While The Angry Jerk’s name may not be super welcoming, this new Caribbean spot welcomes everyone like family. The restaurant is owned and operated by former pro basketball player Jason Miskiri, who has since turned his passions to culinary art! The fare is inspired by Miskiri’s grandmother, who instilled in him a love of cooking. The flavors at The Angry Jerk are bold, rich, and definitely worth a try. The main menu features rice bowls or tacos, with the jerk shrimp tacos earning rave reviews left and right. As for traditional fare, you can expect brown stew with fried chicken, a tasty whole snapper, curried chicken served with roti, a traditional Caribbean flatbread everyone loves, and more.
Note that what makes The Angry Jerk different from other local Jamaican spots is that once they work out the opening kinks, they plan on serving rice bowls and tacos served up fast-casual style so everything can be customized for every order. For now, you order and they’ll prep in the kitchen and bring it out to you quickly.
