As a self-proclaimed foodie, I have traveled the world in search of the best cuisine. And I must say that my recent visit to the single best restaurant in Ocho Rios, Jamaica left a lasting impression on my taste buds. From the moment I walked in, I knew I would be delighted.
The atmosphere was lively, with the sounds of Caribbean music filling the air and the scent of exotic spices wafting through the room.

The Best Fried Chicken in Ocho Rios

And what a menu! The variety of dishes was overwhelming and they all sounded better than before. I started with the ‘Jamaican Fried Chicken’ and I have to say it was the best I’ve ever had. The chicken was cooked to perfection and the spices were perfectly balanced causing an explosion of flavors in my mouth.

Next came the ‘Curry Goat’ which was just as great as the chicken. Secondly, the goat was slow cooked to perfection and the curry sauce was rich and flavorful. Subsequently, the combination of spices was exquisite and I couldn’t help but take a bite. But the real star of the show was the Secret sauce, a gravy unlike any I’ve ever tried. That being the case, it was an amalgamation of flavors that were perfectly combined to create a unique and satisfying taste. As a result, it was the highlight of my meal and I will be dreaming about it for days to come.

Unbelievable Soup de Jour

And to top off this wonderful meal, I tried the ‘chicken foot soup’. To say nothing of the explosion in my mouth would be an injustice. To begin with, the base is made of pumpkin. As a result, it’s very thick and creamy but without the additives. Because of this, your taste buds explode due to the natural flavors contained in the pumpkin. What is more is that I ordered it without any food (soup only). That being the case, it was fabulous just the same.

And so, my visit to ‘Simply The Best Restaurant’ in Ocho Rios was a true culinary adventure. Hence, the food was excellent, the atmosphere was lively and the service was top notch. Granting that you’re a foodie like me, I highly recommend adding this restaurant to your bucket list. With this in mind, you won’t be disappointed.
