Iconic Dishes To Try At An Authentic Caribbean Restaurant

There are not that many authentic Caribbean restaurants out there so if you come across one, you might as well take the opportunity to try the cuisine. Caribbean food is unique but approachable. It has been influenced by Spanish, French, and Latin American cuisines over the years, resulting in a multicultural blend of flavors and elements. There are so many incredible Caribbean dishes to try, but the following are some of the most iconic.

Conch Fritters

Conch are ocean-dwelling shelled creatures. They are quite common in Caribbean cuisine, and one way you'll often see them used is in conch fritters. These are very common in the Bahamas but are sometimes served on other islands, too. They're basically a mixture of conch meat, flour, egg, and seasonings. The mixture is shaped into a ball and deep-fried. Most versions are flavored with onion and are just a little bit spicy. Enjoy conch fritters as an appetizer; they are great for sharing.

Fungee and Pepperpot

As the National Dish of Antigua, fungee and pepperpot is a must-try if you see it on the menu. Fungee is like a dumpling made from cornmeal. Pepperpot is basically a soup made from peppers, okra, and a variety of meats. The fungee is usually served on top of the pepperpot. Essentially, this is a Caribbean version of chicken and dumpling soup. It's warming and soothing on a chilly day. Some restaurants may offer smaller portions as a side dish.


Plantains are common throughout the Caribbean, but they are often used in sweet dishes. Mofongo is an exception. This dish is made from ground, green plantains, crunch pork skins, and garlic. The ingredients are formed into a ball or dome and fried. They're then put into a bowl, and chicken stock is poured over them before serving. Mofongo is popular in Puerto Rico.

Jerk Chicken

This iconic Jamaican dish is perhaps the best-known on the list. It is chicken that has been marinated in a blend of spices: allspice, cinnamon, coriander, and Scotch bonnet pepper are the key ones. Jerk chicken is hot, but not overwhelmingly so. It is usually cooked until it is fall-apart tender and served over rice.

These iconic dishes are all well worth ordering if you see them on a menu at a Caribbean restaurant. Don't be afraid to ask the server if they have any other recommendations, too. Most Caribbean food is very approachable and delicious.
