Exploding onto the jerk scene this year is Roywoods, a to-go establishment located near clubby King and Bathurst on Fort York Boulevard.

Mitzie is from Kingston, Jamaica, so if you’re looking for authentic no frills jerk, you can find it here at this Etobicoke take-out spot. The order of the day here is chicken, chicken, and more chicken, so you can get fried or BBQ chicken here as well, or mix up your order into a grab bag of poultry deliciousness.
