Turks and Caicos are a modern international crossroads of cultures. They are considered the melting pot of the Caribbean culture.


Traveling to the Turks and Caicos nowadays you’ll be able to choose from almost every cuisine on earth. The culinary experience in Turks and Caicos includes local delicacies such as mahi mahi, tuna, rock lobster and conch.

Local cuisine, since the arrival of Europeans and people from Africa, has been based on the sea and on maize. You can still taste traditional foods in the Middle Caicos where you can eat typical “boil fish and grits” for breakfast and “boil fish and johnny cake” for lunch.

Other traditional dishes include conch and hominy, cod fish cakes and cornbread. Steamed conch, stewed conch and stewed fish and grits. Blue crab and rice is another typical food you want to try. A selection of food you would like to experience includes Lionfish, Conch Ceviche (conch caught by local fishermen). The mollusk, that produces a chewy white meat similar to calamari, made into ceviche (tossed in a mixture of sweet peppers, red onion, lime, tomato and citrus), Snapper (almost always grilled with a lemon caper), grouper from Opus on Grace Bay (perfect if grilled and paired with sauces),

Lobster Tail that you should eat after a generous dip in the garlic lemon. You should have it while drinking a local Turks Head Amber beer.
