Allen, jolly proprietor of Xaymaca, is closing the doors of his long running Jamaican bar and restaurant on Dec. 31. Allen opened Xaymaca sixteen years ago in Fujisaki and then moved to Oyafuko-dori in 2008. Famous for authentic Jamaican foods such as Lamb Curry, Jerk Chicken, and Jamaican Ackee Salt Fish, Xaymaca will be dearly missed as the best place to savor Caribbean flavors in Fukuoka.
So, whether you’re an old fan or yet to have checked it out, hurry on and give Allen a visit, sip a smooth rum and chill to the reggae beats before Dec. 31. Best of luck to Allen! We suspect he’ll be back on the scene – we just hope that isn’t too long.
