Pork Pit

Jerk in Montego Bay

At this glorified food shack on the Hip Strip, a half-roasted chef slaves over a blackened barbecue fashioned from pimento wood sticks laid over smoking hot coals. His meat-cooking travails send a delicious aroma wafting down Gloucester Ave and provide a perfect advert for the Pork Pit’s obligatory jerk pork (and jerk chicken). Eat it under the 300-year-old cotton tree.
