Lino Caboso has been serving jerk chicken and rum punch at Rudie’s Jerk Shack in Canary Wharf since it opened in March 2021, one of several pop-up food stalls in Reuters Plaza, around the corner from the tube station and a park.This time last year, it was pretty quiet. “We had [less than] 100 customers a day when we opened a year ago.” Speaking on a hot June Thursday, he checks the till and finds that he has already done 600 orders.
