In 1655, the Spanish lost Jamaica to the English, who brought in their favorite traditions that are evident today. Their additions to the Jamaican cuisine helped developed many new dishes on the island (the most famous, currently, is the Jamaican pattie. The English also transformed much of the island into sugar plantations. When the slave trade was finally forbidden a century later many immigrants began to join the island as laborers from China and East India. The Indian influence brought many of the Indian spices into the mix – which is why Jamaica is very famous for spicy food to this day. Just about everything is made into curry – whether it be seafood, pork, goat, rice or anything the island has to offer. Jamaican curry is a wonderful eclectic mix. When you arrive at Esther's Jamaican Food, the centuries of tradition becomes immediately evident. Check out the entrees...and enjoy!
