Da Junkanoo Shak

As a regular viewer of Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, I'm always looking for that hole-in-the-wall place that features REAL food.


Da Junkanoo Shak in Nassau, Bahamas seemed to fit that bill.


The menu looked promising.

You may be familiar with conch (pronounced "konk") shells. They are basically GIANT snails. The meat of the conch is second in popularity only to the escargot and is very popular in the Bahamas (and the West Indies too).



We started with conch fritters.


They were yummy, kind of a corn bread-y type dough with a bit of conch right in the middle.


I ordered a conch salad. Really good and now I can see those hot peppers that are sitting on top of the salad and man, they were some hot!


Richard had a conch burger. Yum.


We washed it all down with a couple of local beers.


Gotta love Kalik! Unfortunately it is not exported and can only be enjoyed in the Bahamas. Okay so when's the next plane?
