Outside of Mojo

As our trip continued, we wanted somewhere to go that was not your typical island eatery and we, without a shadow of a doubt, found that at MOJO’s. We felt as though we were eating in a friend’s backyard. Their tagline was “Music For The People” and we can say that every genre was playing throughout the night. MOJO’s was a paradise within a paradise!

Fish Cakes with Spicy Aioli sauce

Fish Cakes

Now anyone that does not like a dish that consists of a crispy coating is crazy! These Fish Cakes were some of our favourites as they were bite sized. We ordered this appetizer and we loved every bit of it. The spicy Aioli dipping sauce was nothing to mess with. You could not have asked for a better appetizer that packed a punch.

Chicken Pasta in a creamy pesto sauce with Parmesan sprinkled over top

Chicken Fettuccine 

For the creamy lovers, we have something special for you. This Chicken Fettuccine meal was one for the books. The consensus that we all agreed upon was that MOJO’s did not skimp on the size of the chicken. The pieces of chicken were a healthy size, so you did not feel like you had to dig to find them. Fresh Parmesan cascaded on top of our exquisite entrée.

Shrimp Pasta in a Tomato based sauce

Seafood Pasta in Tomato Sauce

So remember when we told you that Barbados has some of the freshest seafood… Our point was proven once again with MOJO’s Seafood Pasta. We had the option of trying their Tomato Sauce and we could not be more happy! We admit that the dishes that we had at MOJO’s always had that added spice that played an important role in the background. Seafood and spice… 2 words that marry extremely well together.

Chicken club sandwich with Bacon, Mozzarella cheese, and Lettuce

The Club

First things first, we were in awe of this presentation of this meal. From the rustic, wooden board that the sandwich was placed on to the fancy canister the ketchup and fries (see image below) were held in, we had to admire The Club for a little while. Chicken and Mozzarella cheese were double stacked with our ultimate favourite…BACON! A little piece of Heaven in each bite.

Seasoned Mojo Fries

MOJO Fries

These fries were so good! When you think about fries, you automatically assume that they would just have salt sprinkled on them and that is it. These fries went above and beyond your average fries. Again, MOJO’s signature spice was sensed in each fry. When we say that we fell in love with these fries, that would not even touch the surface. These fries exemplify MOJO’s on a plate. MOJO’s has something that everyone, whether it be the locals or tourists, can connect with.

 

Wait until you see Part 3 of what Barbados has to offer…

Oistins' Sign

We were lucky enough to have the chance to vacation in the beautiful island of Barbados. The people as well as the food were the many highlights of our 2 week trip. Our first stop was at Oistins where they have their Friday Fish Fry.

Chillin & Grillin

We had the pleasure of checking out an eatery called Chillin & Grillin. This was one of the hot spots at Oistens as the lineup was literally out the door and around the corner. We also had a front row view of the chef grilling the seafood.

Grilled Shrimp with Macaroni Pie and Coleslaw

Grilled Shrimp

Now Barbados is one of the key places to get some of the freshest seafood. We had the grilled Shrimp and the size of the Shrimp were no joke! They were beyond succulent plus the Macaroni pie, which is a staple for each meal in Barbados, was just the way we like it. We are big fans of Coleslaw and this particular one does not disappoint. We were very glad that this was our introduction to this island.

Now when we arrived on the island, we were told that we MUST go to Lemon Arbour especially on a Saturday. Thankfully we arrived midday because the tables were filling up very quickly. This was absolutely the place to be.

Fried Pork with Macaroni Pie & Pasta salad

Fried Pork

We discovered that one of the most popular dishes on the menu was the Fried Pork. I can definitely speak for myself when I say that I LOVE PORK! So when I heard about the Fried Pork I knew that it was a must try. The amount of flavour in the Fried Pork was unreal. Even when I saved some for later I kept picking at the pork, even though it was room temperature, because it was that great. And of course, you know we had to have our Macaroni pie on the side. Not too creamy which worked for us.
