What to eat - Jamaica Holidays

Jamaica's food reflects the principle of "Out of many, one people". Different people from varied cultures have contributed to the Jamaican culinary art. Its diet is surprisingly varied from fiery jerk meat, the island's best food to its tasty seafood and vegetarians can relish on sautéed cabbage and carrots with rice and peas.

The restaurants at Jamaica come under two types. The first one is mainly managed by locals and presents a limited menu of West Indian delicacies. On the other hand, tourist restaurants have a menu that is well suited for American and European palates. Jamaicans gorge the highly addictive Ackee and saltfish at the breakfast. Chicken and fish remain the main hot dishes for lunch and dinner. Seafood is one of the Jamaican delights with tasty fresh lobster and it regularly features on every well known restaurant menu. Patties are their well known snack and they prefer bun and cheese combo. They also like taking foods at roadsides and they never miss out a cup of fish tea during long journeys. Its water is safe to drink and locally bottled spring water is available everywhere. Relish its Blue Mountain coffee that is one of the best and most expensive in the world. Its national beer is the finest Red stripe, which is refreshing and has less alcoholic content. For a change, you can sip a glass of Heineken.
