The best spot to eat out in Savanna-la- Mar, Guango’s Jerk (11:30am-11pm Sun.-Thurs., 11:30am-midnight Fri.-Sat., US$7-25) has a well-prepared menu featuring Jamaica’s favorite seasoned meat. The jerk chicken is served with perfectly crispy skin, the festival is just the right consistency and sweetness, the rep peas soup delicious, and the beer cold. Fish is also served in brown stew, fried, steamed, or roast. Specials include oxtail, stew peas, curry goat, and mannish water.
Savanna La Mar and Vicinity
Along the route from Negril to Savanna-la-Mar, the hills open up a few kilometers east from the beach to vast alluvial plains along Cabarita River that sustain Jamaica's largest sugarcane crop, processed at Frome. Small communities like Negril Spot and Little London dot the route and offer little excuse to stop. A turn off the main road in Little London leads to Little Bay, one of Jamaica's most laid-back beach towns, which is predominantly the keep of small-scale fishermen.
Hammond's Pastry Place (18 Great George St., 8 a.m.\6:30 p.m Mon.\Fri., closing at 8:30 p.m on Saturday) serves patties, cakes, and deli sandwiches.
