Jamaican Inspired, American Made.

We do classic Jamaican jerk favorites in our own unique way.

We're a pop-up food truck without the truck, slingin' smoked Jamaican jerk chicken and pork with New England vegetables. We're servin' it up all summer long at farmers markets and special locations around Boston.

Our Story

Wagwan Jerk Bar is a pop-up food startup dedicated to celebrating the flavors of Jamaica and the West Indies. We grill and smoke up classic jerk favorites with our own modern American twist. We believe in crazy-flavorful food made from honest ingredients, served quickly with a touch of flare. 

We're two brothers who were inspired by the flavors found in the Jamaican neighborhoods of New York City, where we both went to college. After spending a winter in the Caribbean and exploring the local jerk scene we decided to bring the powerful flavor of allspice and pimento wood smoked meat to our hometown of Boston. 

Our goal is to serve food that we want to eat at on a daily basis. That means high-quality ingredients, healthy options like chicken, avocados, and sweet potatoes, enticing flavors, and plenty of food to fill us up!

Thank you for stopping by! We appreciate the support we have received at farmers markets and from all the great shoutouts on social media.

We hope you enjoy what we're cooking up.
