Famed Jamaican Jerk Shack group to open new dine-in restaurant in Market Row
LONDON, October 2020 – Matin and Michelle Miah, the husband and wife team behind Rudie’s Jerk Shack, are delighted to announce the opening date of their third site in Brixton Village, Tuesday 10th November. To celebrate the launch they will also be offering diners 50% off their food bill during their soft launch from Thursday 5th November until Sunday 8th November, with guests being asked to book online to redeem.
The couple will bring their unique and authentic take on Jamaican cuisine to Brixton, with the return being particularly significant to Michelle who spent a lot of time in the South London Borough visiting her grandmother. Split across two levels, the 50 cover restaurant, with indoor and outdoor table service, will be located in Market Row.
Michelle will once again draw on her Jamaican heritage to create a menu that is full of innovative, authentic dishes packed full of flavour. The menu at Brixton will feature their famed ‘Real Jerk’, with meats and fish marinated for 24 hours in their secret blend of herbs and spices, before being grilled and smoked slowly over charcoal in a steel drum. Diners can expect Jerk Chicken served with ‘rude’ sauces and jerk gravy, Jerk Lamb Rump with scotch bonnet jam and Jerk Swordfish with coriander lime sauce.
Other favourites will include the Yardi Classic of Curry Goat – bone in goat and potato curry served with rice and peas, and Roti Wraps, either the Chicken – Jerk chicken, slaw, crispy salad, jerk gravy and rude sauces or the Channa Roti Wrap – chickpea and potato curry, crispy salad and rude sauces both served with fries.
Not to be outdone, the ‘Likkle’ selection will include Jamaica’s national dish, Ackee & Saltfish, alongside Boston Wings – Jerked chicken wings, Stamp & Go – sweetcorn and pepper fritters and Peppa Swimp – Middle Quarter style spicy king prawns.
The drinks list will naturally include a selection of rum based cocktails, including their lethal Rum Punch – Wray & Nephew, AppletonSignature Blenf and Fruit Juices, along with a Ting Wray – Wray & Nephew, Ting Grapefruit Soda and Fresh Lime and a Jamaican Mule – Appleton Rum, Ginger Ale and Fresh Lime. The menu will also feature a selection of beers such as the famed Jamaican Red Stripe and wines. Guests will also be able to take advantage of Rudie’s Irie Hour, which will run from Tuesday – Fridays from 5pm – 7pm where guests can receive two cocktails for the price of one.
Of the launch Michelle Miah says ‘This is a very personal launch for us. Having spent a lot of my childhood days in Brixton with my Jamaican grandma, I know that authenticity and flavour is key when serving Jamaican dishes. Matin and I have spent years travelling to Jamaica, researching, tasting and trying as much as possible and we are so proud of what we have created. I can’t wait to bring our take on Jerk the people of Brixton to try it’.

About Brixton Village
As one of London’s most diverse and vibrant markets, Brixton Village is a thriving destination for shopping, eating and cultural events that has been built on the unique character of the neighbourhood and its rich cultural heritage. Located on either side of Atlantic Road and a short walk from Brixton Station, the covered markets (Brixton Village and Market Row) have come together under one umbrella to be collectively known as Brixton Village. Cherished by the community for their rich social and cultural history, the markets were saved from destruction in 2009 by a passionate campaign led by local activists, councillors, MPs and English Heritage. Hondo Enterprises became the custodians of Brixton Village and Market Row in 2018 and under their stewardship will preserve and promote their unique character for the long-term.
