Tasty Jerk (London)

Tasty Jerk is absolutely amazing. You need to take note that their Norbury location is no longer open. They've now got one on Whitehorse Road (Croydon) and another in Crystal Palace. I was at the former and wow is it good.

The first time we went we got a jerk pork meal and a jerk chicken meal. The amount of rice you get with a "meal" is absolutely epic. The jerk pork is the best I've ever had and the chicken is very respectable as well. Excellent peppa sauce, btw. They do a thin vinegary one, but not as vinegary as ei. Peppa's in Flatbush. The jerk pork has incredible layers of fat, meat, and skin which work together almost like pork belly. Meals are 6.50

The second time we went we had the mannish water (3) and a small order of jerk pork (4.50.) The small order of jerk pork comes with at least twice as much pork as the meal. It was great. I would definitely recommend that you only get one meal between two people as the amount of rice they give is huge. The mannish water was also great and was very similar to Nigerian goat water.

This is probably my favorite place in all of Croydon and the surroundings now.
