Slideshow SLIDESHOW: Snapshots from Jamaica: Jerk Chicken and Pork at Scotchies

[Photograph: Chichi Wang]

On a brief trip to Jamaica last month I spent the better part of three days swimming, eating tropical fruits and fried foods, and napping (in that order). We left the compound only once for a jerk chicken excursion at Scotchies in Montego Bay.

Scotchies was my kind of eating. Everything grilled was served in foil, you ate with your fingers off of paper plates, and the juicy pork and chicken came with bottles of hot sauce made from scotch bonnet peppers (some of the spiciest peppers you can ingest without hurting yourself).

About the author: Chichi Wang took her degree in philosophy, but decided that writing about food would be much more fun than writing about Plato. She firmly believes in all things offal, the importance of reading great books, and the necessity of three-hour meals. If she were ever to get a tattoo, it would say "Fat is flavor."
