I haven't had much in the way of Caribbean foods. What are some examples other than conch?

Caribbean cooking is quite colourful and diverse, varying from island to island, since there are technically over twenty (20) independent nations in the English speaking Caribbean alone.
Jamaica is probably one of the standout islands and the cuisine is equally unique- jerk chicken, curry goat, ackee and saltfish, ital stew, rice and peas, roast breadfruit, bammy, sweet potato pudding, grater cake, peanut drops, Irish moss are just a few of their indigenous foods.
Each island has a cadre of special dishes and recipes. Trinidad has doubles and bake and shark. St. Kitts has the mauby drink...it's definitely worth just picking an island and exploring their offerings...lots to learn and taste.

As a Jamaican, I would recommend our jerked chicken, with festivals and tongue-searing jerk sauce. We're of Indian descent, so we love the curried foods, with bammy and roti. If you want a liquid accompaniment, sorrel is always a good choice, or ginger beer.

There is also breadfruit, ackee, shrimp - found mostly in the southern regions of the island - mannish water (goat soup) and a whole host of diverse, interesting foods.
And in the end, we were all just humans... Drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.

I love jerk chicken! The only problem is that the places in the UK that make it tend to make it quite mild, which seems to miss the point...

I love Caribbean food. Especially jerk chicken. There is a place in Brooklyn NY that has the best. The restaurant is named Peppas. Try it with rice and peas if you're ever in Brooklyn. I also make my own jerk wings using Grace jerk seasoning? The hot one of course!! Dang...Now I'm hungry

I haven't had the opportunity to taste these foods. But I am a big fan of the Caribbean cricket team and would love to taste such food sometime. Anyone here from the lovely Caribbean? :)

Puerto Rican cuisine! I'm half Puerto Rican born and raised in Hawaii, so I while I didn't grow up with purely Caribbean cuisine, I've definitely had a mix of Puerto Rican and Hawaii-styled dishes. Especially pasteles, coquitos, tembleque, and gandule rice! <3

I’m from Florida and I have never had any type of Jamaican food. You’re probably saying she’s crazy; but after reading this post I most definitely have to try some.

I love jerk chicken all blackened and spicy. The best is making the seasoning yourself, not those bottle marinades, even though some of those are tasty. I worked with a fellow from Jamaica when I was younger and got to try jerk chicken made by his mother, wow! Never have been able to duplicate it. I love ginger beer too.
