If you have ever looked at a menu in Barbados the chances are you have seen the word "roti" mentioned on it somewhere.   The dictionary definition suggests that a roti is an Indian flat bread, but in Barbados they are more than that, they are stuffed.

And what that stuffing consists of can vary greatly, but will always be warm and delicious.

You don't need cutlery to eat them, they are the perfect snack to eat on the beach as they come wrapped and self contained.     The prices do vary, obviously, and can range from a small one picked up from a petrol station at BDS$7 up to them being served as a dish in a restaurant at BDS$30.   But the taste will always been amazing.

The menu above is from the Roti Den which is classed as one of the best places on the island to by roti.   It is on the main highway in Paynes Bay and if you have ever driven along that road you won't have missed its brightly coloured exterior.  But did you know that all the roti are prepared on site, fresh every morning?

When we asked how many they prepared every day the two ladies couldn't tell us be we are fairly certain it runs into the hundreds!

Our favourite is chicken and vegetable but what would yours be?


Meet The Author
Welcome to our home away from home! We are Neil and Olivia and we bought this property after retiring from running a vineyard for 10 years. We have spent the last few years travelling the world (often in a classic car) and fell in love with Barbados the first time we visited. As much as we love to travel, we also like to spend time relaxing with a good bottle of wine and great company. We have furnished Fairways very much with that vibe in mind: somewhere for you to unwind and enjoy your well deserved holiday, but close enough to plenty of restaurants, beaches and "must do's" so you never hear the dreaded "I'm bored". We also know that it is the little touches that really make a holiday, so we are more than happy to help with special requests beyond "can you organise a cot". Getting married and need transport? Have a special dinner to book? Want to have dinner served at home but don't want to cook it? We would love to help with any of those. Please do get in touch
