Bahamas Food- Delicious Island Treats

Apr 10, 2008
If you want to make sure you get the best food at the Bahamas it's best to take on a bit of that special island flavor. Don't expect to get the same food you get at home! Sure, you can choose to get a cheeseburger, but it will cost you a fortune over getting something special like a lobster tail.

It makes sense that island cuisine is the favorite food of the Bahamas. in fact, food itself is incredibly important to the Bahamians. If you go to their local college of the Bahamas you can ONLY get a degree in hotel and restaurant management.

It's amazing, students really do come from different countries just to go to school on the Bahamas island. Just like many of there students, the foods that are not common have to be imported. Were you wondering about that cheeseburger? That has to be imported, which adds a considerable amount to the price tag.

The most popular food that you would find in the Bahamas are conch, grouper, and the spiny tail lobster. You can also find chicken, lamb, goat, and pork entrees. If you want true Bahamas cuisine you would do well to go to the smaller local restaurants. The others Americanize everything so much that you may as well be eating at home!

One of the main foods in the Bahamas is the queen conch. Many believe this to be a great aphrodisiac, which is why it is added to so many dishes. There is problem with conch shell disposal at the beach, however.

There are oh so many different ways to prepare conch shells. It can be chopped, marinated, put in lime juice, in salads, and as a fillet. You will also find it in chowder, fritters, chow mien, submarine sandwiches, pizza, and a whole lot more. You can make it a challenge to try and eat conch a different way for each day of your trip.

Not everyone is a seafood eater so the restaurants do try to cater to that. You can find imported meats, and some local chickens. The Chicken Souse is a real winner. Though there can be some surprising ingredients! Always make sure to ask before eating.

You will also love the drinks that the Bahamas island offers. Kalik beer is one that is brewed locally. Enjoy this beer chilled with your favorite meal. Rum is another favorite drink. This is flavored with everything from coconut to bananas.

No matter what food you choose to eat at the Bahamas, you'll be glad you tried some of that favorite local flavor. Of course, you have to get there first! Stop dreaming and book that vacation!
