If you visited Miss Likklemore’s pop-up location back in 2020, you may have been saddened when it closed not too long after it opened. But it’s finally back and bigger than ever with a whole new vibe. The beloved Caribbean spot is heating up King St with authentic dishes, tangy cocktails and welcoming space for all.
Scale Hospitality announced the launching of its newest upscale restaurant, Miss Likklemore’s, at 433 King Street West. The new hub opened up back in August and has gained popularity for its mouthwatering cuisine.
Curiocity had a chance to check out the new space and it’s a definite upgrade from its initial roots.
As soon as you enter the restaurant, you’re immediately hit with a feeling of comfort, familiarity and eagerness to explore the eccentric menu.
It’s dimly lit and its colour palette provides a more calm yet sophisticated vibe.
The new 65-seat restaurant includes an intimate 12-seat private dining room, stunning bar, an open concept kitchen, and an outdoor patio.
“I’m so excited to be able to take our families’ recipes and showcase them through our interpretation of thoughtful Caribbean cuisine. This is exemplified by dishes such as Miss Edna’s jerk chicken and Darren’s mother’s carrot cake,” said Lonie Murdock, Partner and Head Chef of Miss Likklemore’s.
“We’re not trying to be traditional, but we’re always mindful of tradition as we pay homage to the glorious flavours of our roots.”
The original Miss Likklemore’s location led restaurateur Hanif Harji and partner Darren Hinds (The Good Son) to explore a permanent home and elevated execution for the concept, all while keeping the traditional soul of its unique flavours.
Start your experience off with a refreshing cocktail. We recommend trying the Electric Avenue and Likklemore’s Punch. They have a full list of delicious cocktails including an almost endless list of world rums.
When you have your drink sorted out, explore their enticing menu. If you’re with a group of friends, you might want to share some appetizers.
The Doubles are a must-try, as well as the Salt Cod Fritters, Likkle Patties, and of course, the famous House Hot Sauce Trio.
Still not full yet? Of course you’re not. Your night is not complete without some mains. Traditional Caribbean cuisine with some flair. We’re talking Ox tail, jerk chicken and more.
Our recommendations: Crab XO featuring Carolina gold rice, snow crab, toasted coconut, and cilantro; Miss Edna’s Whole Smoked Jerk Chicken, Slow Braised Oxtail composed of spinners, butter beans, and scallion slaw.
As for sides, you absolutely have to get the Mac Pie and Nuff Puff Slaw. It’s the perfect pairing for your feast.
Don’t forget to get your hands on desserts. Miss Paula’s Carrot Cake is super rich, you’ll be wanting seconds. It’s almost addicting.
Miss Likklemore’s is open every day for dinner from 5 PM until late.
Expect a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights as well as Sunday brunch coming later this fall.
Where: 433 King Street West
