If you haven’t visited Virgin Gorda in a while you might not know that the oft-delayed North Sound Road was finally completed and paved. Yes it’s still a white knuckler with few guard rails and a very steep incline (you still need to watch out for the goats). But the breathtaking views and now the food are worth risking your health over. Hog Heaven opened up at the peak of the road. Enjoy views of Mountain Point, Anegada, the North Sound and beyond with an ice-cold Red Stripe at hand and a heaping plate
of freshly slaughtered pork (organically raised from the owner’s herd), fish, potato slaw, and pigeon peas and black beans on the side. This joint (no disrespect) opens at 9 AM and closes when “last man standing” leaves the bar, 7 days a week. Hog Heaven is a welcome addition to the island culinary scene with reasonable prices, freshly prepared food, friendly service, spectacular views, and ice-cold brewskis. It’s a 5 minute drive from Sunset Watch Villa and 20 minutes from the Valley.
Maybe some of those pesky goats will end up as fresh stew some Saturday night.
