The establishment formerly known as Smokey Jerkey is now Smokey Jerk. The worn, hand-painted signage of this New Cross go-to has been replaced for something altogether shinier. Although there are now a handful of tables inside the stripped-back Caribbean spot to eat in, the jerk chicken and lamb isn’t quite as good as it once was. The chicken is no longer fresh off the grill, but the lamb is still tender and smoky. That’s the thing to order. The sauces are a bit hit and miss. What was once an enlivening homemade pepper sauce is now more like Turkish chilli sauce. None if it is bad, but nor is it the best jerk in town anymore.
