Question about: Popular Jamaican Foods
Hi, what are the most popular foods to eat in Jamaica?
Answer by Wellesley
Thanks for visiting and double thanks for asking!
I take it that you are looking to vacation in Jamaica or visit Jamaica soon, am I right?
Either way, it looks like you want to get a taste, yes pun intended, of the rich Jamaican culture through the food, and I am excited to share!
If you know anything about the history or culture of Jamaica, you'd know that we enjoy a rich blend of cultures, English, Spanish, Dutch, French, African, Chinese, Indian, Syrian etc.
And that heritage translated 'sweetly' in our foods today.
So without further ado, here is a list of 39 of our most popular Jamaican foods, and certainly what I'd recommend as must eat foods in Jamaica for a visitor or tourist.
These are what I consider signature Jamaican foods!
Note: To learn more about each of the foods, simply click on each.
By the way, you can see me showing off many of these foods on my YouTube Channel
And if you need the recipes, we have dedicated an entire page to free Jamaican recipes here
