Having had a taste of what the local food scene had to offer with our roadside chicken rotis, we were keen for more!
Luckily for us, every Friday in Saint Lucia is “Fish Fry”-day.
A night where locals and travellers come together for a street party and fry up, in the streets.
There are a few different options, but Anse La Raye hosts the most chilled out of them.
So we made our way down the hill, through the banana plantations and into the town.
Despite the sunshine, the rain continued to pour.
Bathing the little coastal town the most incredible, shimmering, golden light.
The black beaches are littered with wooden fishing boats, tangled nets and discarded fishscales, making it shimmer and glitter in the evening light. Little makeshift bars line the street, their hosts tempting you in as you pass. It’s not too easy to resist smiles like these…
All along the alleyway fires blaze, bbqs fizzle and the smell of grilled seafood wafts along the breeze.
Cast your net and you can pull in all manner of specialities!
I’m afraid the rest is all a bit of a rum infused blur.
But what I can tell you, is that at some point in your life, you need to experience a Saint Lucian Fish Fry.
And in some point in mine, I need another!
