Let Your Inner Foodie Out In Barbados

June 25, 2018 | By Blue Sky Luxury

Everyone knows that one of the best indicators of an enjoyable vacation is how good the food is. Whether it’s that amazing snapper that you had on last year’s family vacation or the Passionfruit granita during your birthday getaway, our palate often plays a crucial role (along with your waist line!!) in how memorable your holiday is. So with that being said, this entry is to assure you that if this is indeed true, your time in Barbados will be unforgettable. Our food offerings are as varied as they are exciting; be prepared to try dishes that you’ve never heard of and those which you can’t get enough of- with a little twist, of course.

Macaroni Pie is a signature Barbadian dish, and without a doubt you will find very few Bajans who don’t consider it to be one of their favorites.  Macaroni Pie, or ‘Pie’, as many Bajans call it, is served as a side dish to anything from Flying fish to Baked Chicken. Add some gravy and salad and you have an award winning meal.
