Thanks to Rudie’s for hosting us at their new streetfood sister restaurant in Boxpark. It was the perfect opportunity to reacquaint ourselves with contemporary Jamaican dishes and our old friend Rum Punch. 🍹
The unit is located upstairs at Boxpark above the row of trendy shops. It’s covered, music is provided and there are even USB ports at all the tables you can top yourself up with some punch and jerk chicken along with your power hungry phone.
We tasted their delicious sweet potato fries, calamari, chicken and some goat of course! The space has a casual lively atmosphere ideal for lifting your mood. A bar’s located on the floor but you should try a traditional soft drink, rum or Guinness punch.
It’s great to see the Rudie’s expanding and introducing a modern approach to Jamaican food and drinks. Visit on your next outing to Shoreditch or locals, just pop in and take away!
