Picking up a patty or two from Peppers & Spice has long been one of our favourite it-would-be-rude-not-to activities around Dalston and, in fact, everything from this local takeaway favourite hits the mark. Their jerk - marinaded, oven cooked and finished on the grill - is best slathered with a pot of fruity, punchy sauce. Although not cooked fresh the skin still manages to retain a smoky hit and on a full plate next to their oxtail stew and macaroni pie, makes for an extremely satisfying meal. Expect to queue, expect to have a nice chat, and expect to leave very happy.
