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.
We try and source all of our ingredients locally and organically, if we don’t have it on location, and providing it is in season, Cooky will pop down to Papine Market and is happy to take any guest who would like to see the wide range of Jamaican produce on display.
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.
