‘Real jerk' restaurant Rudie's headed to north London

Rudie's, a "real jerk" Jamaican restaurant, is set to launch in Dalston, London, in September.

Serving up a sharing style small plates menu of traditional Jamaican cuisine presented with a contemporary twist, Rudie's will accommodate 60 covers.

The signature flavour will feature in the restaurant's "real jerk" dishes, which will be marinated for 24 hours in a secret blend of herbs and spices, smoked using pimento and sweet wood, and cooked over coals in traditional jerk drums.

Matin Miah, Rudie's co-founder, commented: "Our primary focus is the food at Rudie's. We've spent a lot of time researching and travelling to find the best Jamaican ingredients and methods of cooking out there and we can't wait to share them with our customers.

"The atmosphere at Rudie's will be cool, funky, casual and fun with a huge smiling persona - we want to bring a great big slice of Jamaica and the best ‘real jerk' to the streets of London."

The restaurant interior will incorporate a central rum bar with lighting installations, as well as bespoke furniture and sculpture designs by Alexander Mulligan.

The bar will serve rum cocktails based on retro classics like the daiquiri and will house an extensive selection of Jamaican rum including Appleton Estate, Wray and Nephew and Monymusk.
