Speightstown – Barbados
February 19, 2016
One of my favorite things about visiting a new country or place is eating where and what the locals eat. Not only will the food probably be better than the tourist traps, it will also be way cheaper. Ergo, you won’t break your piggy bank and you’ll probably be able to vacation longer. Amazeballs, right?
One area I highly recommend when visiting Barbados is Speightstown and the surrounding area. Located on the west coast of Barbados the beaches in this neck of the woods are gorgeous! Plus they aren’t crowded.
One of the places we went to was Back to Eden.
I really love a good smoothie. Not to sound corny, but fruit is nature’s candy.
I went a bit crazy at this next spot, P.R.C Bakery. I love baked goods and they were so cheap and yummy.
There is nothing like having a good cup of coffee on the roof with one of these pastries for breakfast. Or for that matter ending the night on the roof, with a cup of tea and one of those treats. Living.
Another spot you should hit is The Fisherman’s Pub.
Serving up a hot lunch cafeteria style. It really is something not to be missed.
We tried Coucou – Cornmeal with Okra. Oxtail Stew and Fried Flying Fish.
A great place for dinner was De Outback in Lower Carolton. This place is awesome, especially if you love kitties. I’m a total crazy cat lady and there were two adorable kittens running around.
I had their Rum Punch.
For dinner I had their Jerk Chicken.
Very good Jerk Chicken, I mean if you can’t get good Jerk Chicken in the Caribbean, I don’t know where you can.
My boyfriend ordered the Flying Fish.
Flying fish is a bit fishy. It’s good but if you don’t enjoy fish that tastes like fish, don’t get this.
Stay tuned for next week’s final installment of my foodie adventure in Barbados.
