Miss. Delicious #66 : The infamous Blue Sail beach restaurant!

in #food3 years ago

Dear Steemit friends :

To sustain a good level of energy for quality vacationing, one must consume not only enough food but also quality food.

In the Bahamas, big fancy hotels do not necessarily serve the quality foods one might seek. It is actually quite a surprise to find that Burgers / Sandwiches and Fries remain very popular dining choices. Certainly providing some familiarity to the state side visitors.

Of course, I have nothing against Burgers and Fries - they too can be very fine in quality and taste, but I really wanted more opportunity to try the local foods offering more Bahamian style dishes.

Today I'd like to take us on a quick journey to a local restaurant on the main island of Nassau.

Situated by Sandyport Beach, Blue Sails is a beach restaurant that offers spectacular views of the adjacent beach and sea.

Because of its vicinity to the ocean, it isn't hard to reason that the beach restaurant serves some of the freshest seafood around. Indeed, this is one of the reputations this little establishment has come to be known for.

The main seating area mimics the layout of a deck on a boat, the wooden floorboards, the large windows overlooking the ocean all give a sense of being on a boat.

Other than the white walls, and white finish on the tables, everything else is contrasted with blue cushions, cutlery, and table utensils.

Let's see the menu!

One of their specialities is Wood oven fired Pizza, mostly featuring Mediterranean style pizza's.

They also have a really nice drinks menu.

As you can see, aside from the classics, there are also some local Bahamian Cocktails to tickle your fancy.

The drinks menu is also hand plaited which is a craft the locals are known for. It's often seen in other products like mini bags, baskets and hats.

The drinks and cocktails can be bought and enjoyed at the 360 bar.

First up, we have the conch chowder soup. Perhaps the favourite starter that I have come to love in Bahamian cuisine.

I really like my soups to be thick and full of texture. As you can see, this conch chowder did not disappoint!

Next, the rocket salad with roasted tomatoes.

Next up, we have the cocktails!

The one on the left is Pina Colada, my all time favourite cocktail and one I always enjoy whilst travelling to exotic and tropical islands.

On the right we have the Blue Sails Cooler. It's a pretty accurate description of the ocean waters in Bahamas, extremely rich blue colour and packing a reasonable punch!

Oh, and of course, the Cherry on top is exactly that !

The first of the mains is the Curried Shrimps with fresh ginger, Cilantro, Okra & Coconut Milk. Even though it is a curry, the sauce is actually very mild. It tastes more milky than spicy - exactly the way I like it!

Tastes every bit as good as it looks. The prawns just dissolve in your mouth, seamlessly mixing with the curry and herbal sauce.

The star of the show has got to be this Fillet of Hog Snapper with Strawberry and Mango Salsa.

Prior to visiting Bahamas, I had never tasted the Snapper fish before. The Bahamian variety has a pretty unique taste which can only be described as pure bliss. With the water quality of the oceans here, the fish has taken on a new level of freshness that I have yet to fully appreciate.

Whats more, the Strawberry and Salsa dressing totally took me by surprise. Fresh Strawberries on the fish fillets, served on a bed of fried Plantain? Absolutely delectable.

Crispy Conch Fritters complete the meal as sides. I have to say, the Bahamian delicacies really love using conch, and why not? The conch meat is firm and white with a somewhat chewy texture, fried with peppers and onions then battered with flour, this dish is the Bahamian equivalent of the Indian Bhaji.

What an incredible night time experience the Blue Sail beach restaurant has to offer. Bahamian food is beginning to titillate my taste senses. The romantic atmosphere, the unique food, the ardent location, together forms a dining experience one can only expect from one of the most well received restaurants in Nassau.

It's such a shame that I couldn't visit during the day for some majestic day time scenery. But, just to give you an idea of the spectacular views you can expect if you decide to come during the day, here are some pictures from the official website showing how splendid the seaside views can be.

The coral reefs draw such a contrast to the gleaming blue and shallow water, as if forming a stripey coat pattern in the sea.

The blue theme extends to the seating area and dining utensils, perfectly framing the restaurant against the backdrop of endless natural blues in the water and the sky.

For those wanting the most romantic dining experience, the pier walkway leads to an ultra exclusive dining hut, right in the middle of the ocean.

I really wish my next visit, someone could take me there!

