Eat Like a Local

There are plenty of cool local places to grab a bite on a Bridgetown shopping expedition: Hunter’s Bar on Tudor Street serves their famous pudding and souse and Bajan cutters with fish, and ham and cheese; Mustor’s on McGregor Street sells hot lunches of delicious local specialties like macaroni pie, breadfruit cou cou with stewed pork chops, and our national dish, flying fish and cou cou. At Tim’s on Broad Street be sure to sample the barbeque pig tails and wash it down with an ice cold Banks beer or, for something different try mauby, a bitter-sweet local drink made from the bark of a tree.
