A must if you're close by

This was one of the best dining experiences I've had... And I travel a lot! Not only the amazing vegan food, but the conversation as well. Providing us with coutural background on the dishes and where all the vegetables cane from.

This is a roadside stand on West End road. It is completely worth a stop, or even a trip if you have an interest in trying Ital food or are a vegetarian. We got soup and a selection of delicious curries with veggies and TVP served over rice in a half coconut shell (although there are limited quantities of coconut... More

We are not vegetarian, but were recommended the place which is opposite the Tensing Pen. We tried it and we just loved it. The colors, the textures, the nice chats with Kachina... It was really special. Fresh, tasty, unexpected. A great lesson of Jamaican cuisine.

Shadrock was super friendly and helpful. His food was delicious and very well made. He has pride in what he does and grows most of his ingredients on his organic farm. A small red food stand across from Tensing Pen resort, worth a stop.

Researching for our trip to Negril, I came upon Ras Rody's and thought my vegetarian mother and I (not vegetarian) should go have some lunch and try the food based on the excellent reviews. I wasn't convinced, thinking the food was probably going to be pretty good, but that I would miss the meat. Boy was I wrong!! Shadrock is... More

If you'r going through west end road eg. towards the lighthouse, barneys humming bird garden or Rick's cafe its a must! Although dining conditions are not 5* but it doesn't matter. Rody is a brilliant guy, not only his cooking is nice but he's also a great guy to chat with! Be sure to visit Rody for a quite early... More

Loved this place. Small roadside hut with a single bench cooking up delicious vegan ital food at lunchtime. Great conversation, authentic experience despite being so close to Negril, places like this makes us keep wanting to return to Jamaica :)

Shadrock treated us to an unforgettable Jamaican ital (vegan/organic) lunch. His food is full of flavor and he takes pride in his cooking process. Sit down and eat at his bench and he will tell you how he cooks it and where he comes from. Expect a great meal for $7, and I recommend getting a cup of soup too!... More
