Being on a holiday on The BEAUTIFUL island of Sint Maarten I thought it would be a good opportunity to recommend one of the best places I’ve been to on this island.
Sint Maarten is a small island. Still it’s really hard to find your way around it without a car. When you drive away from the airport and follow airport road into the interior of the island, you will cross a small bridge which separates the yacht marina from the open sea. After about 300 meters on your left there is a place called Top Carrot.
Turn left! You will be sorry if you don’t. Top carrot is probably one of the healthiest food and drink establishments on the island. Whereas most of the dishes on the island contain greasy meat and rice and beans, top carrot is the place to get your daily fruit and veggie intake.
It has all the fruit juices and smoothies you can imagine, blended fresh right in front of you. The salads and sandwiches are delightful too. Try the lentil soup, or the courgette and cauliflower quiche, both equally yummy.
Inside is nice and air conditioned, and the place also has plenty of books on healthy living, yoga etc. besides they sell cute jewelry and soaps. A bit of everything really.
The staff is patient and friendly, which cannot be said of many other places in Sint Maarten.
Please don’t miss this gem when you visit the island, it’s truly an absolute happy and health boost.
