A pop-up canteen located in District, ItalFresh uses the principles of ital cooking to provide a fresh twist on traditional Caribbean dishes.

Pronounced “eye-tal”, Ital is a method of cooking synonymous with the Rastafarian movement and makes use of fully natural ingredients provided by Mother Nature. Ital food is traditionally minimally processed, and contains no animal products, making this a perfect place for vegetarians and vegans. Nonetheless meat eaters will have no problem finding something delicious here too. Living the Ital way is said to increase ‘livity’ and release the positive energy inside all of us.

Creators of ItalFresh, Poppy and Dan, have travelled extensively around Jamaica to bring the true taste of the Caribbean to The Baltic Triangle.
