Scotchie’s is a must if you’re going to be in Montego Bay! The jerk pork is our favorite! You won’t get jerk like this any where else!! The festival is always delicious. Cute place & good service.

Even though I stay at an all-inclusive resort I always make sure I go to Scotty’s for their jerk pork. I absolutely love it and my friends love the jerk chicken.

I had the jerk pork, corn and festival!! My girls had the chicken. We enjoyed it all. Could have gotten a Lil more bang for the buck but, nevertheless, I enjoyed it. So good, I forgot to get a pic of the food. Lol
