First Thoughts on The 2019 Food and Rum Festival Events in Barbados.

This is the tenth anniversary of the Food and Rum Festival in Barbados. It is now a decade old. I’ve been going to these events every year as long as I am in the country.  I’ve been to food demonstrations, rum tastings and food events. This year feels smaller than past years. This year’s events…

Cruising Into San Juan, Puerto Rico

Cruising around the Caribbean is the easiest vacation you will ever have. Great weather, great drinks and even better music. As an island boy, I may seem biased, but I am. The best vibes are Caribbean vibes. I firmly believe that there is no better place in the world than Barbados however, San Juan, Puerto…

Why I’m Going To Start Cooking More For My Loved Ones.

I’m trained in culinary and I love to cook but I do not particularly enjoy cooking for my family and friends. Actually, more than anything else it feels like a chore. The more I think about it, there are many reasons why I dislike cooking for my people. First of all, my food isn’t that…

Please Visit Mrs. Moore in St. Kitts

Seeing as how most of the food on a Carnival Cruise is free, it is very rare that I will pay for anything outside. St. Kitts is different. You must visit Mrs. Moore: Eat To Live Snackette. If you are lucky enough to be wandering around the sea port in St. Kitts. To the left…

When we got there, the place was scantily occupied by other patrons, which we assumed was due to the questionable weather we were having. Nonetheless, at that moment the…

Why Everyone Should Be Booking a Table at ‘Top Deck’ Tomorrow.

The Top Deck is Chef Jason Howard’s addition to the culinary world on the west coast of Barbados. Their modern take on Caribbean food is delicious and absolutely stunning.

Eating Sea Bass at Jake’s on Lake Tahoe

On our road trip we were mostly eating snacks and fast food. Eating endless junk food was great but when we got the chance to sit down with local friends at Lake Tahoe, we jumped at the chance. Is there anything better than eating fish on the waterfront? Jake’s is set up like the local…

Discovering Wally’s Smokehouse, Trinidad.

Driving around Trinidad my cousin pointed out a smoke house that he wanted to try. Being a man with impeccable taste for meats, I was instantly intrigued. We passed it at first, but on our way back, tired and rather starved, we made one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. We…

The Most Important Restaurant in Barbados: Chefette.

Chefette is the most important restaurant in Barbados. It is the local fast-food chain that  serves everything from burgers and fries to rotis and their casual dining section ‘BBQ-Barn’ even has pork chops and macaroni pie. So we are clear, I love Chefette. Personally, there is nothing quite like a ‘Broasted Chicken Bubbie Sandwich’ on…
