Going On A Barbados Getaway? Then Try These Mouth-watering Delicacies

Barbados, while mostly known for it's top of the line beach resorts and bars is also a sanctum for some of the most unique and diverse delicacies in the Caribbean. It's one of the top destinations all year round thanks to the combination of breathtaking sceneries, a very rich culture, and the fact that flights to Barbados are very easy to get a hold of.

Today, we'll be feasting on some of the country's most infamous dishes. Mind you, compiling this list is not as easy as it may seem, there are lots of really good food out there, but here some local delicacies that strongly represents the culture of Barbados.

Flying Fish
Barbados is also known as 'the land of the flying fish', in fact the marine creature bears a huge role in the country's cultural identity. You may have the fish fried, barbecued, or pickled as long as you don't miss out on this local delicacy. Why? Because its flavor is something that largely defines the food in Barbados, unique and delicious.

Rum Cake or Black Cake
The people of Barbados loves their alcohol and this cake is undoubtedly a proof of that. It's usually served during the holidays but there are also outlets and restaurants who will gladly serve this 'great cake' to you.

Sea Egg
The White Sea Egg (sea urchin) is another must try that is always a welcome addition to any list involving Bajan delicacies. It's another local food known for its unique taste and is extremely popular, but due to the species' decline, you may only get a taste of this urchin in limited times throughout the year.

Cou-cou
Finally, we have the country's national delicacy, the Cou-Cou. A dish composed of either a geen banana and breadfruit or okra and cornmeal sprinkled with pepper and topped with tomatoes and is usually served with the Bajan's favorite, the flying fish.

Summary
Barbados has a plethora of local dishes you can try and they come in so many different forms like breads, cakes, soups, or even beers. I'll let you be the judge on what would be your favorite, but I'm telling you now that it won't be easy since they are all delicious or unique. But that's not really a bad problem to have isn't it?

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
