Ackee and saltfish. Usually served anyone 1,2 or 3 or ALL of the following : boiled green bananas*, ripe* or green plantains, boiled dumplings* fried dumplings* re-fried dumplings, yam (yellow or white), sweet potato, irish potato, roti, cassava, dasheen coco, festival*, bammy, white rice, rice and peas, hard dough bread* * = the ones i like Let me add- pear (avocado), breadfruit and callaloo YES some folk will have their plate with all of the aboveCryCry

Jamaica's national dish is ackee and salt fish. Ackee, Sapida blighia, a fruit named after Captain William Bligh, who took the fruit from West Africa to Jamaica. Salt fish is a headless cod that is dried, then salted to increase flavour and shelf life.

Traditionally a breakfast food but it can be dinner or lunch. With breakfast you'd serve it with chocolate-tea, coffee-tea, milo-tea or tea-tea (tea = any hot beverage) and maybe some fresh orange juice, otaheite apple juice or even grapefruit juice, whatever fruit is in season.

Same dude from the Breadfruit Mutiny^^^^^

that ackee want more black pepper and i prefer smaller pieces of saltfishLOL

gallo pinto
Rice and black beans are a staple of most traditional Costa Rican meals, often served three times a day; gallo pinto, a breakfast dish of rice and beans mixed together with onions and bell peppers, is often considered the Costa Rican national dish.

It's a sauce that goes on fries and fried chicken. It's a DC/DMV thing. You generally get it at a chinese curryout.

From the dominican newsonline's article about the contest for the official national dish.- It presented the choices of callaloo, sancoche*, broth, fig and saltfish and titiwi*.

*= What are these? the callaloo prepared is a liquid?

NG i didnt want to scare y'all. That seems like a delicacy to me- they reside only at high altitudes, that means someone has to go far to fetch them, there's a five month open season, the frog is endemic to Dominica etc etc

Enti is like whe youre talking to a friend and you're both in agreeance so its rhetorical and you just attach enti to the end of your sentence.
Or when youre being condescending ...

enti sound like aint it? We use "eeh" just the same way. Dat gyal sound like a wounded dog eeeh? What a way the mango dem sweet eeh?

Just like Jamaican Patois it's a language which developed along the same linguistic path from xyz to pidgin to creole to xyx? Borne out of the need for the diff. African tribes/people to speak to each other and communicate with the English overseers/masters? We was dipping and dabbling to make fresh new languages in the space of no time yet still we're supposedly dunce? Under some seriously messed up conditions barely any food, no family and being beaten everydayConfused *long hiss teeth*

Jones can that sound cloud come with a few YT links and some paragraphs pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeBig smile please make it into a new topic as well.

I need to hear the accent. Cause that sounds just the same right there, except the "enti"

PrincessS i thought you were from Jamaica lol OMD itsdannie no we dont eat frog legs , i googled it lol
So when I went to Jamaica that is where I learned about "Mountain Chicken" and yes they eat it lol it really do taste like chicken

IS that what they also call "spring chicken"? It isn't a national dish and you'd be hard pressed to find it on the corner shop restaurant menu, most yardies would go YUCKKKKKK. But hey some will eat alligator and snake and iguana (all protected animals).

i didnt hear of a change. Thats all I've ever know. I'll have to doube check with my dad and step mom then.

I cant say I know anyone personally who has had it so idk why it was even an option the crab and calla loo makes much more sense. they do make it a staple on independence day. 

That what the Dominican news website said. lololol Princess i had edited the post and said it cant be sprat but it maybe what we call tiki-tiki (they will bite your toes in the river i cant remember the species name). But we refer to any small fish regardless of the species as tiki-tiki as well.

My African Massive where you at! Fu-Fu can be made out of almost any starch based veggie like yam, cassava, corn,etc.

OKay thanks NG, cause if it was ever from cornmeal only, i'd have to take it off the list.

^Fufu is kinda like breadfruit to me. It doesn't taste like anything but takes on the flavour of whatever you eat it with. Fufu without sauce is useless.

@good.... When I have company, I always make the arroz con pollo or garlic chicken.. People love it. When I'm feeling real lazy, i'll open up a some canned black beans and add some sofrito (homemade). Make a batch and freeze small baggies, comes in handy when needed.
