops and east benches, but we’ve recently discovered a way to hold onto summer’s sunshine for a while longer. Just a dash from SLC, Park City’s 11Hauz is cooking up the freshest, most authentic Jamaican we’ve yet to find stateside. Owned by Jamaican transplants Sheron and Errol Grant and their three daughters, this place is to-the-brim with good vibes and even better spices.
Jerk wings, coconut white rice, and plantains?
We’re feeling warmer already.
Having grown up in Jamaica, Sheron learned to cook from her grandmother Florence, who worked seven days a week as a chef, yet still always managed to make it home to cook for her household of 11 after her shift. Luckily for us, she picked up Florence’s time-honored tips, tricks, and spices, and brought them to the Park Silly Market. After slinging their goods to the masses for four years, the Grants finally decided to nab their own brick and mortar and set up shop. We popped by on a chilly fall day not so long ago, and what started as an outing to sample a few dishes quickly turned into us filling our bellies to capacity with round after round of family style perfection. Each dish that passed before us was more scrumptious than the last (even the kale is an explosion of flavor—a true testament to a master chef). The vegan selections are to die for, but so are the beef patties and the chicken. 11Hauz is all about family cooking, and they do it to perfection. Perhaps it’s the “made with love” element, maybe it’s a secret sauce—either way, we left lunch thoroughly stuffed and bursting at the seams with sunshine.
