After hotel pickup, your Montego Bay food tour starts as you meet your guide set off on your culinary adventure around the area, learning about authentic Jamaican food made within local communities.
You might try jerk chicken, one of the most common dishes eaten in Jamaica, with jerk stands found along the sides of roads. Learn about the term 'jerk' and how it refers to both the way the chicken (or pork, fish, or goat) is grilled and the seasoning itself. Jerking has changed over the years from pit fires to cooking over barrels filled with charcoal.
Other dishes you'll try may include grilled fresh fish; fruit from one of the many stands on the side of the road selling bananas, pineapples, mangoes, watermelon, coconut, or sugarcane; a quick meal known as a Jamaican patty, a flaky pastry with different fillings, most commonly seasoned ground beef, known as a beef patty (other fillings might include shrimp, veggies, lobster, or cheese); and coco bread, which is made with a hint of coconut and is a bit starchy and sweet, often paired with a patty.
When your tour is over, you'll be returned to your pickup location.
