Yam Centre

On Route A2 in Manchester, just west of Mandeville , W. of Mandville
Manchester , Jamaica

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).
