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.
