If you love jerk chicken, you must make your way to Kingston. The chicken is always cooked over charcoal and green pimento wood, both of which infuse the chicken with a distinct smoky flavor. The meat is rubbed with all-spice and Scotch bonnet pepper, and the whole meal is usually served with a side of peas and rice.

Of course, that’s not all you can get in the city. Delicious curry abounds, and festival bread is a common late-night snack as well as savory beef patties.
It’s also not uncommon to encounter a variety of Asian flavors in the various sichuan chicken dishes that are common.
Clearly, you have a lot of traveling to do!
While you can certainly explore the tastes, flavors, and cultures within a city through its restaurants, you don’t want to miss out on the street food. Not only will you usually be able to eat inexpensively, you’ll also encounter foods you won’t find anywhere else.
Additionally, you’ll get a much higher variety by moving from vendor to vendor rather than eating at a single restaurant.
So what are you waiting for? Get out there and start eating!
