Good Jamaican Fast Food

Mother's is know for its patties. These are varied from beef, chicken and vegies. The ice cream is also good. Patties are one Jamaica's favourite fast food and are usually enjoyed with a soda or a cold Red Stripe beer. Mother's does make a good patty.

If you compare the patties at mother's to those at Juici Patties, Mother's does not even compare. Cost is equivalent however the taste and quality is not even close.

After staying at Carib, we actually left the car and walked to Mother's for breakfast. Really fair prices and authentic Jamaican breakfast is what we were looking for, and we found it. If you eat at local places, you will save a bundle and you will really be getting the "real deal". Try some calaloo and fried dumpling, with ackee... More
