This November I went on a trip to the Bahamas with a friend.  I had a wonderful time. We left early in the morning from JFK airport and got to the Bahamas around 2:45pm. As soon as we landed we were greeted by warm lovely tropical air.  It was a much-needed break from the now cold weather of New York.  While at the airport I ran into a guy who just so happen to be a member of my brother Fraternity.  We exchanged info with another and made plans for him to be one of our tour guides of his lovely Island.

My Culinary adventure of the Bahamas starts at Breezes, the All-inclusive resort that we stayed at. There we dined on everything including Ackee and Salt Fish, (Ackee fruit is bright red. When ripe, it bursts opens to reveal three large black seeds and bright yellow flesh. The flesh of the Ackee is popular as a breakfast food (when cooked it looks and tastes much like scrambled eggs), to a regular breakfast spread of French Toast, Pancakes, Sausage and etc.  While the food at the resort was wonderful and delicious, I wanted to experience more of the foods that the locals made and enjoyed on a daily basis.  I had one of my friends and fellow Bahama native take us out and go try some Conch! I tried it every way possible. I had fried conch, & conch salad, lol however they made it I was going to try it at least once, and it was well worth it! Conch is a delicious shellfish that almost has the taste of a combo between shrimp & lobster, but when fried almost has a calamari feel. We had this lovely conch feast at Goldies, a restaurant in the an area called the Fish Fry.

For my next and final stop on my culinary Bahamas adventure I went to the Atlantis Resort, where we restaurant hopped and tried as much food as possible.  As well as enjoy a few activities like the Aquarium and Atlantis water park.

So for those looking for a great vacation spot filled with GREAT EATS, I would suggest a trip to the Bahamas.  They have gorgeous beaches, friendly people, a great night life and even better food.
