Sweet T's is a small but quaint little ice cream parlour located in Falmouth Harboour, Antigua. This ice cream parlour is perfect for those who live in English Harbour and the surrounding villages, as the main town is relatively far away. Sweet T's also stock an assortment of candy and they're always a hit with the local children.The ice cream parlour is a colourful wooden structure painted in yellow, purple and green. It draws your attention, as it sticks out of the grassy landscape like a sore thumb. Sweet T's has been in operation for approximately five years, and business seems to be doing well, mostly due to its rural location. Aside from ice cream, Sweet T's also sells milkshakes, ch...Read More

Nestled amongst small stores and shops in St. John's, is one of Antigua's most frequented lunch venues: Mid East Fast Food. The restaurant has been running for over 12 years and based on the several times I've eaten there, I can only say that their food gets better every time. For this reason, Mid East Fast Food has quite a large fan club. This may be good news for the business, but bad news for customers because unless you order or arrive early, all of your favourite dishes may be sold out.The Menu:Although the eatery mostly specializes in Middle Eastern Cuisine, they also serve a few local and international dishes. A typical lunch menu would resemble the following (prices quoted ...Read More

Story/Tip

Most restaurants in Antigua that claim to offer local cuisine may or may not actually do so. If they do, it's still presented to impress a visitor, thereby taking away the actual authenticity of the dish. If you're a foodie, who's really interested in what and where Antiguan residents eat, I will give you a general idea.The national dish of Antigua is Fungee and Pepperpot, but other dishes such as salfish and ducana and very much local dishes as well. The best way to sample all of the local cusines of the island would be at a food fair, but there are only a few of these occasions, scattered throughout the year. Fungee is a dish made mostly of cornmeal and pepperpot is a stewed ...Read More
