85 Kentish Town Rd, London

There aren’t many halal Sunday roasts in London, but of the ones we’ve tried, the jerked beef number at Guanabana, a Caribbean restaurant on Kentish Town Road, is the best. It’s a hefty plate of food, with the right ratio of rich jerk gravy to everything else. The perfect bite includes a little bit of everything: spicy, tender jerked beef (obviously), the edge of a crispy roast potato, a caramelised baby carrot, a piece of sweet plantain, and an unevenly cut corner of a beautifully deformed yorkshire pudding that’s soaked in gravy. Get a side of mac and cheese to make a near-perfect plate of food even better. It’s a laid-back spot that’s good for small groups, where you can see the chef chaotically put out plate after plate of roasts and, during the week, other Caribbean-inspired dishes like a peppery jerk chicken alfredo.
