The Real Jerk

The already popular Jamaican restaurant was made even more famous earlier in the year since it was the filming location for Rihanna's "Work" music video featuring Drake.

Banana Fritters and Dumplings with oxtail gravy
It's fascinating to know that every culture/type of cuisine has a different type of dumpling (especially since I just had Mandu less than a week ago).
The combination of oxtail gravy and dumplings were really good! The oxtail gravy was amazing and the dumplings were dense but similar to Chinese youtiao but not as crispy. 
The banana fritters were really good too with a nice slightly gummy texture and not heavy on the banana flavour.

The chicken was super juicy, tender and so flavourful and it wasn't spicy at all.  The goat curry was delicious too with tender morsels of nicely seasoned and flavoured goat - the curry was definitely a spicier than the jerk chicken, but the rice and coleslaw helped cut the heat and served as a great complement. 

Overall: The Real Jerk has delicious Jamaican food and big portions. Definitely worth a try!
