Lonelyplanet.com has listed The Rock's jerked pork among the best street foods in the world. In an article released on the website in April, entitled The 11 best street foods worth blowing your diet over, the Jamaican jerked pork was seen as irresistible. The article stated: "One of the great Caribbean dishes, jerked (cured) pork was originally smoked over pimento wood and berries. This added extra flavour, along with the dry rub made up of blisteringly hot chillies, the clove-laden tang of allspice and any other spice or herb close to hand. The meat should be tender and bursting with juice; the heat comes first, a fruity chilli blast, then a sweetness to temper the fire. Each bite should have a whisper of allspice, and a hint of nutmeg or cinnamon. And the crust... Oh, that crust: blackened and sticky, containing the quintessence of the jerk. One portion is never enough."
