Chicken, Ribs, Pork even Salmon at Irie Jerk!

Oh my!  My mouth waters every time I think about dinner ordered from Irie Jerk!  Deciding to find out more, we connected with Tinee Campbell to “Uncover” their story.

Irie Jerk was created in a very unusual manner.  Three men, now known as the “3 Fathers of Irie Jerk” started out by bringing their home cooked meals as lunch while on Shift at Honda.  It didn’t take long for other employees to notice the wonderful aromas of the meals and ask if they could have some.  The delicious meals soon became a standard lunch time fare for over 80+ employees!

Realizing that authentic Jamaican cuisine was so well received in the area, the decision to open a restaurant was easy.  On February 22nd, Irie Jerk celebrates its 1st year anniversary!   What a year they’ve had!  A new restaurant opening just before the world shut down due to COVID!  We really must celebrate with them!

Everything on the menu at Irie Jerk is made in-house.  Their recipes are so protected that the “3 Fathers” are the only ones to prepare and season the meat!

Known as “The Best Jerk North of the Island”, their menu takes jerk seasoning to a whole new level!

When we’re allowed to travel, Jamaica is a stop I often make.  I love the everyday dishes on the island – and that’s what I find on the Irie Jerk menu.  Everything from Jerk Chicken to Curried Goat…even Oxtail!

Between Curried and Jerk meats there’s much to choose from.  On Fridays and Saturdays there’s even Jerk Salmon!  Truly, I can’t wait to try that dish!

Because of their one year anniversary this month, there are some extra nice specials to be had.


BBQ Chicken (New on the menu)

$11.50 medium and $13.50 large

Daily Lunch Special

Any chicken meal

Lunch size


I suggest you check out the website, there are so many great choices!

You can order on either Uber Eats or Skip the Dishes, or for a flat fee of $7.50 added to your bill, the staff will deliver directly to you anywhere in town!

Better yet – head on over to 222 Mapleview Dr. W. Unit 3 and pick up dinner.

You’ll be glad that you did!!

For the Love of Indian! – Tandoori Kingdom

After being through yet another Shutdown, I think that we’re all experiencing a bit of cabin fever.

Days are becoming longer and the feeling that winter will soon be over increases our need to “take on life again!”

Thoughts of spring arriving also bring a change in the way we eat, and for the love of Indian food you should check out Tandoori Kingdom.

For the Love of Indian - Tandoori Kingdom!

This is the perfect time to check out Tandoori Kingdom, the best place for Indian food in Barrie.  Tandoori Kingdom doesn’t use shortcuts or sub-par ingredients.  Their spices are exquisitely fresh and their clay oven is hot.

Although spring is in the air, there are many choices of ‘heat’ to thoroughly warm you from the inside out.

Nirmal and his staff have been busy introducing different dishes to their spring menu.  Some are favorites returned, others – new and exciting.  I’ve chosen my favorites here.

Check out the New Menu Options!

I must say that Indian cuisine is an excellent choice for vegetarians and vegans as there is a wide variety of veggies, cheese and lentil-based dishes on the menu at Tandoori Kingdom.

Curries, as well, are a very popular choice; easily ordered with the ‘heat’ you most enjoy.

The Bhindi Masala is one of our most enjoyable!  Made with okra, onions, tomatoes, spices and herbs, I love it served with a side of rice – Yummy!

Paneer Bhurji is a very healthy menu option. Paneer (Indian cheese) is delightfully combined with tomatoes, onions, capsicum and peas, served with rice and Naan. It’s so filling yet doesn’t make me want to curl up and take a nap like a turkey dinner does!

And of course...

Of course, lamb chops conjure up spring-like feelings, and lamb is my absolute favorite dish to order at Tandoori Kingdom.  Exquisite!  Marinated chops are grilled hot and fast – coming to us tender and delicious.

For the Love of Indian – Tandoori Kingdom leads you into spring with their tantalizing yet healthy menu choices.

Take the drive out Blake Street; it’s time to order – I think!
