Unless you have jerk chicken, your trip to Jamaica is not perfect. The best place to get real jerk is Scotchies. When you arrive, you may see a 20-foot line, but trust us. This is one of the best places to get a taste of history going with your spicy meal. The method of smoking meat from Jamaican Allspice tree roots came from an indigenous community that was the first inhabitant of the island a few years ago. Order freshly baked bread crumbs, fried dumplings called festivals, and a iced cold red striped beer.


It’s hard to imagine finding real Italian food on an island 5,000 miles from Italy, but Toscanini is as close as the real one. Owned and operated by the Ricci brothers, this restaurant is the perfect combination of great food and service. Regular customers know that leaving a restaurant for dessert without having their professional roles is a sin. The decadent cream puff is coated with the restaurant’s special dark chocolate sauce and is perfect for any meal.

M-10 Bar and Grill

The M-10 is a hotspot for anyone looking for quality food at a reasonable price in a lively place. The bar menu is about as wide as the dining menu and is popular during happy hour, especially on Friday nights. The atmosphere is casual and electric, so Kingston residents can forget about 9-5 work worries and enjoy cold beer and coconut water. Seafood lovers can’t miss the all-you-can-eat crab night at the restaurant every Tuesday. You choose curry, spicy, garlic, and sweet and sour crabs and serve a variety of dishes, from traditional rice and peas to potato wedges.


Hidden in the hills of the gorgeous Blue Mountain Range is EITS Café, an acronym for “Summer in Europe.” The restaurant is a refreshing escape from Kingston’s intolerable heat and noise, combining the pinnacle of Jamaican and European cuisine. The restaurant is known for its farm-to-table approach, sourcing all crops from its own organic garden. Under the covered outdoor veranda, your table overlooks a magnificent view of the canopy of the lush forest. You may hear a soft pattern of rain on the roof. Or locals may hear the gentle beats of reggae playing a few miles down the road. No matter what, you will always have an experience to remember.

Aunt Mel’s Fish Place

Locals know more about food than on the beach on a Sunday trip to Hillshire Beach. Hillshire Beach is the beach of the city of Kingston and has the best fried fish on the island. The best of the best is at the location of Aunt Mel’s fish. Customers have a unique experience of picking whole fish from the morning catch igloo. The most popular dish is fried fish, which can be eaten with “festivals” and cassava bread. Sit under their thatched patio and step into the sand while eating your perfectly cooked fish and lobster.
