The Caribbean kitchen is famous for spicy dishes, exotic fruits and the most delicious variety of sea food. The cocktail of French, Spanish, Indian and African cooking, makes every dish an adventure and tantalizes your taste buds !

Coming to the island ?

Then you've just got to try the local dishes. Why settle for what you can get at the hotels ?
If you are taking a vacation, then give your taste buds one also. While the local dishes are not what you would find in a typical upscale restaurant, they are definitely worth trying. (Don't be afraid to try everything. Remember, you can always carry a bottle of Pepto with you.)

Some of our Grenadian Dishes

grenadian conch Crab and Callaloo: Crab backs cooked with callaloo and served hot. These are land crabs, not the marine variety.
Pepper pot: several different kinds of meat, beef, oxtail, pork ..... whatever is available, cooked with a lot of pepper, garlic, onions chive and thyme and usually served with rice and peas.
Pig souse: made from the knuckles and trotters and usually with grated cucumber.
Roti: beef, chicken or vegetables, cooked with lots of curry and potatoes and served in a skin. Quite popular, and if done in the Trinidadian way, then it also has Chana (a type of nut).
Lambie souse (conch): If done properly, has a delicious smoky aftertaste and a flavor all its own.

For those of you with a yen for something a little different, you can also try;
Manicou: Possum - When done properly, it tastes wonderful. The most commonly asked question is, what does it taste like? The answer is of course, it tastes like chicken.

Come visit our restaurants for a mouth watering preview of West Indian cooking. Sample our Pepper Pot, Oil Down, Fish Broth, Callaloo Soup, or taste our Rotis.
