Colorful, Exotic, Fresh, Hot, Adventurous. These are the flavors of the Caribbean culture and the best way to experience it is though our stomach!
Many are the influences in the culture and gastronomy, as many as the origins of the inhabitants of the Caribbean islands. From the original tribes, the Arawaks and Caribs, who preserved their meats with Jerk seasoning, well-loved and popular in BBQ meats today. To the European colonizers who brought a variety of farm animals such as pigs, chickens and cows, which are all incorporated in the local cuisine. Not to forget the influences that pass from island to island, like the East Indians from Trinidad who spread the Roti recipe, curried meat, chicken or veggies wrapped in a flour tortilla like flatbread and served with a delicious local mango chutney… yum!
Local farmers grow herbs, vegetables, fruits and raise animals sold in the local open air markets. More international food can be found in the supermarkets with a wide variety of imported products to satisfy all needs.
From the windows of the local restaurants the smell of North American cuisine with a tropical twist wafts into the streets. On board, we spice up the catch of the day, grill it on the BBQ, serve it with a creamy jasmine coconut rice and a spicy mango salsa to freshen your dish in the tropics.
The flavors are many as are the tastes of our visitors, cruising into the tropical cuisine is a delightful and endless journey made for all who wish to partake.
