Grenada offers Caribbean food at its best. As the ‘Spice of the Caribbean’ Grenada is known for its cuisine – spices, chocolates, and rum. In fact, Grenada is the very first Accredited Culinary Capital by the world Food Travel Association.
The integration of spices into Grenada’s cuisine has resulted in an overall robust and flavourful national food profile. From fine dining to casual beachside restaurants and even street food, it is undeniable that Grenadians have a taste and flair for delicious food. The islands are perfectly positioned as a Culinary Capital, with their many distinctive culinary assets to showcase. Examples include the tradition of saraka, the national dish ‘oil down’, chocolate, nutmeg ice-cream, handcrafted rums, and of course, the many uses of the spices on the island both in food and for medicinal and wellness purposes.
A trip to Grenada should not end without trying our national dish – Oil Down. This one-pot stew is the combination of many things – coconut milk, meat, ground provisions, callaloo, and of course, spices.
Also, as Caribbean islands, you’re bound to find fresh fish and sea food at any of our restaurants from lobster to yellow-fin tuna, mahi mahi, grouper, crawfish, and so much more.
