Take Out @ Mr Jerk (North York)

3:17:00 PM

I had an appointment for daughter today. Once it was finished, I had to get to work for the afternoon and it was about lunch time. When you had kids, everything in life becomes chaotic especially when they are young. I failed to plan for lunch ahead of time ... So I needed to buy some lunch. I recalled there were some positive comments about "Mr. Jerk" in my neighborhood and decided to give it a try.

Mr. Jerk was located at Peanut Plaza in North York. The restaurant was tiny and had a size of a large closet ... There was no seat in available. Food was only available for take out. The restaurant looked old and outdated inside with these brown tiles everywhere. Discovered online that this place started in 1986 and grew into an empire of franchise stores across Toronto.

The staff was very friendly. I asked for what was popular and which type of meat cut. Had a discussion about their store and how they expanded with the other franchise locations across Toronto.

Food Comments:
With the staff recommendation, I ordered the jerk pork with rice since the pork was fatty and juicy. I was able to finally open the take out box at work and was surprised to see the amount of beans and rice!  The amount of rice and beans was probably 2 giant rice bowls. They also provided a small side of carrot salad (was not that sour or strong in flavour).

The fatty pork jerk meat was delicious with the gravy sauce. The jerk was rich with a bit of heat but does not overpower the meal.

The staff said the jerk pork and chicken sell equally well but he suggested the pork was his favourite due to the fattiness of the meat.
