A new Caribbean restaurant called The Real Jerk will open in Streatham Hill this May. It replaces the Pukka Indian restaurant on the corner of Barcombe Avenue and Streatham High Road (opposite Balfe’s Bikes).
The owners of The Real Jerk also have two restaurants in Toronto with the same name. This will be their first branch outside of Canada. The menus for the Toronto restaurants contain Caribbean classics like Jerk Chicken, Curry Goat and Curried Fish. Vegetarian options may be limited!
Lily Pottinger the owner and chief at The Real Jerk has her own Caribbean cookbook. She describes the book as:
an easy to follow Caribbean cooking bible
