With British Airways launching its holiday sale, now is the perfect time to book a trip to St. Kitts to enjoy warm temperatures and tempting cuisine.
The exquisite Caribbean nation of St. Kitts, known for its lush rainforest, heritage sites, and balmy temperatures, is also home to a kaleidoscope of culinary experiences that will delight even the most seasoned world traveller. Whether you’re a fine-dining lover or prefer a more casual island experience, you’ll find it in St. Kitts.
St Kitts has a range of stunning restaurants where you’ll be impressed by the professional service, quality ingredients and beautiful setting include Marshall’s, Serendipity, Spice Mill and The Fisherman’s Village. Travellers can also enjoy a more authentic experience at Sprat Net, where the slogan is “we eat what we catch”.
The Fisherman’s Village at Park Hyatt St. Kitts is one of the newest openings on the island, offering a first-class waterfront dining experience. Guests can watch chefs prepare delectable seafood dishes such as sambal marinated Mahi Mahi with aromatic pilaf rice and pickled vegetable salad, salted cod with chilled vichyssoise, cod mousse and seared scallops, or Milanese-style seafood risotto served with aged vincotto.
For something a little more authentically St. Kitts, El Fredo’s is a local family-owned favourite. Serving up traditional Kittitian food that changes daily, including goat water (spicy meat stew), curried conch and island-grown vegetables such as yams, cassava and sweet potato, you won’t leave disappointed.
Other top spots to experience true Kittitian cuisine includes Sunset Café & The Dock (part of the Timothy Beach Resort), Mr. X’s Shiggidy Shack (offering great entertainment in a traditional island setting), and Vibes, which has unbeatable tunes and delicious cocktails.
You cannot leave the island without trying St. Kitts’ national dish – stewed saltfish – a dish that contains only a few ingredients but doesn’t skimp on taste. Saltfish caught in the Caribbean Sea is naturally bursting with flavour and is a local’s diet staple. When served with spicy plantains, seasoned breadfruit and coconut dumplings, it’s a truly authentic Kittitian dish that you’ll want to write home about.
