What you'll do

Most visitors to Jamaica have never experienced authentic Jamaican food, and they don't even know what to try or which restaurant to visit while in Jamaica - which is problematic. PORTIONS is a dining experience that offers visitors and foodies the opportunity to SAMPLE a variety of Jamaican dishes in one setting.

"Small portions of food. Taste them all. Choose your favorite."

FIRST we will meet up at the "Palms Entertainment Park" on Bogue Road, Montego Bay and be greeted with a tropical refreshment and the magnificent view of the Bogue Hill residential mountain that towers over the community. We will chat about the Jamaican culture and cuisine, and learn common Jamaican phrases.

SECOND, we will taste small portions of local favorites, like jerk chicken, jerk pork, bammy, festivals (fried dumplings), fried plantain, THE BEST Jamaican fried chicken drizzled in pineapple chicken gravy, brown stew chicken, curry chicken, curry turkey neck, and rice and peas. And depending on the season curry goat, cow foot, soup, ackee and saltfish (national dish) and many more.

FINALLY, guests will also experience Jamaican pastries and deserts (yummy!).

Other things to note: Experience can happen rain or shine!
Although complimentary water will be provided, you may bring extra hydration if desired. Bring cash if you would like to purchase alcohol from our bar.

Wah Gwaan mi peeple?! I am excited to introduce, PORTIONS, my specially tailored food-sampling experience! Born in Jamaica, I work within the Jamaican Tourism industry as a tour guide and as the proud owner of Stanhope Tours. Over the past few years, my guests ALWAYS ask me to take them to authentic restaurants, and I welcome opportunities to show them my favorite restaurants, where they are blown away by the tastes of Jamaica. Because of this observation, I've carefully crafted the ultimate Jamaican food sampling experience. I have built solid relationships with several local restaurants, with whom I've worked with to create sample dishes with small portions of staple foods for my guests to try. These samplings ARE NOT sold on the menu- so this is truly a one-of-a kind experience!

This was an awesome tour. Floyd-Stan is very knowledgeable about the history of Jamaica. Stan took us around the outskirts of Montego Bay and we were able to sample some AMAZING food. We went to a place called Chicken and more- it was the BEST fried chicken I’ve ever had (even better than fried chicken in Korea) . I highly recommend this tour, you well be exposed to good food and good vibes. #Bless

I would highly recommend this tour while in Jamaica. He was very friendly and personable throughout this whole experience . He also recommended some other places for us to try while in Jamaica and they were amazing.

Floyd was an excellent guide who took us to amazing, local spots that we would have never been able to experience otherwise. Floyd accommodated my pescatarian dietary request and made sure I had plenty to eat. In addition to the tasty snack pack he started us with, he also brought some unique tropical fruit for us to sample and bring back with us. Floyd took us through various communities of Montero Bay and told us all about its history. He also drove us through the market areas and offered for us to stop and walk around. He was a super cheerful and informative guide and we’d highly recommend booking with him during your stay! You will certainly have a great time, learn a lot, eat amazing food and get your moneys worth. Thanks Floyd!

I love to eat, clearly! This was perfect and gave me a chance to experience some local restaurants that I'd otherwise never come across. I enjoyed all the food and the yummy snacks given at the beginning. I also enjoyed the walk through the market downtown. Again, not something I would've done otherwise. Floyd was great, easy conversation and he is very passionate about his work. Would love to experience his new venture.
