"Roadside yam and salt fish is featured at Melrose What You'll Find by the Roadside in Jamaican Cooking Hill on the road to Mandeville in Manchester, a famous roadside stop where cars pull over to be greeted by someone holding a piece of brown paper underneath a chopped, roasted yam and a small piece of grilled salt fish. It's eaten by taking a bite of roasted yam and nibbling off a tiny piece of the grilled, salted fish. The soft, smooth-textured yam is a perfect taste counterpoint to the chewy salt fish. The yams look like large logs sitting on top of the fire. Hanging from the rafters Over the grill are fresh ears of corn, which are husked and roasted directly over the fire."
