Whatever fillings you choose, Jamaican patties are definitely something to try when you are visiting Jamaica. A warning though- they are highly addictive!

RICE AND PEAS
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.

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
