Just wondering if anyone knew how long of a walk Niah's Patties is from CSA. We hear great things about it there and also wondering about The Best In The West...location and ect. We have our favortie restaurnts that we always like to venture too ( Cosmos, Our Past-time, Sweet Spice...)but looking to try something new :) Any information would help out a lot!! Thanks a bunch! 21 days till we are home!! -Tiff
The original jerk tour:
From the south end of the resort, by the pool bar, walk around 2 miles to Bourbon Beach, back to Best In The West, and finish up at Ossie's; just 50 yards from CSA. Bring small mason jars for sauce, take a Pepcid early that morning, and taste the real Jamaican Jerk.
Bourbon Beach is around 2 miles from CSA. Bring a bottle of water or two, but there's Red Stripe available all the way up the beach. Bourbon Beach makes very good chicken, but marginal pork (if they have any at all.) They have a great brown sauce and the chef will give anyone 3 or 4 ounces in a small Mason jar. From Bourbon Beach, you walk back north about a mile to CocoLaPalm. Cross through their resort (everyone does it, no problem, mon) and you'll come out to Manley Boulevard. Best In The West is diagonally across the road. Cross carefully. Again, great chicken, probably the best of the three, and standard jerk sauce - Grays and Ketchup - but it's important to get a taste of the sauce used by 90% of the jerk shacks in Jamaica. Continue north on Manly Boulevard about 1/2 a mile and you'll come to Ossie's on the same side(you can see the south lobby of CSA from there - last photo.) Skip the chicken, but load up on the pork and make sure you use plenty of her green sauce! She will also give you 3 or 4 ounces of sauce, if there's any left, but it will cost a few bucks.
Fawnridge covered Best in The West and other good jerk spots so I"ll just try to help out on Niahs.
Niahs s is located in the Wavz lot,his stand is set back close to the road and not easy to spot from the beach so you'll have to keep a look out for it. I believe the Wavz lot is inbetween Nirvana(which is hard to miss) and Marsipo. If you get to the Boat Bar you've passed it. You also could keep an eye out for the carver Mason's stand,(his work is amazing) NIahs is set back in that same area.
