If you’re looking for traditional Bajan cooking in a garden setting behind a coral-stone bungalow, Brown Sugar is the place. Everybody flocks here for the lunch buffet (especially on Sundays), a cornucopia of fried flying fish, seafood creole, pickled pork, pepperpot soup, and pumpkin fritters. A la carte at dinner is excellent as well—though frankly a bit overpriced—cou cou (cornmeal and okra) and flying fish or buljol (herbed shredded saltfish with tomatoes, onion, and sweet peppers), herb-crusted snapper, broiled pepper chicken, or roast pork stuffed with plantain and bacon in a Bajan pan gravy. The Bajan bread pudding in rum sauce for dessert is nice, too.