美好的海滨假期,除了享受阳光沙滩,美食的探索也是度假中不可缺少的一部分。巴哈马被称为美国人的后花园,所以巴哈马的食物大多迎合了美国游客的口味,汉堡三明治和薯条,是当地常见的食物。但是漂洋过海来到这里,当然想探索一下当地的特色美味。今天我想带大家去尝试一家拿骚海边的海鲜餐厅,它位于沙港海滩度假的海滨。虽然我去的时候是晚上,但是灯光非常漂亮。因为餐厅的名字叫做蓝色的风帆,所以整个餐厅的布置都是以蓝色为主。白色的墙和柱子配上麻绳,整个餐厅的装饰就像一艘船。

来之前我就听说这家餐厅在当地评价很高,餐厅开在临海的位置,也不难理解这家餐厅提供的海鲜有多新鲜。这一定是这家餐厅成名的重要因素。草编织品在拿骚非常有名,草编的小包,篮子和帽子。这个编织的菜单是我的最爱,周边用深蓝浅蓝的线,好像一件漂亮的艺术品。饮料单上推荐了不少巴哈马本地的鸡尾酒,是非常值得尝试的。手捧鸡尾酒,坐在这家餐厅的360度酒吧,听着海浪的声音,多么享受。再看食物单,著名的炭烧披萨是这里的特色。下面和我一起品尝bahamade特色菜肴吧。第一个上来的是海螺蛤蛎浓汤,拿骚的美食以海产品为主,海螺是当地最大的特色,拿骚的港口可以看到不少打捞海螺的渔船。海螺的味道确实新鲜,酸酸的口味,带上萝卜的爽口,味道完美。接下来是具有意大利风味的芝麻菜配烘烤番茄沙拉。下面上来2杯漂亮颜色的鸡尾酒,椰林飘香是这杯黄色的,也是我在海岛的最爱。他用朗姆酒,椰浆和菠萝汁为主,椰子配菠萝总觉得完美,甜中带酸。这杯蓝色的酒最能搭配今晚的主题,是以伏特加为主。第一个主菜是椰汁奶配咖喱虾,我非常享受带着椰汁飘香的虾味。

接下来这个是整顿晚餐的亮点,红鲡鱼配上新鲜的草莓和芒果,这种烤鱼配新鲜水果的吃法真的是第一次,并且这种鱼是只有巴哈马才有的特色鱼,真的让我尝一口就爱上了。这个主菜是配咖啡色的炒饭,味道丰富。鲜榨海螺球,味道很香,里面的海螺肉质细嫩,让我一个接一个吃的停不下来。希望大家喜欢我们今天的美食旅程,由于是晚上去的,没有拍到这家餐厅白天的美景,所以从这家餐厅官网找来几张图供大家欣赏。

Thanks steemdoge, still working on trying to improve on things. But I guess that's a continuing process!

Well it's def going in the right direction! I still haven't done an intro post so I have a lot more room to improve haha. Went through some of your past posts and love the Miss Opinionated's especially, I like your views on things. Take care ✌️

Awesome ! :)

Awesome ! :)

The food looks so delicious! Thanks for sharing!

The pictures tell your story without even reading your post. Looks very delicious!

Honestly this looks like a typical Bulgarian black sea restaurant.. The only difference would be that you'd end up spending 60USD for everything if you were in Bulgaria, compared to there.
Lovely adventure as always.. Hope to see more soon.
Cheers and all the best.
Goldie

ahahah i absolutely agree !

You do alot of fun things! I agree we must eat well to keep having fun and traveling. I appreciate all the work that you do . You have an interesting life

You posts always have many comments!

Your post is very interesting. By looking at your postings have added my insights about where to travel while enjoying the food. Actually I am also very happy to travel and eat or drink in different places. From your post I can a luxurious restaurant and also serves traditional food. I think it is rare there are restaurants that serve traditional food. I see you are very happy and like that place. I think that place will be everyone's favorite. Best regard

I know that subtle hint was directed at me. Lol. Just let me know when she I'll definitely take you there next time! 😍

I was so surprised to see how well it worked out with the fish actually ^0^

I'd be surprised just seeing it in the first place on the plate, so it's nice to know it tasted as good as it looked it would taste. A culinary adventure in a new place is never a dull thing 😋

The truth is that i am in love with you method of presentation, the pictures are excellent , the food are looking so delicious. you have done a good job by showcasing blue sail restaurateur. you have done a classical reporting on the activities in the restaurant. you deserved to be paid by the management. good job as usual. upvoted.

Keep up the wonderful content and stay beautiful! Spread da Love Yo! -Peaz

Seems a bit overpriced, but delicious :)

Well, I would say it is expensive, but not overpriced since I found it to be a valuable experience!

Awesome!!

Looks delicious, The way you organize your travel and choose the hotels are awesome. Are you doing by yourself? of do you have aides to do?

Share some cooking recipes too?

Thank you! I choose all of the hotels and travel destinations myself, I do often ask my friends who have already been where they recommend, but most of the time it's just a lot of research prior to leaving as well as some poking around the locals!

Wow.. beautiful!!! Now am hungry!

Just writing this post made me hungry! haha, thanks!

你的文章还是一如既往的给力,支持你,有空也来看看我写的小说,权当消遣吧。哈哈。

Everything looks very appetizing)))
Upvoted and resteem)))

thanks kleryk200!

Wow! the foods look so delicious.

