We've been living in Toronto for several months now. I've walked by this restaurant with the clever name dozens of times, but never went in until a couple of days ago. The Real Jerk Restaurant specializes in Caribbean food. I ordered the 1/4 chicken. The chicken wasn't dry and it was seasoned well. It had the classic jerk flavor. It was smokey and spicy, but not too spicy. The entree included the chicken, rice and peas, plantains and coleslaw. Everything was delicious. The entire meal was filling and satisfying.

The staff were friendly and greeted me as soon as I walked in. My take-out order was ready and waiting for me when I arrived. The Real Jerk has a bar inside the restaurant with plenty of seating. They have events there every week. I will definitely return to try more things off of the menu.
