Roseau, Dominica: David Hoffmann- A Famous Youtuber with 1 million subscribers, tried exotic Caribbean Food in Dominica. In a video posted on his channel @Davidsbeenhere, he ate opossums and giant rodents for a time on the nature island of the Caribbean.
While wrapping up his visit to Dominica, YouTuber had two exotic local delicacies for my final dinner on the island: manicou and agouti. Manicou is made from opossum, while agouti is made from a rodent similar to guinea pigs. He invited people to join him on this surprising food adventure in Dominica.
He visited these sites during Dominica travel which are as follows:
Bell hall beach spot: At this incredible beachside restaurant, David Hoffmann stated that the cooks prepared a phenomenal Dominican feast of manicou, agouti, conch chowder, coconut curry tuna, coconut curry vegetables, sea cockroach, salad, and grilled octopus. Everything was excellent and fresh. Overall, it was one of his favourite meals of the trip.
Bar drinks: There was no way he wasn’t going to enjoy a few drinks on my final night in Dominica, so he headed the bar and tried a potent ginger shot, a strong medicinal shot, and some marijuana punch, which he chased with a nice ginger beer.
Earlier, David Hoffmann also arrived in the village of Calibishie on the northeastern coast of Dominica. He set out with some local cooks and fishmongers to prepare and enjoy an exotic sea urchin dinner at Rainbow Restaurant and Bar.
RAW SEA URCHIN: During his visit, YouTuber headed to the rocky beach, where the sea urchin guy was retrieving them from the water and eating some of them raw. He used a knife to slice it in half, cut off all the spines, and let me try some of it. Then, he also tenderized an octopus against a large rock.
Rainbow restaurant and bar: He added, “Our cook, Naz, prepared the sea urchin by sauteeing it with diced peppers, green onion, celery, garlic, parsley, cumin, and green seasoning. It was fantastic! Then, we enjoyed a curry octopus made with coconut milk, celery, onions, garlic, peppers, green seasoning, and herbs. It’s fresh, tasty, and tender. Come to this restaurant for great food and incredible people in Dominica.”
STEEL DONKEY: Finally, he met with the bartender, Jordan, invited him tto have a Steel Donkey, which is a local cocktail that comes in two glasses: a shot in a glass and a beer in a glass. It was powerful and needed the chaser.
For his final adventure on the island of Dominica, David Hoffmann headed to the village of Calibishie to tour a local chocolate factory.
Pointe Baptiste estate: David Hoffmann added that this unique business is Dominica’s only chocolate factory. It’s run by a man named Alan, whose family moved to the island in the 1930s. He walked me through the entire process of making chocolate, from the cacao trees growing on his property, to forming the chocolate into bars, and all of the fascinating steps in-between. He also tried all of the chocolate varieties they produce. Their hot pepper chocolate is my favourite.
