food wagons you can recommend

Postby Christine (Swe) » Sun Dec 11, 2005 2:46 pm

Hi everyone,

Only 11 days left until we go to Anguilla.
I'm a little ashamed to admit that we have never
in any of our previous 7 weeks on the island
visited any food wagon. But we really want to try
that one or two days this coming Christmas
because we stay for more than two weeks so there
will be time for that.

I know some places have been mentioned here but
cannot find them in the archive. And I remember
many of you have recommended some of them saying
they are so good!

Which wagons do you recommend?
(We stay on BBE so if they are in the Valley it
would be easy for us to get to them.)
And on which days are they open?

(I know this is a odd topic as most food questions
are about the expensive restaurants. ;-)

Hungry's run by Irad who used to have a place at Sandy Ground. As you're coming into the Valley from the airport direction, it's on the 1st corner on the right (just before you get to the Post Office). I know he's there in a large light green truck/van M-F from 11:30 on & I think I saw him there on Saturday (the days run together!). Very good quesadillas & salads and soups, starting at about $5.

food wagons

Yum! Orreil Connor has a silver wagon parked beside the high school, and is open for lunch and dinner. His is the wagon with the prices on the black board beside the window. I think his ribs (baked) and chicken (stewed) are really superb. Have them with either fries or rice and peas. Always fresh, and mighty fine. Although I am not brave, he always has Bull-foot soup and Stew Goat, if you want to try some truly local delicacies.............

I second IRAD ( Hungrys Van.) It is lime green with flowers painted all over it. On sat a lot of the locals do all sorts of food in the Valley near the High school and Farmers market. Not a van but if you haven't treid the new Fat Cat Gourmet by Albert Lakes Grocery stop in. Very good food. Try the Coconut cookies. Sinful

food wagons

On Saturday's across from the fruit/veggie stand in the Valley there is a tent, I think it is Ken's BBQ. We always make it a point to stop at least once. He has awesome chicken, ribs, and pork.

Great info

Postby Christine (Swe) » Mon Dec 12, 2005 11:26 am

Thank You, for the answers!

I will print them out so I'm sure to
remember them correctly.

(I found lots of typos and wrong English in my
question to you. One was: We are not staying at BBE
(I wonder what that can be ... ;-), we are for sure
and of course staying at SBE and at our favourite
hotel there, Madeariman. It will be very interesting
to see how the new SBBH (KU) will increase or
decrease the total relaxation we have found during
our previous visits to that "best spot on Anguilla".

I'm going to write a trip report when we have
returned to snowy Sweden, (10th of January), and I'll
write about if there were any changes when staying
next to KU instead of staying next to SBBH ....
And of course I will write about which food wagons
we visited and how much we liked them :-)

Thanks again for all your recommendations,
and if you have any more I would love to recieve

Christmas Greetings to Everyone!

BBE to Olaug

Postby Christine (Swe) » Mon Dec 12, 2005 1:20 pm

Yes, of course .......
Must been because that was the expression I
felt in my heart when I made the typo :-)))

(and for sure it is, lets change the
name to Best Beach Ever instead of
Shoal Bay East... Ok for everyone ...??
... :-))

forgot the food wagon

Postby Christine (Swe) » Sun Feb 05, 2006 9:38 am

Hi everyone,

Sorry I forgot to mention our first and only visit to a food wagon. I had all your recommendations with me. But we only managed to try one, and unfortunately only once. But the one we tried was very good. It was IRAD's Hungrys Van. Close to the roundabout (the first one you come to, if coming from West End of the island.)

They had lots of customers the day we were there, so it is for sure very popular. We ordered three different quesadillas and one shrimp pasta. (The shrimp pasta was the most expensive on the menu, but still very inexpensive!) While waiting for our food to be ready, I think I counted to approx. 15 other customers coming ordering different things. So it is for sure popular!

What did we think?
We loved the food when thinking of how little it cost. So if you want to try a food wagon I want to recommend this one.

wrong direction

Postby Christine (Swe) » Sun Feb 05, 2006 9:47 am


Sorry, wrong direction from me. Not the first roundabout when coming from West End. Bartlett's is situated in the first roundabout, when coming from West End. Hungry's is situated right after the "second" roundabout when coming from West End (where you have a choise of taking the last exit to go to the airport).

And as Mary wrote: just before the Post Office !
