A wealth of exotic options
National dish ackee and saltfish, pumpkin soup, bammy, festival and the catch of the day, baked plantain, home-made ice cream or coconut pie for dessert, Red Stripe and Appleton rum - Jamaican food is a joy to try. Or just ask Myrtle for your favourite dishes.
A visit to the main Port Antonio market with Myrtle on a Friday or Saturday can provide an insiders’ look into daily Jamaican life.
For a taste of Europe, our neighbour Vera from Belgium makes delicious pastries, cheesecakes and croissants. Ask us before 6pm for delivery the next day so we can call in time.
