Going straight in, Jerk Shark was my first introduction to Jamaican food meaning, my review will be coming from the taste buds Jamaican cuisine novice who is Nigerian
Here is a really beautiful place, perfect interior and minimalist furniture, I love how interesting the spot is. Upon entering Jerk Shark you’ll be welcome with interesting Jamaican music that matches the whole Jamaican cuisine feel, which I feel is very thoughtful of the restaurant management.
A part of the restaurant houses a mini Jamaican authored book store and spices of Jamaican origin. The Jerk shark claims to offer the best Jamaican and Caribbean food in Nigeria. I can’t dispute or corroborate because I’m not Jamaican but let’s get into what we ordered. I had Escovitch Fish with Potato chips, while my dining partner Chukwuma had Ital Carrot Soup as a starter, then Curry Goat, Steamed rice and Chefs special Plantain Dumpling
Service was great, our meal took about 20 minutes, I love loved my fish, it was basically fish made with some Jamaican spices garnished with bell peppers, a favorite! The potato chips on the other hand were perfect for me.
Although I definitely enjoyed my meal, I do believe there’s a Jamaican ingredient that doesn’t go well with my system because I had stomach ache after and this has happened on the two times I visited this restaurant.
Also Jerk Shack is a very affordable restaurant considering the fact most of the ingredients used aren’t Nigerian ingredients.
