ELEPHANT AND CASTLE | SE17


The Artworks in Elephant and Castle is a creative work hub constructed from re-purposed shipping containers, also home to a few interesting and independent eateries, with the sort of price points we look for.

Family-run Tasty Jerk Caribbean Takeaway stays true to its name, serving up tasty jerk to the local community. Food is prepared fresh and daily, and you can expect the likes of jerk chicken (of course), fried ackee and salt fish, oxtail, curried goat, curried chicken, and a number of different patties.

They all come with coleslaw and a little salad, and your choice of either rice n' peas (some of the tastiest we've had in a Caribbean restaurant), plain rice, or seasoned rice. A small portion will set you back just £4.50, and a large (pictured) is £6.50.

Head to the courtyard with your loot and enjoy some al fresco Caribbean vibes.
