Andrew Zimmern's Favorite Caribbean Restaurants
F&W contributing editor Andrew Zimmern may be famous as the host of the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods, but as a trained cook he also loves delicious foods. Here, Zimmern shares some of his favorite finds while traveling all across the Caribbean, from Jamaica’s best jerk chicken to Virgin Gorda’s superb conch fritters.Photo courtesy of the Travel Channel.
“Incredible seafood like crayfish ravioli and pigeon pea soup make this the best spot for inventive cuisine and traditional Anguillan fare. The rock-oven chicken needs to be ordered a day in advance, and it’s worth it. The 15,000-bottle wine cellar is inspiring for grape juice heads.” koalkeel.comPhoto © Susan Croft Photography.

“Make reservations early to get a seat on the terrace for an amazing view and stuff yourself silly on Asian-influenced Caribbean food that is the best of its kind on the island. Go for the curry-tinged grilled swordfish, red chile steamed mussels and coconut conch fritters.” thecliffbarbados.comPhoto courtesy of The Cliff.
