I hate to say this but I didn’t really like the food in Barbados. For one, I’m a sucker for fish and I saw some of the biggest fish in Barbados however, the fish didn’t really taste great or familiar regardless of how it was made. Barbadians also like to bread their chicken and fish and I hated this as well.
Traditionally, Barbadians eat cou cou with fried flying fish, macaroni pie, fried/grilled breadfruit, chow mein, buttered cassava, dolphinfish, rice with split peas, fried/boiled plantain, okro, yams, sweet/english potatoes, salads, just to name a few. Barbadians also like to use bajan spicy sauce with their meals.
The foods I did love in Barbados were the plantain, okro and yams which are popular foods in Nigeria and reminded me of home 😁.
