Jam Delish – Tooting

Food that’s “jam” packed with flavour 👌🏼 {ad – press sample}⁣

Meet fully vegan @jam.delish – bringing some much needed Caribbean heat to this snowy day ❄️⁣

Fed up with the lack of dishes resembling the traditional Caribbean ones they grew up eating, Jordan & Chyna decided to give it a go themselves👏🏼⁣

Their mock meats are all made in house (some are soy based, some are seitan, some are a mix) 🍗 ⁣

Here’s what I thought (dishes are listed clockwise around the plate):⁣

🍛 Classic island rice and peas⁣
💰£3.50⁣

🥘 Curry goat slow cooked with fresh veg and infused with garlic, ginger, scallions, thyme & scotch bonnets⁣
💰£12.95⁣
🏆Fave dish⁣

🧀 Bacon mac & cheese⁣
💰£7.50⁣

🥘Curry “prawns” with big bold flavours – carrot & peppers in a creamy coconut sauce, infused with garlic, thyme, ginger, scotch bonnet & curry spice⁣
💰£13.95⁣

🍗Jerk “chicken” wings – thin tofu wrap with a sugar cane skewer, marinated in homemade spicy jerk sauce and then grilled⁣
💰£11.95⁣

🥕Slaw made with shredded red & white cabbage, carrots and dressed in apple cider vinegar and mustard⁣
💰£3.50⁣

🥘Curry “chicken” marinated in a secret family recipe and slow cooked with fresh seasonal veg⁣
💰£12.95⁣

💭All of the flavours are stunning. The seasoning on the wings in particular really impressed me. It’s so impressive that this is all made from scratch. My feedback was that I thought some of the mock meats were a little dense / chewy. I would’ve liked them a bit more soft and tender. The prawns were also clever texture-wise but needed a bit more flavour. I’d love to try the veg-based dishes next time. The ackee and codfish sounds divine⁣
