Known as ‘The Land of the Flying Fish’, the national dish in Barbados is Flying fish with Cou-Cou. Cou-Cou is a combination of cornmeal and okra with salt, pepper and Barbados’ very own hot sauce. The Bajan cuisine includes lots of dishes that kids will love, including the traditional Caribbean Chicken with rice and beans. A trip to Oistins Fish Market is a great way to experience the Bajan culture and food – and dance to some Caribbean tunes. It’s open daily, but Friday evening is the best time to go, when there are stalls serving freshly grilled fish, salads and traditional Bajan dishes such as macaroni pie.
