A typical dish and one increasingly common outside of the area is "jerk" seasoned meats, commonly chicken. It is a unique, spicy flavor, remeniscient of creole, louisiana cooking, but still quite distinct from it.
Perhaps unique in Key West Florida is the conch fritter. The meat from the conch shell, a type of mollusc is chopped and mixed with a spiced breading and deep fried. Also seen were tasty alligator fritters, prepared similarly.
