The Little Jamaica Bistro

Hello, I would like to introduce myself.
My name is Laurel Joy Hayles
Aka Jamaican Joy 

My passion is cooking,  creating my own unique taste with the Jamaican influence.

Both my mother and father were very hard working people, leaving me and my older sister to do the cooking for the whole family.  I fell in love with cooking and seeing smiling faces after eating my dishes. I am a Jamaican, I grew up in England and traveled through out Europe to learn more from my passion for good food and good wine.  I have been cooking professionally since three years. From the food truck I worked my way up to a well loved cook. Currently online using  a very popular restaurant platforms  with a 5-star rating from over 180 customers.  Also  Uber Eats food delivery.

The next step is my own Bistro / Cocktail bar, a place where I can put all my passion and skills into.

Imagine a stylish presented  table,  great wine, cocktails and the best beers, a competent service, classical reggae music  or live soft music in the background and much more. I truly believe in my concept and my  cooking skills. Check out the great reviews on Little Jamaica. I need fundings to invest in renovate  the 2 rooms at the rear of the building, for prepping and workshop space. I try to get the finances in every possible way and work very hard to make my dream a reality.  would your input  be granting me my dream? Any amount is help. Thanks in advance. I hope to see you soon in my beautiful Little Jamaica Bistro.

PS. Each person that donates, receives a personal invitation from me, for a lavish dinner and bubbles <3
