If you’re going to Jamaica, you have to try callaloo. It’s a dish made with greens and usually served as a stew.

Callaloo is usually cooked with onions, garlic, tomatoes, and spices like thyme, black pepper, and Scotch bonnet peppers. It’s a staple of Jamaican cuisine and it’s definitely something you should try if you’re in the country.

Breadfruit

While most people associate this tropical fruit with Asian dishes, it is actually quite popular in Jamaica as well. The flesh of the jackfruit is often used as a replacement for meat, so it is perfect for vegetarians and vegans.
