[Review] Jerkkies Caribbean Restaurant

Those kind people at JUST EAT contacted me the other day and asked if I'd be willing to try out their booking engine and support their Tried & Tasted campaign - so I had a rootle around on the site and found a Caribbean place just around the corner - Jerkkies - that had never hit my radar and gave it a whirl...

For one day only, I decided to exchange my usual beef patty for a caribbean beef patty (hunger and an 'all afternoon meeting' may have had a hand in this), so I went for a one of those, along with a goat curry, plantain, and rice and 'peas'.
The beef patty was full of a sweet and spicy caribbean flavoured steak with a thick sauce, surrounded by a thin, and quite short, pastry coloured with turmeric. It's about 5 mouthfuls of food, but the intense bright flavours of fruit and juicy spice merge with the savoury beef brilliantly. I could probably eat a few of these in one sitting.

The second part of my meal was a goat curry, complete with plantain and kidney bean rice (anyone know why they call it rice and peas?). The dark curried goat meat literally melted on my tongue - with none of the sinew that you can get when using leaner and more active quadroped meat - and the mild curry sauce is packed with turmeric. Tie that in with the sweet mellow plantain and you've got yourself a fantastic lunch.

So trading my usual burger for something a bit different paid off. Don't worry...I won't make a habit of it :)

About the Tried & Tasted Awards

JUST EAT feedback has given Food Lovers across the country the ability to rate their favourite local takeaways. The Tried and Tasted awards gives people from all around the UK who vote for their favourite takeaways via the JUST EAT website the chance to rate their locals who focus on quality and consistency. The consistency award is an uber award that, out of 8,000 restaurants rated every year, recognises a handful of just 20 as the best of the best - receiving the highest ratings and reviews from those cities that had accumulated the most T&T winners overall.
