When it opened in 1984, the Malliouhana hotel didn’t just launch tourism in Angullla, it also forever changed the island’s food scene. More and more, chefs on the island looked to step up their game to match the level of cuisine at the property. While the hotel is now in the midst of a renovation ahead of a reopening, the culinary tree it spawned continues to grow. There are more than 100 restaurants on the island of just around 13,000 people, giving it more top-notch eateries per capita than any other place in the West Indies, from local joints to outposts of haute cuisine.
