Saint Helena: St Helena Food Recap

You don’t get to try a lot on a short visit. Most of the food on St Helena is British-influenced – like pudding and fish’n’chips. Two of the things are quite unique – the St Helena plo (a curry-like stew) and St Helena crab cakes. There is also unique St Helena ice-cream. They don’t make their own beer but they distilled three special alcohols – Jamestown Gin (juniper from the central highlands), White Lion Spiced Rum (supposedly a recipe brought by sailors in the 17th century), and a truly unique Tungi (distilled from prickly pear cactus from the desert of the western shore of the island).
