The Best Jerk Chicken in Jamaica
Scotchies is THE place for jerk chicken in Jamaica. In a ramshackle hut, you'll find the chef cooking jerk chicken or pork underneath a steel drum. We waited for our meal at the wooden bar drinking Red Stripe, listening to Coldplay in the background. There's lots of thatched-roof huts inside and booths to hang out at. You get your food wrapped in tin foil. The jerk chicken and pork were moist and the sauce was hot. The best surprise, however, was "festival," a sweetened bread that we had alongside our meal. This is where all resort staff hang out, and I can see why. It was nice to see and taste Jamaica outside of the resort.
