A friend highly recommended Under The Table saying they have one of the best Jamaican Jerk Chicken & Oxtail Stew at a reasonable price. Then I checked Yelp and found glowing positive reviews from fellow Yelpers so this really piqued my curiosity to check this place out as people are giving 4 and 5 stars.
And boy we're glad we did coz by far this is one of the best jerk chicken and oxtail stew in downtown Toronto! We tried Rasta Pasta and it doesn't even come close to the deliciousness that Under the Table offers.
Located in the heart of Cabbagetown, it's hidden below street level and a hole in the wall. The place is also dark and dated but don't let that stop you from coming and checking inside the restaurant. The owners and the staff are the most friendliest bunch we've ever encountered. Service is also 5 star, you know everyone who works here love what they're doing by how well they treat their customers.
And the food, OMG, the food here are heavenly! The Jerk Chicken is so addictive - it's smoky, moist, sweet and spicy. It's not the normal jerk chicken leg you find in other restaurants. The dish comes with bite sized jerk chicken, rice and peas, salad and a delicious coleslaw. The oxtail is also fall of the bone tenderness - a satisfying stew perfect for a chilly day. They also give you homemade hot sauce which is amazingly good and spicy.
And the best part, the prices are so reasonable. Can't wait to come back and try other dishes from their menu.
