Jamaican Food
by Eboni B. aka "Reds" & Jonathan Bell



Dead fi hungry? Well look no further in Los Angeles. Jamaican restaurants have good selections on the menu. On Sundays, some offer an all-you-can-eat deal per plate that ranges from $6-$15(US) depending on where you dine. Here's a few:

  • Coleys Kitchen
  • Stone's Market & Bakery
  • Milton's
  • Joe's Restaurant
  • Jerk Pitt
  • Jucy's Restaurant & Market
  • Derricks


Market Place
If you don't want to dine out, many of the larger commercial supermarkets in Los Angeles carry Caribbean products such as plantains, chocho, coconut, papaya, mango, thyme, oxtail and fish and even jerk seasoning. Some produce may be a little harder to find. There are smaller privately owned markets and bakeries within the communities that carry items like Ting®, bammy, sorrel, hard dough bread, ackee and bread fruit but it may cost a little more.

Along with food the smaller grocery markets also provide Western Union & Money Gram Service if you'd like to send money home, as well as phone cards with special rates to Jamaica. Also, barrels are sold normally in four different sizes and shipping services are provided as well.

Akka's Market, Jucy's and Stone's Market are places to get all those things one misses from home: Irish moss, spices, scotch bonnet peppers, chocolate balls, salt fish, goat meat, green banana, yams, D&G beverages and so much more! Unfortunately, fresh ackee is impossible to come by in LA but they do have the canned variety and callaloo too. You can also find a variety of Jamaican produce & spices being sold in neighborhood markets that carry Spanish/Latino/Mexican products. There is also downtown LA's Grand Central Market that has a wide variety of fresh produce, fish and meats!
