In between Westbourne Park and Ladbroke Grove tube stations is Jay Dees - a Caribbean cash-only takeaway spot that you really want to know about. You don’t need to spend much to get a lot here. For £7.50 you can get a tupperware packed to the brim with charred jerk chicken, rice and peas, cabbage, beans, and carrots, and covered in a perfectly spicy and fruity sauce. It’s as delicious as it is generous, and there’s lots more on the menu as well, from curried goat to saltfish patties. If the weather’s right walk up the road a minute to Tavistock Gardens, find yourself a spot, and get stuck in.
