The Rum Kitchen Carnaby Street
I have really gotten back into my foodie reviews lately mainly because it's something I very much enjoy, London is just full of interesting and cool places to eat and there is something for everyone taste especially as more and more people are getting adventurous with cuisine. I personally get bored of the standard American style restaurant, as much I enjoy them I would always pick something with a little more pizzazz. In comes the Rum Kitchen. I tried this for the first time a few weeks ago for my friends Birthday and I thought I would report back.
The menu all though small has a varied amount of Caribbean dishes including 'Mutton Curry', Jerk Dishes, Burgers, and Salads. The decor of the restaurant is wonderful, it's very chilled with coloured lights, wood features and simplistic designs.
For starters Dan and I went for Salt Fish Fritters and Jerk Wings (sorry forgot to snap both.) The wings were nice, well cooked and tasty. They were fairly spicy so if you are not a fan of heat I wouldn't recommend this. To be honest I can't say the wings were out of this world but they certainly were well seasoned and not over cooked.
For my main I chose the Jerk Chicken Supreme, I was umming and ahhing between this and the Mutton Curry but decided in favour of the Supreme as recommended by the waitress. It was a good shout! The Chicken was perfect as was the creamy sweet potato and Yam mash that accompanied it. The sauce although spicy really complimented the sweetness of the mash, urgh it was really good.
