Nestled in the Tong Mao Hotel lobby in Pudong, this Jamaican import
brews authentic Blue Mountain coffee timed to the hip-swaying beats of reggae
music playing softly in the background.
Though most Jamaicans stick to the milk and/or sugar combination, adding rum
and other tipples has become popular amongst middle to upper class Jamaicans.
Thus, amongst the smorgasbord of blends and brews on offer, you'll find
creations like the decadent Cafe Frappe (coffee blended with ice, condensed
milk, and topped with cinnamon or nutmeg RMB 80) or the Cafe Calypso (espresso
with a splash of potent Jamaican rum, coconut milk and nutmeg, RMB 100).
If you want to take home a taste of Jamaica, the coffee shop also sells bags
of Blue Mountain Coffee and Jamaican spices.
Location: No. 357, Songlinlu, Pudong
