Must-Try Foods, While in Jamaica

25 Jan

If you are visiting Jamaica, a to-do-list is absolutely necessary. Chances are you are planning on going to the beach, chatting with the locals, learning more about the Jamaican culture or eating up a storm. Speaking of eating, Jamaica has a wide range of foods that are exclusive or unique to the island. The spices and the different seasonings are combined to whet your appetite and tantalize your taste buds.
Here is a list of some Jamaican food that you have to try, while you are enjoying your vacation in Jamaica.



Ackee, which happens to be Jamaica’s national fruit, is most times combined with saltfish (or codfish) to produce a savory meal which is spicy and salty (not too salty) all at the same time. The dish is also visually appealing as well, as the ackee, which is bright yellow, is surrounded by the seasonings of tomato and green peppers. It is mostly served with festivals or fried dumplings. Although traditionally eaten as a breakfast item, fanatics of this special dish will eat it any time of the day.



Patties are probably Jamaica’s unofficial meal for lunch. This golden-yellow, half-moon shaped food has a flaky crust on the outside and juicy seasoned fillings on the inside. The fillings vary from beef, cheese or chicken to vegetable, shrimp or ackee. (Yes, ackee patties exist). Whatever fillings you choose, Jamaican patties are definitely something to try when you are visiting Jamaica. A warning though- they are highly addictive!



A signature dish for a Jamaican Sunday dinner, rice and peas is great with any type of meat. The unique flavor comes from the gungo/pigeon peas, coconut milk, thyme and escallion. Scotch bonnet peppers can also be added if you want it a bit spicy. If you have tried rice and peas before, then you have definitely experienced one of the most important dishes in the Jamaican cuisine.



Another very popular meal is the Jamaican jerk chicken or pork. Although they are different methods of preparing this meal (meat smoking, with wood burning ovens or barrels filled with charcoals), the spices that contribute to the wonderful and unique taste are the same. These spices include: scotch bonnet peppers, cloves, escallion, thyme, garlic, ginger and salt. Jamaican or not, don’t miss out on the island’s famous jerk – have it alone or with festival, rice and peas or bread.



A wonderful Jamaican Dessert, the bread pudding is definitely a must have while in Jamaica. Popularly made with days old white or wheat bread, the bread pudding owes its sweet taste to the combined mixture of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, coconut milk and raisins. A tip of Jamaican rum is also sometimes included. It is also easy to make, so you can try baking it for yourself.

    Needed to draft you this little observation to say thanks a lot yet again for these incredible things you have documented here. It is really wonderfully open-handed of people like you to grant openly just what a lot of people might have offered for sale as an e-book in order to make some profit for themselves, chiefly considering the fact that you could possibly have tried it in the event you decided. The advice also acted as the good way to fully grasp that the rest have similar fervor the same as my personal own to know the truth a great deal more with regards to this problem. I’m certain there are many more fun moments in the future for many who scan your blog post.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

    What i don’t understood is if truth be told how you’re not really a lot more smartly-favored than you may be right now. You’re very intelligent. You understand thus considerably with regards to this matter, produced me in my opinion believe it from a lot of various angles. Its like men and women are not fascinated until it’s something to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs excellent. At all times care for it up!

    but usually people don’t talk about these topics. To the next!
    Many thanks!!

    Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any suggestions?

  47. house cleaning Las Vegas December 4, 2019 at 8:02 am #

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. But think of if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this blog could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field. Good blog!

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.
