One of the main reasons that lure holidaymakers to the Caribbean, in particular Jamaica is the delicious Jamaican food. Whether it is the famous Jamaican jerk chicken or the curried goat, you will be sure to find something that you love. Here are the top 5 foods in Jamaica that you must try:

Jamaican beef patty/cocoa bread

You would have probably tasted the international version of Jamaican beef patty but nothing can beat the original patty. The beef patty is crust filled with a wide range of different flavours. It is similar to turnovers but has a greater taste and flavour. Traditional fillings include beef, chicken and various seafood such as shrimp or lobster. This can help form part of a Jamaican meal and is often eaten alongside cocoa bread.

Curry chicken or goat

Using curry spice in dishes is very popular particularly in South Asia. Jamaican food is also spiced up; curried goat is a local tradition and is usually at important family events of functions. This dish is generally served with rice and peas but can also be served with coconut and raisins to give that tangy option. Traditional Jamaican families sometimes raise goats with the sole purpose to use them for a special family occasion.

Roast breadfruit

Breadfruit can be combined with coconut milk as a favourite dessert and is commonly found on the majority of Jamaica’s food menus. This fruit is mixed with other ingredients such as butter or sugar and baked under an open fire. Different combinations of ingredients are used to develop the breadfruit’s taste which makes a hit amongst locals.

Jerk Chicken

Jerk chicken is amongst the most popular dishes in the US, but wait until you sample the traditional Jamaican Jerk Chicken! The name originally comes from the Jamaican jerk spice, a spicy sauce that is used to marinate the chicken. More traditional Jamaican restaurants also offer jerk beef, but without a doubt the Jamaican jerk chicken continues to be the most popular choice. The spicy mixture is formed through the use of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, thyme, garlic, pepper and nutmeg which give the Jamaican jerk chicken its unique flavour.

Ackee and Saltfish

To truly experience Jamaica, you have to sample Jamaica’s national dish, Ackee and Saltfish is very popular amongst the locals. The seed pod of the Ackee fruit is combined with saltfish or occasionally codfish along with boiled bananas. This dish looks more like scrambled eggs but once you have tasted its unique flavour you will be begging for more.
