It isn’t hard to find jerk in Jamaica – particularly in Montego Bay, where the area’s main highway on the way to Ocho Rios is filled with roadside jerk shacks, led by the world-famous Scotchie’s.
But there’s one shack in the heart of Montego Bay’s Rose Hall district that’s also worth the stop.
It’s called Sun & Fun Jerk, and it has the added benefit of being set in one of Montego Bay’s greatest shopping destinations, the Shoppes at Rose Hall.
Unlike many of the roadside stops, however, it’s a comfortable, bright and breezy space, with a large bar and a wide selection of jerk: fish, pork, chicken and even lobster.
The verdict? Very good jerk, particularly the ultra-tender chicken.
Even better? It’s across the way from one of the island’s top cigar destinations.
