The Traveler’s Dishlist: 5 Things You MUST Eat In Barbados

By Krista,

Mount Gay Rum is a staple in the rum shacks around the island. We got a tour through the sugar cane fields, and I even got to harvest some myself and eat it fresh!

You might know I’m the Food Editor at LAist, but did you know that our parent site just launched Gothamist Getaways? I’m contributing all sorts of culinary travel stories to the site, including my new column called The Traveler’s Dishlist.

In all my globetrotting, I found that there was a real lack of one definitive resource to see what the absolute must-trys are in a region. Enter The Dishlist. The whole idea of the column is to tell you what the top 5 local dishes are for a given region, how to say it like a native when necessary, and where to find the best. To kick it off, we’re starting with the ultimate snowbird location, Barbados.

You can read the full story there.

OK Seattle, I'm pickin up what you're throwin down. I could definitely get used to this. #pnwonderland #pnw #visitseattle
All of the lights, all of the lights.
There's a darling old school soda jerk inside the carousel at the Santa Monica Pier that serves phosphorous, banana splits, soda creams, and malted Fosselmans shakes like this one! I've had a blast partnering with @skyscanner @theexpate this week exploring Santa Monica and learning new bits about my city, and can't wait to do it again. #seesantamonica #letsgoeverywhere #basecretstreets #letmeeatcake
Wouldn't mind living here one bit, no siree. Have really been enjoying exploring Santa Monica this week with @skyscanner @theexpate and am so stoked for our live Periscope tomorrow am at 10. Be sure to tune in!
Time for one of my fave sweet treats in Santa Monica! Who's comin with me to @huckcafe? #seesantamonica
There's nothing more soothing than the sound of the sea and a gentle breeze blowing through the palm trees. @skyscanner @seesantamonica @british_airways @theexpate #seesantamonica
Being in Santa Monica always makes me feel like I'm a kid again! It's really a playground for adults too, and I'm so excited to share the sights and bites from the city with @skyscanner @british_airways @seesantamonica @theexpate this week. #seesantamonica #bacitysecrets #whponthego
P N DUBS! I am so into you right now. Cleanest dozen I've had, ever! #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #thatpnwlife #NOchella
Enjoying all the beautiful old buildings in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. It's been so long since my first visit and I can't wait to explore more. Any tips  Insta fam?
The smell of toasty rye and tart sour dough is a warm embrace on a rainy LA day. Thanks for chatting @lodgebreadco, and for coming along @alexandracheney.
Mondays are a real drag. Can we go back to the doggies and donuts from yesterday plz? Kthxbye.
