Bluejeanfood - better known as Derek Timm host of Small Bites the #1 listed "Food Radio Show Philadelphia & South Jersey" by Wildfire Radio - recently posted a review of Rasta Kitchen in Merchantville's West End on his "Quick Bites/Takeout" page. This place is a South Jersey hidden gem. Not only was the drink great, the meal was amazing. From the jerk chicken, plantains, rice, and cabbage everything was cooked perfectly and tasty as could be. It was very affordable as well for the amount of food provided. If you love Jamaican food or happen to be in the area you should give them a try for sure.
