The Jerk is a Jamaican flavour restaurant in Melbourne


The Jerk is a Jamaican flavour restaurant located in several places in Melbourne. We went to their South Yarra outlet which has the vibe of being in Jamaica.

Naturally, their signature dishes are Jamaican Jerk Chicken, which we order 2 x half chicken for 2 person
You can select Lemon&Thyme, mild, hot and raging jerk hot for the chicken. There are Jerk sauces which you can add on, they are Jerk Mayo, Jerk Smoky BBQ, Lemon&Thyme, Mild, Hot, Raging Jerk Hot.

We prefer the Lemon&Thyme and Mild which goes very well with the soft, tender, juicy chicken. These delicious chickens are marinated for 24-hours in The Jerk’s unique recipes.

They have burgers, wraps and some uniquely classics like Mushroom chips, there’s something for everyone at The Jerk.

We decided to order their The Paradise Burger which is huge and filled with Jerk Chicken, Bacon, smoke pineapple etc.
The mushroom chips are another of our favourite as it is quite large and perfectly fried. We don’t see this often so it is a delight.
Caribbean Coconut Slaw is another side that you can’t miss. Jamaican rice will be our next choice when we visit again.

They have an extensive drinks menu, we tried their cocktails and they are refreshing, choose one to go with your dishes for that perfect meal at The Jerk.
