Food & Dining in Grenada


Grenada grows everything from lettuce and tomatoes to citrus, mangoes, papaya, callaloo (similar to spinach), dasheen (a root vegetable), christophenes (like squash), breadfruit, etc. And all restaurants prepare dishes with local produce and season them with the many spices grown here.

Soups, especially pumpkin and callaloo, are divine and often start a meal. Pepper pot is a savoury stew of pork, oxtail, vegetables, and spices. 'Oildown', the national dish, is salted meat, breadfruit, onions, carrots, celery, dasheen and dumplings all boiled in coconut milk until the liquid is absorbed and the savoury mixture becomes oily. A roti (curried chicken, beef, or vegetables wrapped in pastry and baked) is similar to a turnover and more popular in Grenada than a sandwich.

Fresh seafood of all kinds, including lobster, is plentiful. Conch, known here as lambi, often appears curried or in a stew. Crab back, though, is a land crab. Most Grenadian restaurants serve seafood and at least some native dishes.

Be sure to try the local flavours of ice cream: soursop, guava, rum raisin, coconut, or nutmeg.

Rum punches are ubiquitous and always topped with grated nutmeg. Clarke's Court and Westerhall are local rums. Carib, the local beer, is refreshing, light, and quite good. If you prefer a non-alcoholic drink, opt for fruit punch.

Places to Dine

Most hotels and restaurants offer international cuisine, serving a large variety of tropical fish and English, Continental, American and exotic West Indian food.
