JRK BROS – (INTERLUDEE BAR), LEE
Cuisine: Jamaican/Caribbean Fusion
Average price pp: £15-£25
JRK BROS is a brand new eatery founded by two friends on a quest to take Caribbean fusion food
to new heights. Both owners have Jamaican heritage and felt that there wasn’t any current
Caribbean restaurants who presented Caribbean cuisine in a modern way, thus they created this
venture to fill this market gap. They are currently operating as a pop up restaurant at Interludee
bar in Lee, South London serving unique dishes that are made from the finest and freshest produce.
After drooling over a variety of exotic sounding cocktails listed on the menu, I settled for the
French Vanilla Ciroc cocktail which was primarily made up of French Vanilla Ciroc hence the name.
I thoroughly enjoyed this drink. The sweet aroma of vanilla could be smelled just as equally as it
could be tasted.
I had a starter of jerk wings, which were incredible. Delicate pieces of chicken came gracefully
of the bone once I bit into them. A light ketchup sauce was drizzled over them giving a sweet
yet tangy savour which complimented the spiciness from the jerk seasoning. The portion
size was also very generous for £4.95.
Now I adore salmon so when I saw that JRK BROS served it jerked in a burger… I had to order.
It came s with coleslaw and sweet potato fries. In my opinion the jerk flavour wasn’t strong
enough so the salmon tasted quite fresh. It was still a good burger though with the bun
being softly textured and the salad being crunchy. Furthermore, the sweet potato fries tasted
good and had a lovely crispy outer layer just how I like them.
