Street Food VS. Fine Dining

When visiting Barbados would you choose a fine dining meal such as one from The Tides Restaurant above? Or would you prefer to buy street food from a local Vendor like Hot Legendary Fish cakes?

Barbados in Bloom: Allamanda

21st August, 2014
Allamanda Flower Barbados

A determined climber and one of the most popular flowers in Barbadian gardens is the Allamanda. Although a native to Brazil, the Allamnada was brought to Barbados and now screams its yellow buttercup shaped flowers all over the island. The Allamanda is a woody evergreen vine, with a milky sap, often pruned to grow as a shrub can grow up to 15 feet tall. The leaves are leathery and glossy, lance-shaped or elliptical, opposite or sometimes in whorls of 3 or 4, measuring up to 6 inches long.

 Today, we are here to talk about fish cakes, and it just so happens that some of our best fish cakes are turned out from a food card on the roadside - Hot Legendary Fish Cakes. These guys have been around for some time now and have an incredible four locations. Magazine Lane, Bridgetown, Bank Hall St. Michael, Oistins and Speightstown! You can always count on freshly fried fishcakes straight out the pot.

Cooking Bajan Style: Corn Beef Fritters

13th August, 2014
Corned Beef Fritter Recipe Barbados

It's tradition in Barbados to eat food that was created by our ancestors. Corn Beef Fritters have been around for many years and locals all over the islands often cook up these delicious treats. It is said that these snacks came about when the plantation workers prepared snacks to carry along and munch on after a hard day of labour. Now, no matter what time of day, we in Barbados continue to make these mouth-watering nibbles. Corn Beef fritters can be eaten with brea, crackers or simply on their own!

Barbados' Best Cafe: Relish

12th August, 2014
Barbados' Best Cafe - Relish

The name Relish holds a certain significance in our lives. From the time it opened in Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, it boasted a confident charisma that reflected its very creative owner Alison Kern. It was fun, it was fresh and it was certainly like nothing we had seen in Barbados. Don’t get us wrong Barbados has some amazing places to ‘hang out’ or rather ‘lime’ but Relish was a new and improved way to enjoy a meal or a cup of coffee relaxed environment.
