What you'll do

FIRST we will meet behind Burger King on Jimmy Cliff Blvd (the Hip Strip) in MoBay where you will receive a bag of Jamaican snacks and local goodies (yummy!). NEXT, we will journey through downtown Montego Bay to sightsee the hustle and bustle of Jamaican locals. THEN, we will head to our first local restaurant for SAMPLES! Here we will taste small portions of local favorites, like jerk chicken and fried plantain. AFTERWARD, we will head over to the working class community of Bogue Village to SAMPLE THE BEST Jamaican fried chicken drizzled in pineapple chicken gravy. While waiting on our food with other locals, you will admire the huge residential mountain that towers over the community, and we will chat about Jamaican culture. NEXT, we will head to the last restaurant for final SAMPLES of Jamaican cuisine. This local restaurant has an amazing ocean view and we will indulge in jerk pork, brown stew chicken, curry chicken, rice and peas and curry goat, depending on the season. LASTLY, we will journey through downtown Montego Bay's busy Barnett Street and its famous open-air market venue. Guests will be given the chance to stop and take pics before returning to the pick-up point.

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!

Where you'll be

The FIRST restaurant that we will visit, has an open-air atmosphere where you can watch the chefs grilling your jerk chicken! The SECOND restaurant is located in a local Jamaican community with local vibes - it's one of my favorites! The THIRD restaurant is off the beaten path with a great ocean view. The market place is located in downtown Montego Bay - the total opposite of a resort and completely dominated with vendors, food and locals.
