In Haiti, tap-taps are brightly colored pickup trucks turned public taxis, and their tropi-psychedelic paint schemes inspire the decor at this excellent Haitian eatery. This is no Manhattan-style South Beach lounge – here you dine under bright murals of Papa Legba, guardian of the dead, emerging from a Port-au-Prince cemetery. Meals are a happy marriage of West African, French and Caribbean: spicy pumpkin soup, snapper in a scotch-bonnet lime sauce, curried goat and charcoal-grilled Turks and Caicos conch. Make sure you try the mayi moulen , a signature side of cornmeal smothered in a rich bean sauce – bloody delicious! If you need some liquid courage, shoot some Barbancourt rum, available in several grades (all strong).
