There is something about street food you don’t get from a regular restaurant and in Portsmouth you get the best of both at Outside-In.
Centrally situated in an old renovated warehouse amongst the University buildings, just a short walk from the train station. It is a food court, bringing together some of the best food vendors in the area; my introduction to Natty’s jerk chicken and the taste of the Caribbean.
Jerk chicken is a spicy grilled chicken dish mostly associated with Jamaica but common throughout the Caribbean. A style of cooking in which the main ingredient—which most often is chicken but may also be beef, pork, goat, boar, seafood, or vegetables—is coated in spices and slow-cooked over a fire or grill, traditionally composed of green pimento wood positioned over burning coals; the resulting smoke is key to the flavour of the dish.
Not forgetting to mention the jerk slow smoked baby back ribs and the house special, goat curry.
Vibrant exciting food to warm the very soul. Street food as it should be.
