It’s the ‘Real Jerk’, and you know it. Marinated for 24 hours before being smoked and cooked, over coal and wood chips, it doesn’t take long before you’re under its spell. At this fiery Jamaican joint, the ‘Real Jerk’, is tender and oh-so moorish. Soaked in bold and spicy sauce, come day or night, you can’t escape the island vibe.

While the Dalston spot is little design kitsch, in the kitchen expect traditional techniques and a twist on mama’s Jamaican recipes. A plate of patties, try the spiced lobster, and a reggae soundtrack is a sure-fire way to feed your soul. Rudies is a Rasta’s tip of the hat to the iconic Caribbean culture and lifestyle.
