Jamaica is arguably best known for its white sandy beaches and reggae music, but the island is also deservedly famous for its cuisine. Be sure to try local specialties such as ackee and saltfish, Ital cuisine (a natural diet free from meat, additives and chemicals), curried goat and patties – be it at corner shops, beach shacks or the fine dining restaurants that dot the island. And if, heaven forbid, you don’t develop a taste for spiced Jamaican fare, there’s an array of international dining options in the main tourist towns as well as the all-inclusive resorts.

The Mal bar and brasserie draws in guests and locals alike, while rooms – which squeeze in fun touches such as hanging wine glasses – will suit anyone up for some cosmopolitan cool.”

Enviably situated on a corner of Bellenden Road (aka Posh Peckham), it is a welcome addition to the burgeoning SE15 scene.
