What to Eat in Guadeloupe

Naturally, Guadeloupe is heaven for seafood lovers, but there are plenty of cuisines to please every appetite. Many spots specialize in French and Creole dishes, with a focus on using lots of spices and local fish and produce. Looks for dishes, such as accras (fritters made from cod or vegetables), callaloo (an herb soup made with bacon and a spinach-like leaf), migan (bananas and breadfruit), along with classics like moules et frites (mussels in broth served with French fries), on local menus.

You'll also want to seek out bokit, a deep-fried naan-like bread stuffed with meat and vegetables and served with a refreshing hand-mixed coconut sorbet. Another sweet treat is tourment d'amour, which is a traditional tart made with coconut, banana or guava tart. It gets its name from wives of Les Saintes sailors, who made them while waiting for the return of their husbands at sea. And, of course, imbibe in a locally made rum to wash it all down with.
