The Jamaican motto ‘Out of Many One People’ sums up the ingredients and styles of cooking we use – a fusion of African, Indian, Spanish, & French with a little Chinese & Syrian to boot.”
To ‘nyam’ means to eat in Jamaican patois. Here at Lime Tree we believe that what you nyam is an important part of your Blue Mountain experience. Our local Jamaican chef, ‘Cooky’ will be tempting your taste buds with a full menu of assorted fayre, from Ackees for breakfast to fiery Jerk Chicken or Red Snapper for dinner. Wherever possible, all ingredients are local and organic.
