If it is food and drink with heart and soul you want, it's heart and soul you're going to get at The Rum Kitchen. With their foodie focus on Caribbean cuisine, there is curried goat, jerk chicken and salt fish in abundance with main meals starting from as little as £8. The Rum Kitchen does not only offer a quirky selection of cocktail treats from rum punch to fruity concoctions, but there's a selection of 100 rums to choose from!
...making the hop from W11 are the carefully distressed driftwood, the don’t-worry-be-happy slogans on the walls, the fancied-up versions of Caribbean classics on the food menu (saltfish fritters, jerk chicken wings, curry mutton, roti) and the all-rum cocktails (we particularly enjoyed the disturbingly named Lesser of Two Weevils, an easy-drinking mix of Red Stripe ginger beer shandy, rum, lime and bitters).
...cocktails are the place to start. There’s a hefty book load of them, some classic and some new, all sharing one common ingredient: rum...we tried a classic mojito (don’t call us boring), and found it to be among the best we’ve had, thanks once again to some far superior rums than normally meet their fate with the mint leaves.
