Jamaica Ranked Second In Top Ten National Dishes In The World

Ackee Tree

Ackee Tree

Every country, I believe has a national dish, which is a joy and pride of that country. A national dish can be a meal or perhaps a snack that is native to that country. Jamaica's national dish is ackee and saltfish (codfish). We love this meal and it may be eaten with whatever food you so desire, especially with roast breadfruit.


I was very pleased to see that our national dish ranked second in the top ten national dishes in the world by National Geography in their book, entitled, "Food Journeys of a Lifetime." This is great news for a small country as ours and I am proud that representatives of National Geography saw it fit to pay such homage to our ideal dish.

Ackee is also our national fruit and the ackee leaves may be used as herbal medicine for various ailments.

See below one of our folk songs written in our Jamaican dialect (Patois), entitled "Mi carry mi ackee go a Linstead Market"

Mi carry mi ackee go a Linstead Market
Not a quattie worth sell
Mi Carry me ackee go a Linstead Market
Not a quattie worth sell

Lawd what night, not a bite
What a Saturday night
Lawd what a night not a bite
What a Saturday night

Everybody come feel up, feel up
Not a quattie worth sell
Everybody come feel up, feel up
Not a quattie worth sell

Lawd what night, not a bite
What a Satiday night
Lawd what a night not a bite
What a Satiday night


Do mi mommy nuh beat mi kill mi
Sake a Merry-go-round
Do mi mommy don’t beat me kill
Sake a American rum

Lawd what night, not a bite
What a Satiday night
Lawd what a night not a bite
What a Saturday night

All di pickney dem a linga linga
Fi weh dem mumma no bring
All di pickney dem a linga linga
Fi weh dem mumma no bring

Lawd, what a night, not a bite
What a Satiday night
Lawd, what a night, not a bite
How di pickney gwine feed?
