U.S. Virgin Islands
Gastronomy in the USVI reflects the colorful hodgepodge of cultures that has coalesced here over the generations. African, Danish, and French influences from the colonial era mix with more recent infusions of American, Spanish, and Middle Eastern traditions, keeping this Caribbean melting pot percolating with ever-more-inventive culinary delights. To eat like an islander, look for USVI favorites like fish and fungi, souse, Johnnycakes, oxtail, pâtés, and curries at roadside food trucks and local eateries. You can find international wines and island-inspired beers—but the main alcoholic drink here is rum, and the popular Cruzan brand is distilled in St. Croix.
