En route to downtown Harrisburg in search of a few more venues for this year’s Experience Harrisburg Job and Internship Fair, I noticed during my casual drive that the shop next door to Garden Vietnamese Restaurant that used to be a soul food restaurant before going out of business had a bit of activity going on inside. Upon a closer look I also noticed that the front window had a different name on the glass complete with a Jamaican flag. Needless to say, I slammed on the breaks, pulled a 180, and beat out a police cruiser for the last space along the sidewalk in front of the store to try the place out. Well, not really, but I did stop in and check the place out after I finished talking to a few business owners downtown about hosting employers for the job fair.

I can’t say I know what Jameans With Papine actually means but after grabbing a menu (click on images below)  and a quick look around the shop I’ll make sure to ask the owner tomorrow when I return for lunch. It’s pretty nice inside, just a few tables, an electric jukebox and pool table downstairs with the kitchen upstairs. I can’t vouch for the food yet, but any new restaurant is worth trying twice in my opinion. I’m especially curious about this place as there is already a Jamaican Buffet just a few blocks down 3rd Street called Ventura House. Is this city big enough to have two Jamaican eateries in addition to a great Caribbean food stand in the Broad Street Market? I suppose time will tell, but personally I can’t wait to give Jameans With Papine a first taste.
