The resort we stayed in had a super cool trapeze so I decided to try it out…
(Thanks to z for the awesome photography!)
Early on in our trip we found out that the bartenders made lattes…
We took full advantage each morning!
z likes to take pictures of feet. weird.
The best meal of our trip occurred when we left the resort. We needed a break from their food…and honestly we needed redemption for our foodie souls!
Before dinner, we checked out Port Lucaya Marketplace and Marina.
We stumbled upon Flying Fish and after looking at the menu, knew this was going to be our kind of restaurant!
We got to sit outside next to the water!
I had a perfect view of the oyster guy!
Cocktails: Mango Cilantro Margarita and Dirty Martini
We started with a half dozen raw oysters!
Wakame salad, Alaskan king crab, tempura avocado, aerated mango, sake compressed cucumber, sweet soy reduction, crispy rice
I ordered the butter poached local lobster tail with saffron risotto, edamame, and pea shoots!
z ordered the seared Lionfish, wheatberry taboulleh, sauce vierge, sunflower greens
Dessert: ginger caramel sponge, dolce de leche, chestnut, and ginger pear ice cream
Frozen tomato lollipops to finish the meal! Compliments of the chef…
Oh what a meal! It was incredible from beginning to end! Thank you Flying Fish for an awesome food experience!
I realized that although we took a good number of pictures, most of them look the same!
Beach, balcony, beer, repeat. We did A LOT of relaxing – just what the doctor ordered!
z and I headed to the Bahamas the first week of April for an engagementmoon…or really just for spring break!
We stayed at the Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach in Grand Bahamas. It was our first (and likely our last) all-inclusive resort experience.
The room was neat…
…but the view was incredible!
The company wasn’t so bad either ;)
Taking it all in!
More Bahamas posts to come…
The Wall Street Journal wins again. A recent weekend edition had this great recipe from JOSÉ ANDRÉS (DC represent!) and z wanted to try it out.
We bought frozen, Gulf shrimp and he served mine with GF bread! This meal was pretty incredible. z did a great job! My one tip for you – MAKE DOUBLE THE AMOUNT! There was not a morsel left! It was so good that we decided to go up and make for my parents on Saturday night! We doubled the recipe and again, nothing leftover! Twice in one week? It’s that good!
