If you head down to Kensington Market and walk by Rasta Pasta, there’s a good chance you’ll see co-owner Magnus Patterson making jerk chicken outside — using a black oil drum barbecue that reminds you of street-side vendors in the Caribbean.
Opened earlier this summer in the location previously occupied by Hogtown Charcuterie, Rasta Pasta serves up pasta and jerk chicken in a small takeout shop. The jerk chicken lunch special goes for $5 with rice ‘n’ beans, gravy and steamed vegetables on the side.
Rasta Pasta, 61 Kensington Ave., 647-501-4505
