After operating two locations in Brooklyn, Peppa’s Jerk Chicken officially opened a third spot on the Lower East Side in early 2021. It’s as exciting to eat a platter of charred jerk chicken and festivals from here as it as at their other restaurants. The chicken is just the right amount of smokey, and we highly recommend adding even more jerk sauce to your plate so that it coats every corner of caramelized plantains, and rice and peas.
