Jamaica Pon Di Road

Our Story

Hailing from Clarendon, Jamaica, Gareth Powell, affectionately known as Chef G, inherited the art of West Indian cooking from his grandmother, Ms. May. Inspired by his roots, he pursued culinary and hospitality training at the renowned Runaway Bay Training Institute on Jamaica's Northern coast.

After honing his skills in esteemed establishments like Sandals- Royal Plantation, Grand Lido Braco, and Riu Hotel, Chef G's passion unexpectedly transformed into a flourishing family business.

In 2016, propelled by his love for Caribbean culture and Jamaican flavors, Chef G brought his culinary expertise to Houston's streets with Jamaica Pon Di Road Street Kitchen—a food truck offering a tantalizing taste of island paradise. A genuine family venture, Chef G worked his magic in the kitchen while his family managed the logistics, nurturing a community of local foodie fans.

As the wheels turned, the food truck became a local sensation, attracting crowds with its fusion of traditional and modern dishes and Chef G's warm spirit. In 2021, building on the food truck's triumph, Jamaica Pon Di Road opened its first brick-and-mortar establishment, turning a modest dream into a cherished family legacy.

Jamaica Pon Di Road stands proudly as a testament to their journey. Chef G's culinary artistry embodies the soul of Jamaica. Beyond the food, it's a narrative of family, community, and legacy. Chef G and his family have metamorphosed a dream into a North Houston legacy, inviting everyone to savor not only the flavors but also the good vibes, making Jamaica Pon Di Road Street Kitchen the ultimate choice.
