Keeping it ital (well, mostly; at least in spirit!) out in Hackney’s Homerton, Imperial Flavors East brings some the best of Jamaican and Caribbean soul food to London’s noble but hungry citizens. And this isn’t just bad box food made by some disinterested, idle jubie we’re talking about here – the princely chefs down Marsh Hill prepare their specialties with love, care, and respect. The results speak and eat for themselves: affordable, nutritious eats known in the area for their supreme taste and quality. Match that with smiling service and delivery to a wide area and you’ve got it made.
If you’ve made the mission out to East London’s Hackney and found this jewel in the crown of Homerton’s Jamaican and Caribbean soul food kitchens, you’re going to want to turn immediately to the chef’s daily specials or the weekly specials. Some of Imperial Flavors East’s recommended signature dishes include the crispy fried chicken served with simple and goodness-packed sides like rice and peas, coleslaw, plantain, and tossed salad. But we’re going to lay a bet that when most diners at Marsh Hill’s finest are going to trump for the jerk chicken or the goat curry.
While a sit-down, slap-up dinner at Imperial Flavors East reward guests with fantastic Caribbean and Jamaican fodder in a homely restaurant, you should also keep in mind that the brains behind Homerton and Hackney’s latest West Indian sensation are more than happy to bring their pride and joy to your home, delivering free to anywhere within a three-mile radius of E9. On top of that, Imperial Flavors East have a spacious banqueting room attached to the main restaurant on Marsh Hill, so you and yours can really feast like kings and queens next time you plan a big bash.
