Jamaica’s capital city is a melting pot of people and cuisines. You can find just about anything there. From Lebanese to Venezuelan cuisine Kingston restaurants have tongues wagging for more than just their delicious dishes. Restaurant goers are talking about the complete experience. It’s about the food as much as it’s about the ambience, location and Instagram worthiness. Here’s my list of 5 hot restaurants in Kingston that customers can’t stop posting about.
