Local Foods of Interest:
Local food tends to be spicy and hearty. Curried Goat, stewed mutton, Chicken, Oxtail, and Fish are all popular local cuisine.

Roti is somewhat similar to a Pate. Originating in India, it's made with a light, fluffy dough wrapped around spiced or curried meats, chicken, or veggies.

Conch is a large mollusk often served in chowder or as fritters.
Salt Fish is dried, boneless, salted fish (usually cod) which is dense, firm, and meaty. It is soaked in water until moist and tender and then incorporated into stews and fritters.

Fungi (fun-gee) consists of cornmeal that has been boiled and cooked to a thick consistency. It is flavored with bits of okra. Fungi is usually eaten with boiled fish.

Callaloo (or kallaloo) is a soup made from callaloo bush/ leaf and various meats and okra, and is boiled to a thick stew consistency.

Pates are pastries enclosing spiced meats, fish, and/or vegetables, then deep fried

Additional popular side dishes are rice and peas, yams, fried plantains, dasheen, sweet potato, cassava, beans and lentils, mangos and coconuts

For some great local West Indian food visit two of our downtown restaurants: Glady's Cafe, located in Royal Dane Mall and Cuzzin's, located on back street. Both receive great reviews by those who patronize them.
