Best Caribbean Islands for Foodies

Best Caribbean Islands for Foodies: St. Lucia

St. Lucia

St. Lucians flock to the waterfront towns of Gros Islet and Anse la Ray on Friday nights for “jump ups” that blend food, drink, music, and dancing in the streets. The barbecued seafood is straight off the boat, served with breadfruit, sweet potato, or blackened corn on the cob. Local Creole cuisine is influenced by both the French and British, who once ruled the island. Salt fish and green banana is the national dish—and much tastier than its name might suggest. For something completely different, pop into the restaurant at the Hotel Chocolat Boucan for cacao gazpacho and confit of duck in a white chocolate mash.  

Local Favorite: Dasheene at Ladera Resort.
