Haitian food is influenced by French and African cuisines. Although Haitians have similarity in taste to the rest of the Caribbean, they are different in the sense that the typical Haitian dish has lots of rice and vegetable. The Haitian food remains moderately spicy.
Almost all Haitian dishes are accompanied with rice or plantain. The rice is usually cooked with red or black beans. Plantains can be served either fried or boiled. Rice and beans can be found every where you go in Haiti. The way Haitian rice is prepared varies depending what part of the country you happen to be. For instance, in some regions, the people cook their rice with coconut juice, but in the North, they do not.
The People from Cap-Haitian are famous for "Viande avek Noi" a specialty that I would recommend to anyone visiting that region of Haiti.
Some of the most popular dishes in Haiti include Griot or Fried pork, Rice and bean, Banane Fri, Mais a pois, Legume, Poisson Gro Sel.
