Why Haven’t You Been to Bento Box Yet?

Driving around Barbados these days is weird since we have been spending so much time indoors, it is hard to tell if all the places open now are new or if they just weren’t noticeable before. One new place everyone should be flocking to is, Bento Box in Warrens. It is a peculiar situation because…

Always Return Food Containers With Something In Them.

Are parents supposed to teach you gratitude? They definitely teach you to be polite. When someone gives you something, you say, ‘Thank you’ but is that true gratitude?

A Review of the Barbados Food and Rum Festival 2019.

In 2018 I was very vocal about not going to The Barbados Food and Rum Festival (you can read that article here). As a result, I made a serious effort to attend the 2019 Food and Rum Festival. I went to almost every night. The only night I missed was the ‘Gourmet Safari’ which is…

Why Is Champers So Successful?

If you live in Barbados, at some point you have probably dined at Champers or at least wanted to go there for dinner. Champers is a fine dining restaurant on the South Coast of Barbados with a lovely view overlooking the sea. It is a staple on the Bajan food scene, but how did this…
