Bajan Food

Bajan Lunch

Very typical dishes for Barbados – and made Bajan style. Haven’t had like this in a while – makes me reminisce about Cave Hill days. As a homesick student, I may have occasionally not been appreciative of Barbados, but this reminds me of many good memories and friends.

Rice and red beans.
Flying fish with a stew sauce over it
Macaroni pie (pinkish colour because ketchup mixed in – I have never tried to make it like this, but I did develop a taste for it!)
Potato and green salad.

More Bajan food<— UPDATE:Some more Bajan Lunch, with the ubiquitous and delicious (usually) flying fish, whether caught in Barbados or T&T waters (no wars, but I can’t ignore that it’s a question ;-))

Good food.

Similar things found throughout the Caribbean, but you can taste some differences, subtle perhaps in the flavours. I think Barbados uses marjoram far more than Trinis do, so the tastes are indeed different.

And to add to the post – this is another Bajan dish – fish cake!Bajan Fish Cake

Taken in December 2005. I always try the fish cake at every hotel or establishment in Barbados. The good ones in my opinion have to be a bit denser and richer than the Trini accra, although being both made from a saltfish etc batter, there are bound to be similarities! (another accra picture)

  2. Yes, buffet at Cave Shepherd- affordable and filling. Other than that, did you ever try overfilling the Cheffette’s salad bar takeout containers? I know I watched people do it but I can’t remember ever doing it myself.

  3. I think that there was always sooo much food for so little that we would have to take some away…..but I am sure I filled their bowls to capacity….
