Albert's Real Jamaican Foods

Albert's Real Jamaican Foods on Urbanspoon
Hello everyone!
This is another old collection of photos however, if you are a fan of Jamaican Foods, especially Rice and Peas, you need to visit this place.

So when I used to live near St. Clair and Bathurst, I always walked past Albert's Real Jamaican Foods restaurant but never tried out their food. When the restaurant got their kitchen door open to vent out the air, oh man! There is this delicious smell in the air. I bet this is one of their tactics to attract customers. 

So what I usually like to order is Jerk Chicken and Curry Goat with Rice and Peas with their coleslaw. 

For your information, the Rice & Peas has the Gravy on top (I think it's Oxtail gravy).

I have a thing for Rice and Peas. It probably originated from the Black Christian School I was raised in my early childhood. I thought the best thing on their item would be Rice and Peas or a Jamaican Patty. 
Albert's Real Jamaican foods also sells Patties if you're interested.


Who knew Goat would taste this good! I thought goat would taste earthy and gamey but nope. It tasted like lean meat that sort of have the texture of a chicken but the meat is pink and fleshy. 
This dish is not spicy.
It's a very very very flavourful and savoury dish.
In my opinion, I have compared a local Carribean restaurant (that had recently opened last year) Rice and Peas with Albert's Rice and Peas.
I preferred Albert's Rice and Peas because it was more flavourful. When you eat Albert's Rice and Peas, there are so many flavours and they work in unity so well! 

Albert was in the newspapers several times and won awards which he proudly framed his accomplishments on the walls of his restaurant. 

I wish there were more food competitions in Toronto. 

This place is a 4.5/5.0. This place is well known in the St. Clair district. Around 5pm, that is when there is a huge line up of customers. The place is great for dine in. I would say there are approximately 16 chairs however I see most of the customers do take out or place an order over the telephone ahead of time. If you do order rice and peas, be sure to ask for the gravy on top! Bring a $20 for yourself. They also have good doubles (chickpea sandwiches). Another FYI, you will most likely have to wait for at least 10 minutes for your food but it will be worth it. The ladies behind the counter and friendly and they do acknowledge frequent customers.
