As soon as we left, the salesmen and women were right on us, but they do handle a very polite no thank-you very well, they are after all just trying to make a living. Anyone who plans to take a stroll such as we did, has to expect some pushy sales people and need to learn how to handle it without being fearful and getting stressed. The shop owners will ask you to visit their shops, but if you don't want to, just say "No Thanks". If you decide to browse in these shops, then do so. Another tip is to never tell them "another time or not today" is equal to making them a promise that you'll be back, and they don't forget, honesty is key. There are Jamaican on Stilts, a few bucks will get you a nice picture with them. Do keep in mind that the Hip Strip is very safe and there are Tourist Police at just about every half a block or so.
When we finally made it to The Pork Pit, the walk was well worth it. The Chicken and Pork was just simply wonderful and cooked perfectly. We ordered 1/4 Pork, 1/4 Chicken and Two bottles of water, the price was around $12.95 There are two different sauces to put on the side of your meal, one being a bit spicier than the other, but they are both delicious.
We enjoyed it so much that we asked another couple who we met at the resort to join us the next day. They also agreed that it was well worth the walk.
There is an hourly free Sandals shuttle bus from Sandals Mobay and Sandals Royal Caribbean to Sandals Carlyle, so for anyone who is staying at those two resorts, just take the bus to the Carlyle, visit the Hip Strip, then take the bus back to either resort you're staying at.
