London isn’t lacking in jerk options, but it is when it comes to the two Cs: consistency and char. JBs has no problem with either of these. The little restaurant off Peckham High Street makes jerk full of spice, sweetness and a welcome hit of smokiness. A small portion of chicken will set you back just £3 while on weekends their jerk pork is the thing to get ASAP. Their menu of Caribbean classics is all homemade, from patties to stews, and it’s the kind of place you can happily swing by alone or make a detour for to pick up something ludicrously tasty.
