Rudie’s Opens in Dalston

Think Jamaica: don’t think Usain Bolt, don’t think Bob Marley, think instead Rudie’s.  Opening on the 7th October in Dalston, it’ll be serving up real jerk dishes, Jamaican cooking with a contemporary twist, easy vibes and a whole lot of Jamaican sass.

The signature dishes ‘real jerk’ will be marinated for 24 hours in a secret blend of herbs and spices then smoked using pimento and sweet wood before being cooked over coals in jerk drums – see what they mean about real? They’re taking their time, it’s all chill here, good food done slowly.

Other dishes include Jamaican street food favourites, patties as well as curry goat dumplings with pepper jelly, bammy bruchetta and a shrimp salad with fresh jalapeno – it’s food for the soul. Of course they’ll be puddings too, using the best ingredients, rum and bananas, like a sticky rum cake with rum butter sauce and banana caramel doughnuts.

The 60 cover restaurant will feature bespoke furniture, an open plan kitchen, industrial lighting but the best part has to be the central rum bar, which will be home to the UK’s largest Jamaican rum selection – we’re talking Appleton Estate, Edwin Charley and Monymusk. They’ll be cocktails too, they’ve joined forces with the top rum mixologists to make cocktails which will chronical the island’s history. They’ll be modern twists on the classics like Old Fashioneds as well as Rudie’s flaming Rum Punch ‘Catch a Fire’ that will be made using rum from all four operational distilleries in Jamaica – it’s going to be fiery.

So take it slow, leave London life behind for the evening  and escape to Jamaica…well the Dalston equivalent.

Rudie’s: Opens 7th October, 50 Stoke Newington Road, N16 7XB,
