Nestled on a corner with a bright blue and yellow storefront inspired by the Bajan flag, Culpepper’s is a casual spot for beach-inspired classics like accras - fluffy fried balls made with saltfish and West Indian seasonings. For a heartier meal, try the national dish, cou-cou, an Afro-Caribbean staple prepared with cornmeal, okra, and coconut milk served with flying fish in a brightly colored orange stew with hints of tomato, onion, and lime juice.
