Jamaica, Part III. Sweet Spice, Ice Cream.

A coworker or mine that visits Negril frequently, recommended that we stop by Sweet Spice for a meal. So we did, for breakfast, one very early Saturday morning. The restaurant was quite busy and there were only three “plate” options available. Liver, chicken curry, and ackee and saltfish.

Each order was accompanied by a side of cassava and one big flat boiled dumpling.

Zubair and I shared an order of the ackee and saltfish with callaoo, plantains and two fried dumpling (just dough, nothing inside…tasted akin to a savoury doughnut ^-^)…

…and the curry chicken which also came with callaoo and fried dumplings.

Post-breakfast, we satiated our sweet craving at the only ice cream shop in downtown Negril.

Pictured above, one scoop of fresh coconut ice cream. Then off for a day of cliff diving and jet skiing! :)

Happy Halloween!

    I imagine you've heard this a million times since you are in Jamaica but be careful eating ackee – it can be toxic and even fatal!

    Very nice food photos.@Anonymous – Ackees are okay as long as they are picked ripe i.e the pods have opened naturally. Its when the ackees are unripe that they are dangerous.

    but the question is, did the food taste good?
