PECKHAM | SE15
JB's Soul Food & Jerk Chicken joint in Peckham is a London Cheap Eats dream. Authentic food (in this case Caribbean), freshly prepared, generously portioned, and served with a smile for under £8.
There's so much to enjoy here, but on your first visit, treat yourself to a mountain of their signature jerk chicken with rice and coleslaw / salad for £6. To be honest, the £5 'regular' size would probably be enough.
It's beautifully seasoned and smoked, but it's not too spicy. You won't need any more food, but salt fish fritters, fried chicken, and patties are all under £1.50 if you want to soldier on.
There are a couple of small tables inside, but this is basically a takeaway joint. There are also lunch deals and discounts for students Mon - Fri, plus it's halal.
