Although Vieux Fort does not have many restaurants, you will always find something tasty if you know where to go. You will come across roadside BBQ’s (chicken is a local favourite) and the delicious popular Indian inspired “roti” (a type of wrap filled with curried meat, or soy and potatoes) as well as “local meals” consisting of a large helping of rice, beans, vegetables, ground provisions (sweet potato, dasheen, yam, breadfruit etc.) and fish or meat in a rich gravy.
