This Is How We Eat: Bahama Breeze

It’s time for another installment of our delicious segment entitled This Is How We Eat. If you are unfamiliar with what’s going on here, please refer to our previous articles for more information. Now whenever the term Caribbean is thrown around to describe a type of food people serve at restaurants, my first thought is “This place is going to have seafood, and I’m not going to like it”. Thankfully the place we are going to take a look at offers way more than that, and does so in such an interesting, yet very delicious way, Bahama Breeze.

Established in 1996 in Orlando Florida, this island paradise has quickly become one of my new places to go to for some delightful Caribbean inspired cuisine. On my first visit there (which was only a few days ago) I ordered the Bimini Twist Pretzel with ground mustard and cheddar cheese sauce for an appetizer. After polishing that off, my main entree showed up, the Grilled Jamaican Jerk Chicken with a side of green beans and cinnamon mashed sweet potatoes. In between these two events occurring, my family shared their starters with me as well, which consisted of a cactus creation known as Yuca Fries, and some delicious Tomato and Basil Flatbread. This is where my journey ends though, because dessert wasn’t even a possibility at this point, but that’s ok anyways because the whole meal was satisfying to say the least.

The only issue that I had with place at all was with the drink I ordered. Their Bahama Mama was just too strong for my tastes. Now some people may say “Oh come on, don’t be a wimp, that’s how it is supposed to be”. To them I say go ahead and drink it if you want, just be prepared to have a medicine like taste in your mouth afterwards. Aside from my one problem though, this place is still definitely worth checking out.

If you happen to find a location near you, stop by and have a good time at Bahama Breeze, the experience is well worth the price of admission.
