When we go on cruises, I always research the local foods at each of our stops. Then we make an effort to try them. Usually, we check with some of the locals and they almost never are wrong!
This time, we went into a restaurant to check their menu. They didn't have any of the foods we were looking for but the waitress was very helpful. She looked at our list and told us that the best place to go was the food court at Woods Mall. She even gave us the name of the woman who runs it! Then, this same waitress walked outside with us, helped us get a cab and even explained to the driver where we needed to go!!
The food court looked like nothing much--just not very impressive looking. There were several food counters--Chinese, Italian and Antiguan. Oh my, was she right, though!!! This is a great place to sample the foods for a reasonable price.
Favorite Dish: Obviously, this is a spot that the locals go. I saw people picking up carryout orders as well as eating there. It was very cheap and delicious. So many choices and the servings were huge! We ended up with pepperpot, roti and beans & rice. I really wanted to try some ducana but unfortunately, it takes a while to make and they didn't have it available yet.
