When exploring Barbados in your Top Gun Car rentals car, take the time to enjoy some of the delicious foods available in Barbados.  Here are a few of our favourite foods below:


Flying fish

This well known delicacy can be found in many Barbadian homes.  Some like it fried, eaten in a Flying fish cutter, or steamed down to perfection in a sauce made with mustard and onions and served with Cou-cou.  The nation dish of Barbados is Cou-cou and flying fish.








Saturday is not Saturday in Barbados without a nice serving of Pudding and Souse.  This dish consists of pork, steamed pudding, which is made from sweet potatoes and steamed in a dish or stuffed into the pig’s intestines.  This is then garnished with a slice or two of breadfruit and drowned in a pickle made of cucumbers, parsley, onions and scotch bonnet peppers.






These fish balls are made from a mix of cod fish, herbs, flour and baking powder, then deep fried to golden perfection.  This mouth watering delicacy can be found almost anywhere on the island including many restaurants where they are served with a Marie-rose sauce as an appetizer.




mac pie

This is one of Barbados’ signature side dishes.  Mainly made with macaroni, cheese and milk and baked to golden perfection, served alone or with any type of meat ranging from flying fish to beef stew.







Sweet potatoes are tuberous root vegetables which thrive well in tropical and sub tropical climates.  Barbados is a known home for them.  A favorite among locals is sweet potato pie.  This is a combination of creamed sweet potatoes, brown sugar and spices topped with pineapple slices and cherries and baked.






Conkies are traditionally made during the month of November to celebrate Independence.

This mixture of coconut, pumpkin, sweet potato, sugar, spices, raisins, flour, eggs, margarine and milk, are made into a thick mixture which is wrapped in banana leaves and steamed until they are firm.  This is a treat most bajans look forward to each year.
