Montego Bay is a good place to sample ‘haute’ Jamaican food – fancy takes on traditional Caribbean cuisine – particularly along the Hip Strip and in Freeport. Cheaper local eats are found in Central MoBay, and after-sunset jerk stands spring up along the Hip Strip.

Quick Eats in MoBay

If you’re in a rush or on the cheap or both, meat patties are always a good snack that could double as a meal. In MoBay, it's the usual toss-up between the ubiquitous Juici Patties and the equally common Tastee Patty. There's also a good alfresco vegetarian place with I-tal Rasta food called Millennium Victory; look out for the colorful murals.
