Formerly a catering and delivery-only business, Ruby’s Jamaican Kitchen now has a brick-and-mortar restaurant to serve up all their incredible cuisine to the masses in Alexandria. If you have ever had their catering, you know that you’re in for a treat with this new addition! Since we can’t travel anywhere, flavorful Caribbean cuisine like Ruby’s is the closest we’re going to get to the Caribbean anytime soon – so indulge yourself!
The top seller is the jerk chicken because it’s delicious and it’s also a pretty well-known dish in general. So while that is a must-try, there is so much more to the menu! Meat is their specialty, with the patties coming in a close second to the jerk chicken – everyone loves them. Choose from beef, chicken, fish, or veggie, they all get equally great reviews. If you want to be a little adventurous try the ackee and saltfish. Ackee is Jamaica’s national fruit so this is one of the most traditional Jamaican dishes you can try! Give it a taste and let us know what you think!
