This sandwich-style Caribbean classic is made with fresh fry bread, called bara, and a curried chickpea stew, called chana, making this all-day staple a delicious vegetarian option. Dating back to the 1930s, this popular dish is believed to have been created by Indo-Trinidadians from the island’s Princes Town and it has been a cultural culinary tradition ever since! In fact, doubles have garnered worldwide attention, even having their own national day of celebration on May 30.
Juicy Jamaican Jerk Chicken
A classic throughout the Caribbean but famously known as a Jamaican staple, this beloved style of barbecue finds its roots from the Spanish term charqui, which means “dried strips of meat” and is reflective of the jerky-style texture and smoky flavour of meats cooked over burning coals.
Caribbean Rice and Peas
Originally descending from West African tribes, the rice and peas combination was adapted in the Caribbean and has become a delicious staple throughout the Caribbean, with recipes handed down from generation to generation. This versatile dish can be enjoyed throughout the day as a side for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Belizean Fry Jacks
Similar to beignets from New Orleans, these delicious pieces of fried dough are a popular staple in Belize, as well as throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. Commonly enjoyed for breakfast as fuel for the day ahead, fry jacks can be eaten sweet or savoury depending on the accompanying toppings and condiments.
Jamaican Ginger Beer
Fresh and spicy, this popular nonalcoholic sparkling beverage has deep roots in the Caribbean due to the global spice trade. Historically one of the world’s most well-known growers of ginger and sugarcane, Jamaica popularized this carbonated drink by way of British influence. It is perfect as a refreshing drink on its own or can be added to a variety of cocktails, such as the famous Moscow mule.
