I love barbeque – the smoky and savory flavors, the dedication it takes to prep and cook the meats and just the sheer joy of eating it – everything about it. To me, there’s nothing better; except Jamaican barbeque, of course.
Finding really great authentic Jamaican food can be hard to find, BUT luck for you, I’ve already done the dirty work for you, and I’ve found a delicious Jamaican barbeque joint right in our back yard (or front yard, however you look at it).
The place I’m calling out is House of Jerk Dread on Penn Street in Reading. This restaurant has it all, my friends. A friendly staff, great atmosphere and amazing food is all waiting for you at HOJD, and I wouldn’t wait any longer to experience the magic.
When you arrive, you’re greeted by an amazing staff that makes their house feel like your home. Take a quick look around and you’re instantly hit with the amazing woodwork displayed on the walls and tables. The Jerk Dread himself hand made EVERYTHING you see in that restaurant. Just ask, and you’ll get the story.
The food is second to none. When you visit HOJD, you know you’re getting fresh, authentic ingredients in every dish. How do you know that? I know that because you can simply taste it in every bite of food in every single dish.
From the barbequed pork, to the jerk chicken and everything in between, HOJD is serving up food using recipes passed down from generation to generation.
