1. ANTIGUA BLACK PINEAPPLE
Known simply as Antigua Black, it’s arguably the world’s sweetest pineapple. But don’t expect a darker-hued fruit; the flesh of this pineapple is still golden in color.
2. GOAT WATER
This hearty Antiguan goat stew seasoned with clove and cinnamon is a local favorite.
3. ANEGADA LOBSTER
These delicately sweet crustaceans fill the waters surrounding the island of Anegada in the British Virgin Islands, and are caught and delivered daily to restaurants and resorts throughout the BVI.
Considered a local delicacy, conch is the seafood of choice in Turks & Caicos, which is home to the world’s only conch farm. Its rich island history makes it a must-try food.
5. COU-COU AND FLYING FISH
Barbados’ national dish, composed of corn meal (cooked to a polenta-like consistency), okra, flying fish and an aromatic tomato sauce.
6. PIGEON PEAS AND RICE
Anguilla’s national dish, this simple meal combines pigeon peas (similar to black-eyed peas), rice, butter, spices, lime juice and a dash of hot sauce.
