    Default What is your favorite Jamaican Food?

    We'll be at CN in October (our 2nd visit) and I want to experience as much of the Jamaican cuisine as possible this visit. My husband can't wait for the Curried Goat! What is your favorite Jamaican dish? Thanks in advance!

    I never eat lamb at home. At Couples it is delicious. They know how to do it right.

    The jerk chicken is not as good as it used to be. The patties are still wonderful. Try it....you'll like it.

    Patties, preferably beef, but the ackee patties at Pushcart are to die for! The curried goat at Cosmo's is super yummy too.

    Jerk Chicken! If you ever have an opportunity, go to Scotchies in either Ocho Rios or Montego Bay. Hands down, best jerk chicken I've ever had in my life! (No offense Couple's but Scotchies locations have real jerk pits) Also have a beef pattie. (No they're not burgers) Its the Jamaican version of a pasty. My mouth is watering in anticipation....25 days till we go home again!

    I can't honestly pick just one. But if I had to list them, in no particular order - jerk chicken & pork, ackee & saltfish, bammy, festival, curried goat, Ting, and Overproof.

    The pumpkin soup is delicious....as well as the jerk chicken. But I have to say, Jamaicans make the best fried chicken I have ever had.....I don't know what they do to it or what they fry it in, but WOW!!! I am excited to try Chicken Lavish when we are there in November....I have heard it is the best fried chicken on the island.
