Visiting the Villas….But it’s all about the Jamaican Food!
When the sales team go to visit villas in Jamaica, we run around like mad inspecting villas! Yes we have our villas to inspect, we speak with the staff and to make sure we understand the layout of a villa, the advantages and disadvantages of any villa, the intricacies of every aspect of Jamaican villas…..we become like a villa encyclopedia in our Jamaican Treasures minds! However, there are certain things that are a must when we go to Jamaica. One of them is definitely about the food! We have travelled to a lot of Caribbean islands, but Jamaica has the best and most tasty food that we know!
My favorite dishes that I HAVE TO HAVE are:
- Stew Peas
- Escovitche Fish and onions, carrots, scotch bonnet pepper and vinegar sauce
- Roast Breadfruit / Fried Breadfruit
- Jerk pork
- Boiled corn like how they do it at Faith’s Pen!
- Curry Goat
- Curry Conch
My mom actually cooks all of these specialties at home and not to be biased but she is the best cook in the world! She has a passion for her cooking. But that means I am spoilt with good Jamaican food at a very high standard! When I got married, I tried to duplicate the same, but somehow the tastes just burst out more somehow when you have these dishes in Jamaica. We have been to all these restaurants and can highly recommend them to you!
