PORT ANTONIO, JAMAICA – So the idea of the day was to go to Moore Town – which is a Maroon town, and to find some food. There wasn’t too much happening in Moore Town, so we headed down to Port Antonio, and went to the market, at some Jamaican street food in Port Antonio, and then continued on to have a lovely dinner on the waterfront.

Moore Town – Moore Town is one of the Maroon towns in the mountains of Jamaica. Maroons are formerly enslaved African descendents who went into the mountains and forests. I was interested to learn more about the Maroons, their culture, and see if it was possible to find any local food. It was a little quiet, but it still was a good experience to walk around the town a little bit, and Matt, Ras Mokko, and I had a good little walk to the waterfall.
Port Antonio – After visiting the waterfall, we continued back driving to Port Antonio, to the nearest main city on the coast. Ras Mokko directed us first to the outdoor open air market where we sampled some fruits. My favorite was a star apple – a fruit I tried for the first time.
Country Style Restaurant – Port Antonio – We had a quick lunch of some beef stew and rice at a small restaurant on the outskirts of the market. Price – about 600 JMB ($4.35)
We then explored Port Antonio, Jamaica, for a few minutes, and came across a man selling jerk pan pork, a huge and temping grill full. There was no way we could resist. So we got some of his jerk.
Tee’s Events & Catering – Then for dinner we headed to a small and friendly restaurant on the coast called Tee’s Events and Catering. The owner was really nice. We ordered some Jamaican steamed fish and escovitch fish, both of which were delicious.
Another great day in Jamaica, Jamaican food, and a fantastic time to hang out with Ras Mokko and Matt from Ras Kitchen.
