Every culture has its popular cuisines that are enjoyed for different occasions, at different times of the year, and so forth. Jamaica is no different. Below, we introduce some of the most popular options among the Jamaican Traditional Cuisine offers.

Jamaican Oxtails and Beans

Jamaican Beef Patties

The Jamaican Patty is traditionally a spicy beef pie in a tender and flaky crust & is sought after worldwide; so much so they are frozen & exported to the US, Canada & England. The cocktail sizes are perfect for parties!. Other fillings used in Jamaican Patties include chicken, soy, ackee, lobster, cheese & shrimp but the beef still reigns supreme. Jamaican patties can be enjoyed by themselves or as some Jamaicans do with a freshly baked  ‘coco’ bread for a very filling meal
