I land relatively late in Nassau and get to my hotel by about 6pm. It's getting close to dinner time and I'm hungry. I had inquired about the local cuisine from some coworkers of mine. Also, I asked my concierge not where to direct tourists, but where they would eat when they got off work later. They all seemed to have a common theme: the Fish Fry.
The Fish Fry is an interested place. It's located in an area called Arawak Cay and it's essentially a street lined with restaurants all touting to be the best at one thing: Conch. Conch in all ways, shapes and form were being advertised on chalkboards and menus that lined the street. I was enticed by a particular place that popped out in my mind that Friday night as my coworker had told me about it: Twin Brothers. I saw Twin Brothers II and figured that I could always go back and try out Twin Brothers I when I had a chance.
As I was greeted by a very nice host, I was seated at a rather lonely table. I promptly ordered a local beer by the name of Kalik. Apparently, these come in three styles: Light, Regular, and Gold. Light was probably my favorite to drink in the hot weather. Gold was a tad too alcoholic in nature. Regular was good, but I was drawn to the crispness of the Light.
Day Two: I partied a bit too hard the night before and therefore the number of meals I could fit in before the wedding was cut from two down to one. Nonetheless, I forged on and made my way back to the Fish Fry. The number of restaurants open at this time of day was reduced by about half. I stopped by a place that I noticed the night before for this one dish of theirs: fried barracuda. I really wanted to try it out of both curiosity and hunger. This is why I ultimately chose Goldie's. The interior of this restaurant was very open and had a good flow to the organization. You can tell quite easily that this place was part bar, part restaurant. The number of people out having an early afternoon drink greatly outnumbered the number of diners. This did not deter me one bit. Unfortunately, they did not have barracuda on this day. No matter, I had bigger fish to fry. (OK. I'm so sorry for the pun, but now that I see it on the screen, I can't take it off.)
I wanted to order more. I really wanted to. I'm not going to comment on the food at the wedding because that's not why I was at the wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony and we all were incredibly blessed and honored to be a part of such a wondrous occasion. For me, my foodie needs were satisfied. I left the Bahamas with a full stomach and a slight hangover. Life is good. Cheers!
