Jerk Chicken [London]

meb81 Aug 7, 2011 12:40 PM

Where to go for authentic, delicious jerk chicken in London? Have enjoyed great jerk outside Emirates stadium, from a food cart. Heard Brixton Village has a few options -- where is best? Have seen but not yet tried the stand on Brick Lane. Sit down preferred, but seeking best no matter where. Will travel.

    Try Negril on Brixton Hill - the chicken is a cut above the rest..
    otherwise, if you really want to go off the beaten track, try Tasty Jerk. search for it on this board.. outstanding - especially the Jerk Pork..

      I think Negril has closed.

      Tasty Jerk in Croydon is IMO the mecca of jerk in London. If you want absolutely fantastic jerk chicken and the best jerk pork I've ever had then spend the extra time on a train to Croydon.

      They sell their peppa sauce too! It's scary stuff though.

        The BBQ stall in the park opposite the Old Vic in Waterloo is pretty good.

          Second Tasty Jerk, and also Carribean Spice Jerk Centre outside Peckham Rye Station. The Jerk Pork is so good I actually haven't bothered trying the chicken yet.
