Eating like a local is one of the best ways to experience cultural immersion, and Nassau Paradise Island in The Bahamas is no different. The area’s promotion board declared, “When visiting Nassau Paradise Island, an authentic Bahamian dinner is an absolute must! Combining Spanish, West African and British influences, the flavors of The Bahamas will take you on a culinary journey you won’t soon forget.”
Vittles from the sea include the light-tasting Grouper fish, the versatile Conch and Bahamian Rock Lobster.
Peas n’ Rice, featuring local Pigeon peas, the legendary Souse stew, Johnny Cakes and Traditional Bahamian Macaroni and Cheese round out the savory dishes.
For dessert, try the Guava Duff pastry, Rum Cake or the wide variety of fresh tropical fruits — favorites include guava, mangoes, tamarind, soursop, sapodilla, melons and passion fruit.
