Rudie's Jamaican Sunday Roast Review - Zeena Xena


Hey guys! It's been a while since I've done a food review on my blog right? I feel like each time I'm uploading a story of my food at a restaurant or cooking, you guys seem to be so interested so I thought why not bring this segment back to my blog?

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to head on down to Dalston to try out Rudie's Jamaican Sunday Roast, a true twist on the British tradition. I was super excited by this opportunity as it meant that I would get the Sunday off cooking - waheyy. 

Now if you haven't heard of Rudies before, the restaurant offer casual style dining with Caribbean dishes to suit all. From weekend brunches, to veggie options and Sunday dinners, this restaurant has it all and is very reasonably priced.




To start we opted for some non-alcoholic cocktails which were sooooo good! I mean if you're ever in the area and just want drinks, this is the definitely the place to go. I had the "Jamaica Mi Crazy" which is a delicious blend of pineapple, strawberries, blackberries, lime and almond syrup. 


Onto the roast which includes; A whole chicken, pumpkin, corn on the cob, roast yams, Yorkshire puddings and jerk gravy. 


My favourite thing about this dish had to be the pumpkin. I've never really cooked it or had it in a roast before so this was a first. The pumpkin was FULL of flavour and had the most beautiful texture. Pumpkins are definitely "in" this season so I'll definitely consider adding it to a few dishes. The chicken was also cooked to perfection and broke off nicely which made cutting at the table easy for us.


The corn on the cob was also delicious, and nice to round your Sunday dinner plate off. My only criticism would be that the gravy & roast chicken wasn't as "jerked" as I usually like so didn't feel 100% authentic to me. This is a personal opinion however, as I'm from the Caribbean myself so know the food very well. Note: Rudie's is "Caribbean Inspired" so if you're from the Caribbean as well, please don't expect your Grandma's roast haha.


Roasts are £30 for two and the vegetarian option comes in at £15pp.

Will I be back again? Hell yeah! I deffo want to try their brunch menu and a variety of light bites and dishes. + if the drinks stay as sweet as they are and the music as good as it is, I'll be down in a heartbeat haha! View full menu here

Until next time xx
