A street side cafe with limited seating. Everything is vegan and when possible, organic. Eco-friendly business. Try the veg plate which consisted of a reggae stew of yams, carrots and other veggies, a serving of callaloo (the local greens), a serving of curried vegetables and a cabbage dish prepared in coconut milk, all on a bed of what's locally known as peas & rice, a combination of rice and small red beans.

Just returned from another trip to Negril which always means another trip for dinner at Ras Rody's. One of the things I love about this place is that I am, or we are, the only non-Jamaican(s) there. They say everything is organic and fresh and it certainly tastes like it. It's vegan food at its Jamaican best. Yes, the stand is a bit hard to find, on the west end of Negril, and yes, seating is limited, but those are not really issues for me.

This trip, I sat beside an older Rasta man who said he was the Doctor. He said he maid herbal remedies for what ever ailed you and he did this for his community there. He said nature provided plants that could cure cancer, diabetes, ED, on and on. He claimed to have been vegan all his life, eating Ital, and had never been sick. He said he was nearing 80, but, except for some gray and white in his dread locks, he could have easily passed for 55. It's never dull at Ras Rody's. Rody himself is not always there, but the food is in good hands. His son and daughter take care of the stand in his absence. Don't let the rustic location deter you. It's an experience you will talk about for a long time once you return home. I think my tab has never been more than $8 and that's for the full meal. Tourists will stay on the compound at Sandal's , etc, but travelers will seek out and be well-pleased by Ras Rody's

Pros: Authentic, healthy, delicious

Ras Rody is a hard working Rasta who serves up a delicious ITAL meal from his roadside stand. There are a few seats and some stimulating conversation. The night I was there there were three youths hanging around on their bicycles looking bored. They were friendly and I asked if they were hungry. Of course they were so I had Rody fix them a go meal - a large styrofoam cup filled with rice and beans and curried veggies in a coconut sauce. They were very appreciative. The bill - $18US for mine, the wife and the three boys. While we were there the Rasta Elder "Herb Man" came by selling all kinds of fresh herbs and spices on his cart. All straight from the earth and fresh. I bought some jerk spice blend - great stuff. If you love the local west end scene then it doesn't get better than this. Good food, good vibe... Ya Mon!

Pros: Healthiest food in Negril, One Love Rasta Vibe, Inexpensive
Cons: two steps off your stool and you'll be r, some seasons and times not open - call, Nearly same 3 dishes every time
