Some of you may remember when we brought you news of a whole load of jerks coming to Dalston. As if there isn’t enough already, right? But this is the best kinda jerk, the kind you eat. Rudie’s is now open serving a banging selection of Caribbean dishes and island inspired cocktails – who said frozen Pina Coladas were only for the beach? We kicked off with a selection of mini-patties, flaky little pastries stuffed with a variety of meat and veg and the Ackee and Saltfish bakes which were like fluffy sliders overflowing with filling.
The main attraction though, is the jerk, which is marinated for 24 hours and cooked in a traditional drum – just like they do in Jamaica man! Both the pork belly and chicken were soft pieces of meat served alongside homemade sauces which are spicy HAWT. Sweet potato fries are a must too and you know those frozen cocktails? Well trust us, your mouth with thank you for ordering one after those sauces…
Rudie’s, Jamaican me crazy for Caribbean.
