Follow our series of profiling amazing St. Clair businesses who make our community so vibrant.
We’ve profiled a good few St. Clair businesses in the last number of weeks. Each of them bring something special to the neighbourhood, yet few of them can be described as iconic. Albert’s can.
A mainstay of the St. Clair Avenue and Vaughn Road intersection since 1986, this restaurant truly lives up to its name, serving up the most delicious and authentic Jamaican cuisine you can find in the city.
The moment you walk through their doors, the aroma of freshly-made foods hits you – from the stew beef, oxtail, and curry goat offerings, to their beautifully-seasoned (and generously-portioned) rice.
This writer considers themselves as a tough coleslaw critic. I can proudly state, without hesitation, that Albert’s coleslaw is the best that I’ve ever had. Combined with the mouth-watering dishes, it’s a culinary match made in heaven.
Dubbed “the unofficial mayor of St. Clair West”, the owner and employer Albert Wiggan is also stalwart of our community, after being receiving a Good Neighbor Award in 2018, an accolade recognizing outstanding citizens in Canada.
The food at Albert’s, when all is said and done, is truly terrific. And visiting should be a right of passage for any peckish St. Clair residents who want an authentic taste of what makes our community so amazing to live in.
Available for takeout and delivery everyday, please visit at 542 St. Clair Ave W, or give them a call at 416-658-9445. Their menu can be found here – but call to ensure all transactions go straight to Albert’s Real Jamaican Food. Enjoy!
