Rudie's Review

Top 10 things you need to know about Rudie’s Dalston:

1) You’re out on Stoke Newington Road, in the beating heart of Dalston, and London’s weather gods are clearly having a bad hair day. All you want is sun, and all you can think of, while staring at your drenched umbrella, is cocktail umbrellas. And here it is, Rudie’s: jerk, plantain, and rum. Sneak in, quick!

2) Rudie’s is a colourful Jamaican restaurant in East London. Upbeat, welcoming and busy even on a mid-week evening, it gives off good vibes.

3) Expectations are high, as from the dining room you spot a giant oil-drum barbecue grill, the smell of jerk spices pervading the room.

4) The people behind Rudie’s have done their research, scouring the Caribbean for its most authentic recipes, and you can see it from the good variety of Jamaican dishes on the menu. From curry goat, ackee and saltfish, to the king of them all, the legendary jerk chicken, there’s plenty of Jamaican specialities to tuck your teeth into.

5) The less adventurous can also find some international barbecue staples, including Boston wings, pork ribs, and mac ‘n’ cheese.

6) However, we have to say, after having enjoyed some seriously mouthwatering jerk chicken at a variety of humble street food stalls and takeaways around London, this professional restaurant is slightly disappointing. The chicken, although packed with flavour, is however quite dry. The curry goat, alas, is rather bland, and the accompanying rice is overcooked.

7) That said, dinner is fortunately saved by scrumptious desserts. The rum cake is moist and indulgent, and each spoonful of banana crème brulée takes your imagination one step closer to the Caribbean.

8) Cocktails are also quite impressive; rum featuring heavenly on a drink list inspired by Jamaica’s favourite tipples. The Rum Punch and the Signature Rum Sour are spot on, generously strong and reasonably priced.

9) The whole menu is, generally, on the cheap side, with just a few dishes over £10. And this is something to value, when so many similar venues this side of town are making the most of the current hype by blowing prices beyond the acceptable.

10) Lively and easy going, Rudie’s is a casual venue to start off a Friday night with friends, enjoying great drinks, before heading off to the nearby Shoreditch clubs or hip Dalston hangouts until the small hours.
