Where can you find great food in Grand Anse? You want low cost, lovely cuisine? You want street food and cheap eats, but you don’t want to go far!
Grenada has the best spices in the world. It also has fertile volcanic soil, and the tastiest tropical vegetables. Street food in Grenada is absolutely gorgeous. You’ll find it all around the island. Grenadian food is going to be a highlight of your holiday. Where can you get it, at a reasonable price, near the Siesta Hotel? Step out of the hotel, turn right and walk with me a short way. We’ll visit some places around Grand Anse. Watch this video below to find out!
The Siesta Hotel is a short walk from the beach, and a stone’s throw from some really neat little places to “eat cheap”. As It’s the Caribbean we are talking about roast corn, callaloo soup, oil down and curried goat. Here’s your chance to really try Grenadian cuisine. Just look below at these photographs:-
Grill Master: Wall Street’s eclectic Grenadian restaurant
I love a relaxing and calm Sunday Lunch. Last August we spent a happy couple of hours at the excellent Grill Master Restaurant in Wall Street, Grand Anse. We tried the wonderful turkey and corn soup, and it was a real treat! Grill Master is right by the Grand Anse roundabout. It is a superb place to try out a wide range of Grenada’s culinary wonders! Sit back and watch the Grand Anse world drift by. They have a take-away counter, and a restaurant with waiter service. It is open for breakfast, lunch and evening dinner.
Eating at Grill Master is an excellent way to try out a large range of Grenada’s fabulous food. They also serve an wide array of more international dishes. Thus you can order great pizzas and wraps. An early morning treat is their wonderful breakfast choice – take out or eat-in. Here are a few examples:-
- local saltfish with bakes (shown in the top photograph).
- they have delicious breakfast sandwiches – with egg, bacon, ham and cheese
- Try a Grenadian breakfast with smoked herring, salted fish, bakes, salad, sausage and fried eggs.
Don’t forget to add some Grenadian hot pepper sauce to spice it up! At 10am they serve their delicious rotis. I would choose boneless chicken roti or fish roti. From about 11am they serve a traditional Grenadian lunch menu. Here are some of my favourites:-
– ginger and pumpkin soup.
– gorgeous stewed of baked chicken.
– grilled swordfish or curried mutton with stewed callaloo.
In the evening they have a fabulous dinner menu. You could get jerk chicken, barbecued pork ribs or lobster tail. Lobster can also be eaten as a wrap, in a sub or salad. Dining at Grill Master is a fabulous way to try out a variety of Grenadian dishes at a really modest cost. To me they have a truly tremendous choice of Caribbean delights. I simply love to eat my way through their various offerings!
The Street-Food of Wall Street!
In Grenada street food is a spice-infused delight. This is a focal point of Grenadian life, in little villages and bigger towns, all over the island. However, the stalls really come alive on Friday and Saturday nights. A party atmosphere prevails as crowds gather round food stalls. There is much chatting, eating, and listening to great Soca. The Wall Street area of Grand Anse is where the action happens locally to the Siesta Hotel. In Grand Anse there is food available all week too! The area just North of the Morne Rouge Road is home to sellers of roast corn, sugar cane, rotis and soups. At various times you’ll find mannish waters (goat soup), callaloo soup, or curried goat. Try roast corn for a lovely snack. Watch as the vendor roasts it on his little iron coal pot. Sample that fabulous flavour of Grenadian corn. Other delights are:-
- lambi waters (conch soup) and lambi souse.
- Grenadian shepherd’s pie.
- The local black pudding
- Wonderful barbecued chicken.
To sample this is to indulge in a pivotal part of Grenadian life. The food is wonderful, it’s cheap, and it’s a lot of fun. Return here over the next few weeks and we’ll visit other superb places. Some are near the magical Grand Anse Beach. Others are near the Grand Anse Road. I feel hungry already!
