A great place to stop for a roadside snack, the Yam Centre is located west of Mandeville on Route A2. Built atop a small hill, the centre is a collection of 12 tiny food stalls with names like Graney Razor One Stop and Shine Head One Stop (owned by a bald man). The stalls specialize in homegrown yams, a Jamaican staple originally imported from West Africa. Here, the fresh yams are roasted, buttered, and served with grilled saltfish (salt cod).
Contrary to tradition, the saltfish is not soaked before it’s grilled, so the fish is still extremely salty; skip that part of the dish if this is an issue.
