Nassau, Bahamas: Twin Brothers
Just when I thought I couldn’t find anything but mediocre overpriced hotel food, I stumble upon Twin Brothers. We took a rapist-van-looking taxi into town to visit a little area called “The Fish Fry”. It’s a strip of pastel painted restaurants/bars serving local food for those looking for a more authentic place to hang out outside the resorts.
We went ahead and sat at a picnic table outside, and ordered the famous daiquiris. Delicious! But our intoxicated taste buds knew better. When we asked the waitress, she confirmed there’s no alcohol in them. We immediately pushed the drinks aside, feeling confused, betrayed, and taken advantage of. Never again will we waste calories on VIRGIN drinks!
We order the conch fritters. They are greasy in the best way, worthy of each calorie. For dinner, we share a plate of blackened salmon, rice and beans, and cole slaw. All the flavors of the Caribbean were in our bellies mixing through our digestive tracks with all the local Kalik beer we drank earlier at the beach. Nothing says VACATION like a bloated beer gut on the beach!
