Jamaica here I come – Three Little Birds

Once you step inside a Three Little Birds restaurant you will feel like that you have been transported to Jamaica with the vibe of the place, music, smell of rum and Jamaican food.

Three Little Birds

Firstly let me tell you more about Three Little Birds.

April Jackson (former Miss Jamaica Universe, food blogger & The Apprentice 2015 candidate) decided to open up her own Jamaican inspired restaurants.

Three Little Birds was initially a project to celebrate Jamaica’s cuisine, music and talent whilst giving guests the opportunity to escape the concrete jungle and instead journey to the Caribbean.

She opened up her first restaurant and rum bar in Brixton to celebrate her island’s cuisine, music and talent.

Then in April 2018 she has expanded by opening up her second restaurant in Clapham Junction for diners to enjoy her real Jamaican experience.

April has kept to her Jamaican roots as both of her restaurants reflect that with the reinterpreted classical recipes and artisan rum cocktails alongside warm service which breathes new life into Caribbean eateries as you may know them.

Transported to Jamaica

Three Little Birds bar

I went along on a blogger assignment on a complimentary basis to Three Little Birds Blogger Brunch event. I got to enjoy some samples of what foodie delights Three Little Birds have to offer on any Saturday or Sunday morning.

When I stepped through the doors of Three Little Birds in Clapham I felt like I had been transported to Jamaica with the vibes, music, smells of rum and the Jamaican food coming wafting from the kitchen.

I enjoyed samples of Avo Crostini, Ackee Spoon, Banana Pancakes, Ackee & Saltfish Spoon, Mini Jerk Chicken Burger and Carrot Cake.

This is the Avo Crostini.

I was a bit hesitant at first in trying it as I really don’t like avocado but April convinced me to try it as she said with the chilli spice and added extra ingredients it won’t taste of pure avocado. I was so happy she did convince me to try it though as I loved it. The chilli kick to this brochette definitely gave it that extra wow factor.

Next I tried the Ackee Spoon.

Apparently even though this looks like egg it is a fruit. This was my first time in trying Ackee and it tasted a bit strange maybe a little similar to scrambled egg. I am unsure if I liked Ackee though as did not have much taste.

Now onto one of my favourites Banana Pancake.

I love desserts so this banana pancake was a delight with it’s sticky coating and fluffy pancake. It made me think of banana trees in Jamaica and rum.

Ackee was served again but this time with Saltfish.

April came along with the newer Ackee spoon with added salt fish. This totally made the whole taste different with the saltiness of the fish. I think adding such ingredients to this dish as fish or meat is a good idea as it did not just give it flavour but the different textures from the soft texture of the Ackee to the fish gave it a whole different take.

Next was the Mini Jerk Chicken Burger.

I did not taste the mini burger as I am not keen on chicken burgers. However my friend Steve said they were delicious, moist and full of flavour.

Last stop was the Carrot Cake.

Now wow what can I say but this carrot cake blew me and Steve away. Not only was the carrot cake moist but the flavour was intensely delicious making it one of the best carrot cakes I have ever had and not killed with lots of icing just a thin sweet layer. So if you love carrot cake as much as me I highly recommend visiting Three Little Birds and having one at their restaurant. I certainly will be going back to have another and another and another.

Plus throughout the morning there was plenty of cocktails to enjoy from non alcoholic to alcoholic cocktails such as the Kingston Don, Jus Easy and Stir It Up.

I sampled some Don Papa Rum also whilst there and now I don’t usually like rum but wow this caramelised based rum was heavenly and my head was thinking Canada and Jamaica blended well together. I will certainly be looking to have this rum again.

At the end before leaving we was given some courtesy coffee bags to take home each. I have not tried it yet but the smell seeping from the bag smells amazing.

Enjoy Three Little Birds

So if you are wanting to experience a real Jamaican vibe I highly recommend visiting one of her Three Little Birds restaurants.

The whole atmosphere within the Clapham restaurant had a great vibe that morning and April was an absolute delight so friendly and welcoming.

You will come out saying “Dat shot” (that’s fantastic).
