For jerk chicken lovers in Etobicoke we are spoiled with the yearly JerkFest that takes place every summer at Centennial Park. However, our cravings aren’t limited to that single weekend each year. So where do we go? Mitzie’s Jerk in Etobicoke of course!
Mitzie’s Jerk is located at 3337 Bloor Street West just a block and a half east of Islington. It’s a small place with big smiles from not only its patrons but from Mitzie herself. Seating is limited to stools by the window and it could be a bit busy during the lunch hour but this is how it’s supposed to be. We’re here for jerk chicken, not candle lights! During the summer months the patio opens up for even more space to enjoy your Caribbean meal. Dine-in or take-out, it’s all good!
So what does Mitzie have up her sleeve to solve your hunger pains? Lots! Main stays such as jerk chicken, fried chicken, ox tail, curry goat, jerk pork, fish, stew chicken and of course Jamaican patty! If there’s some variation that you’d like Mitzie will try to oblige. Dinners also come with some of the best rice and coleslaw I’ve had. You could also grab a Coke to wash down the daily special but I prefer Ting or Ginger Beer personally. Mitzie’s Jerk also caters and offers delivery on Saturdays after 3pm.
There are too few places where the owner genuinely cares what you think of the food. Mitzie is always asking us “Everything alright? How’s the food? Can I make up something for you?”. It’s no wonder that everyone who comes by Mitzie’s Jerk seems like a friend. And frankly they are.
While waiting in line and wondering out loud what to order we had four different people give us their opinions. This tells me that people love what they’re eating at Mitzie’s Jerk so much so that they are confident that we’ll love it too. And we do!