It was refreshingly authentic, after eating burgers for most of my meals, I really started to believe the food at Bahamas wouldn't be that good. I'm glad I was wrong though!

If you want authentic it's generally best to avoid resorts, especially in the Caribbean. Great blog!

definitely.. This restaurant was far away from the Atlantis resort, and thankfully so!

Tasty food sweet

Hey, Steemit!
My name is jakir. I am from Indonesia. I am a toll seller. I just got to know Steemit and tried to figure out the rope. Any tips are greatly appreciated! I hope this will be a great way to share my pulse and blog posts, I cover life, roads, and random stories.

You can find me in most Social Media @jakir.Happy to connect with community steemit

I agree! Food = energy. And with that beautiful view it triples!

the multiplicative effect!

THANK YOU i love all the pictures and more people have to see this so i will resteem it

Looking delicious, colorful and attractive.

thank you ebohio!

Oh yeah! This makes me want to eat some delicious food and do some traveling while I am at it! Very nice photo's as well! I am definitely following you!

thank you iot-corp! Food is one of the human necessities and yet, one of the things that give us the most amount of happiness. We actually go through very measurable changes in our body chemistry when we eat food which we like (or dislike) and that can greatly affect our mood and tempo!

No wonder some people still value what is essentially a perishable good, more than something they might physically own for a long time but bring less happiness.

See your photos is like being traveling with you.
this is really amazing for me thank you !

Thanks andy, that's the feeling i'm trying to give!

Beautiful post as always. Thanks for sharing Miss @Sweetsssj

Every year, tourists flock to the Bahamas to enjoy the warm sun, sandy beaches and crystal clear water. When you're not lounging in the sun or enjoying the islands' tourism attractions, get a taste for the nation's cuisine by sampling its food at local restaurants. Given the Bahamas' proximity to the ocean, many varieties of seafood are common, but the country is known for several other types of food.

Seeing you doing what I aspire to do--travel the world--is reassuring. I hope to one day share my experiences with thousands as well!

Thank you so much! Travelling the world has been some what my childhood dream. As I've grown older, the desire seems to have only grown. I really do appreciate you and everyone who follows me for taking such an interest and I really hope that you can all experience the same one day too!

I'm going to Europe in September and I'm going to vlog/blog my experiences! I'm hoping it goes well and I can gain some following during that time! Thanks for your response, it's nice to see that you truly care for your community.

Beautiful Blue Sail beach restaurant with fresh food

Not sure if that is you who takes the pictures but most of them are really great, well placed, good light. Awesome once again!

thanks! Yep, me with my iPhone :)
(Usually I use a DSLR or my new camera, but I didn't have the right lens with me to take pictures with my heavy hitting camera(s) this time)

I am impressed. Keep going.
Good voyage

bon voyage indeed!

I have to tell you... After reading your story and checking out these pics, I am HUNGRY! I have to get back down to the Bahama's pronto. Thanks for reminding me.

Wow! The food looks delicious.
It's made me hungry, I think it must be time for lunch.

I'd love to visit bahamas someday..and when i do.., i'll definitely go check the Blue Sail beach restaurant. Thanks for the info..😁

This is amazing. I want to do the same here in South Africa and share with everyone the wonders of this beautiful country. Keep up the good work. This is food for the soul!

Amazing post, keep it up! :D

Hey sweetsssj, you seem to be well traveled and I am interested in hearing your opinion on this - Out of all places you visited, which do you feel stands out the most, or is the best, most interesting, or "The must go" place in the world?

beautiful ... Thank you for sharing...

Great Post! And that is some very appealing food!

If ever I am lucky enough to be in the area, I will give that place a visit!

Thank you for sharing 😊

Very nice & delicious. It tempted me to travel there.
Thanks for your report. 🙂

This is exactly the type of seafood restaurant I like. Freshness is always imperative but it takes on an added importance when you're talking about seafood. Fresh items, prepared with a unique creativity and arranged by knowledgeable hands makes places like this a little slice of heaven by the sea. The view doesn't hurt, either!

you have a way with words! I totally agree. It's rare to have a combination that ticks pretty much all the boxes!

your delicious post made my mouth watered Lovely ;)

Realy so lipsmacking narration that I started Imgining the recipe. Thanks, keep smiling.

Blue Sail beach restaurant!
Their food so healthy and delicious.

Wow what a lovely place! That rocket salad looks fantastic :)
Thank you for taking us with you to this beautiful place on earth ♥ Enjoy your time dear!

Thaaaannnk youuu! Rocket salad is such a strange taste for me, atleast compared with something like regular iceberg lettuce. Still, I realised it is more common these tropical islands and I have come to like it some what.

Yeah that's true, it has that natural spicy taste to it :-)
I guess in the restaurant it would be the only option for me as a vegan - plus the cocktails ha ha. Looking forward to more impressions of paradise - enjoy yourself ♥

Oh my God when i will have this type of life :(

Do like and follow me i'll like and follow u 2
