Bolt brings taste of Jamaica to London with new restaurant

PICTURED: Usain Bolt

USAIN BOLT has announced plans to launch his inaugural Tracks & Record restaurant in London this month (October 10).

And the race is on to add a further 14 restaurants across the UK over the next five years, all with a Jamaican theme.

The 32-year-old, who is desperately trying to carve out a new sporting career as a professional footballer and is on trial with Australian top flight club Central Coast Mariners near Sydney, has already opened a trio of Tracks & Records fast-casual eateries in his native Jamaica (Kingston, Montego Bay and Ocho Rios).

Tracks & Records, a fast-casual eatery that serves up traditional Jamaican food such as curried mutton and jerk pork alongside global favourites like burgers, pasta and pizza.

London will become the first international Tracks & Record restaurant, and on their official Twitter account it was announced that the UK outpost is set to stock more than 100 Jamaican rums.

The London restaurant - based on Middlesex Street in east London - will also copy the Jamaican blueprint by being decked in Bolt memorabilia over two floors and pumping reggae music for the dance floor downstairs.

Bolt said: “London is my second home and a place very close to my heart, so it’s brilliant to be sharing a taste of Jamaica in the capital.

"I'm happy to be able to share a taste of the Jamaica that I know and love with the rest of the world."
