A Lifestyle For Food Lovers
By Terra Luxury on 26 May, 2017
The sheer number of restaurants and eateries across the island is testament to the fact that Barbadians love food. From tartes and gourmet creations at fine dining restaurants to grilled snapper and breadfruit chips at roadside eateries, the island is ripe with foodie experiences waiting to be embraced. So, for those who consider good food as a big part of their lives, let us introduce you to the Barbadian foodie lifestyle!
Fine Food Lovers
If you have chosen a home on the star-studded west coast of Barbados, then your plat-du-jour involves a serene atmosphere, immaculate presentation and the option of the finest bubbly. On your most special occasions - or as a midweek splurge - dress your best and explore the island’s fine dining restaurants along the Platinum coast. Be swept away by the beautiful Tides with its sea-themed meals and décor; The Cliff, which is considered the pinnacle of fine dining on the island, as well as the opulent Cin Cin, whose chic décor, fresh salads and amazing cocktails are instant hits. In the heart of Holetown, there is also the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, which offers the best in gourmet fast-food bearing Thai and Italian tones to name a few. If you fancy to journey a little further away from home, there is The Fishpot to the north with its exquisite seafood and the Asian-themed Zen on the east coast, both of which have made indelible marks with local and visiting fine dining aficionados.
Regardless of where you work or live on the island, you’ll be within reach of eateries characterized by throngs of locals, out-door grills, rustic containers and the sound of sheer food bliss. These food stops found all across the island are the best places to satisfy that pang for macaroni pie, flying-fish, and all the best of Barbadian cuisine at a more casual and convenient pace. Try Cuzz’s beachside shack with its ‘cutters’ on the south; or Bombas (Mullins,) Santi (Porters) or Juju’s (Alleyne’s Bay) which all offer a wider range of sandwiches, fresh fish and other local treats along the west coast. Visit the fish-fries at the seaside towns Oistins, Moontown and Martin’s Bay to explore the island’s beautiful countryside, or trek inland to the Village Bar at Lemon Arbor, which comes alive each Saturday and offers delicacies such as Cow Heel Soup and Pudding and Souse to its anxious patrons. Rest assured that one or more of these will quickly become your go-to spot for your favourite dish!
