Fodor's Expert Review El Fredo's
This humble wood shack across from the waterfront dishes out some of the finest local fare on St. Kitts. No surprise you'll find politicians and expats grabbing a quick lunch (it's a terrific place to eavesdrop on local gossip) alongside local workers shyly bantering with the waitresses. With just a few genre paintings for atmosphere, the decor is basic. The draw is the traditional stewed oxtail, curry goat, or swordfish creole served with heaping helpings of fungi (cornmeal), rice and peas, and dumplings. Join the locals for bounteous dishes that they swear will cure—or at least absorb—any hangover.
