    Taste of Asia
    Taste of Asia
    You may have traveled to the Caribbean for some time under the sun in the Bahamas, but you can still send your palate to the Far East on a culinary adventure at some of Baha Mar’s Asian restaurants. Katsuya (seen here) is a pairing of master sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi’s fresh takes on Japanese classics with design icon Philippe Starck’s sleek and sultry interiors. From braised abalone to truffle dumplings and signature Peking Deck, Shuang Ba serves dishes that will come as surprises to many diners, taking Chinese cuisine in decidedly gourmet directions in a dramatic space. At the casual Stix Noodle Bar, you can either dine at the restaurant or get your order to go in a Chinese takeout box. The chefs pay a nod to the Bahamas with local ingredients like the sea conch in their congee.

    A trip to Baha Mar should include sampling some of the Bahamas’ local dishes and ingredients. The unassuming and charming Conch Shack celebrates the local staple, namely Bahamian conch, with a variety of dishes featuring the ingredient, like the conch salad seen here. The daiquiri may have been born in Cuba, but Bahamians elevated the signature tropical cocktail to new levels. You can order it made with an impressive choice of fresh fruits at the Daq Shack. At T2, an upscale, open-air lounge, you can enjoy two of the Caribbean’s more refined items: aged rums and fine cigars, both accompanied by performances by local musicians and warm ocean breezes.

    Dining on the Beach
    Dining on the Beach
    Every island getaway calls for at least a few meals with your feet in the sand or a swimming pool. El Jefe (seen here) is a beachside retro-styled eatery with its kitchen located in an aluminum Airstream and its tables on the beach. Order classic margaritas, handmade sopes, and other light, fresh bites. There is something about Latin American cuisine that makes it taste even better under the Caribbean sun. The Drift Bar & Grill serves empanadas and ceviches, as well as local beers and tropical cocktails, at its casual poolside setting. Another poolside option, The Palms, has a menu of country-club favorites and is the place to go when you are in the mood for a burger, club sandwich, or fresh salad.

    Even at odd hours of the day, or night, you aren’t limited to the room service menu at Baha Mar. A 24-hour favorite of night owls, the Swimming Pig is a contemporary, upscale take on a traditional British pub, serving conch sliders, burgers, bar snacks, and upscale fare. For breakfast or dinner, a world of flavors awaits at Regatta.

For a taste of the Bahamas, turn to classics like conch fritters, lamb curry, and peas and rice. The roast chicken (seen here) and macaroni and cheese are always favorites.
