The Joys of Mama's Jerk
If you ever find yourself in South London’s Deptford, a journey to Mama's Jerk should be put at the top of your list for many reasons: it’s delicious, it’s delicious and it’s delicious.
Nestled in Deptford Market Yard, Mama's Jerk lures its diners in with spicy yet sweet aromas of Caribbean cooking. Even though the menu is simple, it is still impossible to choose. Even though the BBQ Chicken Cocobun was staring at me, the Jerk Chicken Roti Wrap was the winner, and boy oh boy was it the perfect decision! Filled with jerk chicken goodness and Caribbean salad and beans, the Roti Wrap was sensationally spicy and completely lip-smacking, complemented with fried plantain and jerk sauce…heaven. Don’t get me wrong, it was positively sumptuous, but the star of the show was the pineapple and mango mayo. I’m not lying when I say I would go back just for that mayo alone.
All in all, Mama's Jerk is a gem within the viaducts of Deptford Market Yard and you would be a fool not to sample it for yourself.
