Nyam and Jam Sport Bar & Pool Lounge

This no-frills eatery at the edge of the Craft Market serves up delicious, uncomplicated fare, some items listed on the menu as simply "fish", with no further detailing - trust the chef (who also takes the orders while hard at work) to deliver. Food is consistently good and significantly cheaper than at some tourist hot spots.


Jerked meat is ubiquitous in Montego Bay as much as the rest of Jamaica, deliciously juicy chunks of chicken and pork (and on occasion, shrimp and fish) served up at street-side stands and at "jerk centres" - casual eateries with jerked meats as their speciality. Side orders often include deep-fried bammy (flatbread), festival fritters, rice and peas.
