What I meant by "roads less travelled" was, charming, interesting out of the way places, that very few people know about and that most tourists don't see. Like a cute shop in a small town, or a great restaurant not yet discovered by the masses, or a nature trail that has spectacular views. You know , "take the road less travelled".

Well you have a good aproach, that is the way to really enjoy a good holiday and Barbados is a good place to do that .We do just that every time we go there, you must rent a car get the island map and just go exploring

You're in luck. Been there 3 times. Love this island - love the food - local that is.

You can find VERY inexpensive local food, delicious, overly generous portions from quite a few places:

1. Princess: on the West Coast, Princess operates a take-out catering business out of the back of her pick-up truck. She used to be parked on the main road outside of the Sandy Lane hotel at about 11:00-11:30 AM weekdays. All the local employees from the hotels buy from her. Go early or you'll miss out. Don't be discouraged about the back of the pick-up truck operation. She has one of the best operations we've ever seen. She has compartmentalized the entire inside of the cab and has shelves with 9 - 12 different dishes, all piping hot, all tasty. For about $9 BDS (about $5.00 Canadian), you can get a huge take-out container loaded with stewed chicken, rice and peas, gravy and two or three different side dishes. It's enough food to feed two with a portion left over for later. 2. Next try Granny's on the southeast coast area, just past the St. Lawrence Gap going east towards Oistins (the fishing marina area). Again, a small operation inside a 4 store strip-type mall. Mainly locales eating there. Once in or nearing Oistins, ask around and someone should be able to direct you. 3. Also, try the Pepperpot Restaurant. Although I've never been I have heard good things. Reasonable prices. It's in the St. Lawrence Gap area in the South coast. 4. If you are in the St. Lawrence Gap area, you could also try eating at Angies in the Sand Acres Hotel. It's a beachside restaurant (which is next to the Welcome Inn Hotel). We ate lunch there and it was about $12.00 BDS or $7.00 Canadian for a nice 1/2 chicken, rice, salad etc. lunch. You will need a car to get to most of these places if you are not staying anywhere close to them. Good luck! Don't worry, water is OK to drink and we have never had any problem eating from the vendors - As long as you EAT WHERE THE LOCALS ARE FLOCKING TO EAT. Have fun. You can contact me via e-mail if you have any other questions.

Try the Coach House on the West Coast for lunch. It's a hopping pub at night with great music but during the day the have a $10 (bajan) all you can eat buffet of local favorites (incl Flying Fish). Also, La Maison was my favorite for dinner.
