This private food tasting tour was created out of requests from many guests who were interested in eating authentic Jamaican food cooked within the local communities. After pickup from your Montego Bay hotel you will travel from your resort and make several stops along the way to try a variety of different fruits, drinks, Jamaican patties and more!

These are some examples of the foods that you may enjoy on this tour:

Jerk Chicken
Jerk chicken is one of the most common types of food eaten on the island. You can find “jerk stands” set up all along the sides of the roads when driving around the island.

The term “jerk” refers to both the spice rub and the way the chicken (fish, pork, or goat) is cooked. The technique of jerking, has evolved over time from using pit fires to now using old oil barrel halves. Around the 1960′s a more portable method came up with a solution to cut oil barrels lengthwise and attach hinges, drilling several ventilation holes for the smoke. These barrels are fired with charcoal, which enhances the spicy, smoky taste.

Fresh Grilled Fish
Something unique about living on a tropical island, is that when you are hungry for some fish, you can simply dive in the water and get your dinner, which is exactly what you will be doing on this tour. Enjoy the freshest local varieties of fish grilled to perfection.

Jamaican Fruit Stands
Jamaica is known for its amazing assortment of fruits that are grown all over the island. As you drive around, you will see many stands along the side of the road selling a variety of different fruits and vegetables that are grown from local farms.

You will get to stop along the way and do a tasting of some of the different fruits such as mangoes, bananas, oranges, pineapples, watermelons, and more! Although many of these fruits can be found other places other than Jamaica, they taste different when they are all natural. You will also stop to get some fresh sugar cane or coconuts along the way.

Patty & Coco Bread
A Jamaican patty is a common quick meal in Jamaica. The Jamaican patty is a flaky pastry, often a golden yellow color and filled with a variety of different fillings. The most common filling is seasoned ground beef – known as a “beef patty”. Other common fillings are chicken, vegetables, shrimp, lobster, fish and cheese.

The patty is often paired with coco bread. The bread has a hint of coconut, a bit starchy and sweet and paired together is a mouth watering meal. There are several well know patty shops along the island and you will stop to get your choice of patty and coco bread along the way.
