The Best Caribbean Food & Drink in London and Barbados
Exoticism is on the menu, wherever you are!
Not everybody gets to enjoy the delights of the Caribbean climate all year long – especially not here in the UK. In a bid to beat the arrival of winter and bring some sunshine to the plates of British readers, Virgin Atlantic has created an illustrated map of London’s best Caribbean restaurants and bars, showcasing the hottest spots for locals to get their fix of the Caribbean, whatever the weather.
From delicious jerk chicken, barbecued ribs and coconut shrimps to legendary 12 year old rum cocktails – thankfully, there are no shortage of amazing places in London to enjoy a taste of the sun all year long.
But of course, there’s nothing like going straight to the source and experiencing the joys of the local cuisine – especially if that local cuisine happens to be in the Caribbean. In the second map on the Virgin Atlantic blog, it’s Barbados' very own food and drink scene that's in the spotlight. With 12 of the island's most iconic spots featured – including the Mount Gay Rum Distillery and a host of seaside restaurants and authentic bars – you'll soon be captured by the charm of the Caribbean’s distinctive cuisine and culture.
