Now take you minds out of the gutter and think of chicken. Yes that’s it, think of that beautiful Jerk chicken juice dribbling down your chin. OK so our mind is still in the gutter too but that hasn’t put us off visiting The Queen of Hoxton, who are bringing one of this year’s top food trend to the east end on the 3rd August.

The event also takes place just before the 52nd Jamaican Independence Day, and what better way to celebrate than to eat from four of London’s hottest jerk venders to battle it out in an epic, all-day chicken ‘Jerk Off’ on their rooftop.

Those taking part include; Brixton Village’s Fish, Wings & Tings , White Men Can’t Jerk, Mama’s Jerk Station and Boom Burger and only one of them will be crowned the ‘Jerk Off’ champion 2014!

So the question is: Can you handle the heat? Prep your taste buds for jerk chicken that The Queen of Hoxton promises to be of the highest order and will probably blow your mouth off! Caribbean, African and London flavours are being represented, as each ‘jerker’ brings their unique seasoning, rubs, marinades and cooking styles to their rooftop with the soul purpose of wowing the crowds. The Queen of Hoxton Rooftop Jerk Off - Preview 8

Chances are you might find us there sat in a corner eating chicken and forgetting to tweet pictures about it, because that’s how we roll!
