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!
