Jamaica’s national dish

I was lucky enough to stumble upon my new favourite dish on my very first morning and was instantly hooked!

Ackee is the national fruit of Jamaica and when coupled with saltfish ‘codfish’ it becomes the national dish of Jamaica. Ackee and saltfish is often consumed with roasted or fried breadfruit, callaloo, boiled or fried dumplings, boiled yam, green banana, and many other ground provisions.

Without a doubt it is an absolute favorite food for many Jamaicans and its not because its the national dish. Its unmatched buttery taste and cheese like appearance makes it easy to love.

Is it still ok to book an AirBnb?!

Locals’ lives change drastically as prices rise and an increasing amount of living space is allocated to accommodate tourists.
