Bonafide Bermudian First things first: If you don’t sample the Bermuda fish sandwich whilst you’re on the island, you will sorely miss out on a local cuisine tradition, one that has restaurateurs jockeying for the top spot on various “best of” lists. At the Swizzle Inn, you can enjoy one of the best fish sandwich presentations paired with

another island staple, the Rum Swizzle. The Swizzle Inn does it up right with a huge portion of local grilled wahoo coated in island seasonings, spicy slaw, lettuce, tomato and their home-made tartar sauce, all piled high on local raisin bread. As for the Rum Swizzle, it’s Bermuda’s premier cocktail with of a blend of Goslings rums and fruit juices — typically lemon, orange and pineapple — sweetened with falernum. With the Swizzle Inn’s distinction as the home of this bright and cheery island drink, you’ll want to be sure to give it a try whilst you’re here.

T

he combination of ingredients, flavours and cooking methods you’ll find in Bermuda is truly one of a kind. British cuisine is decidedly dominant — and no surprise since the island is a British Overseas Territory. Enjoy steak and ale or shepherd’s pie, battered fish and chips or a carved roast beef with Yorkshire pudding. And don’t forget that a frosty local pint is great to pair with these hearty British meals. The island’s proximity to the U.S. means you’ll also find items like burgers and fries on many restaurant lunch menus. Bermuda’s other geographical feature — namely, that it’s an isolated island in the middle of the Atlantic — ensures that fresh seafood is plentiful and readily available. African staples like cassava show up in Bermudian dishes, a relic of the enslaved Africans who once worked as indentured servants on the island, tying Bermudian cuisine to that of Caribbean islands, whose foods have similar influences. The island’s Portuguese residents, initially brought to Bermuda in the 19th century as contract workers and who today make up about 10 percent of the population, contributed dishes like Portuguese red bean soup and malasadas, a type of donut. And then there are uniquely Bermudian concoctions like the famous fish sandwich served on raisin bread with tartar sauce, and cocktails like the Rum Swizzle and Dark ’n Stormy. Bermuda’s dining venues are as varied as its cuisine. Street food is dispensed via funky decorated food trucks, modern bistros serve up fresh cuisine with vegetarian and even vegan options, British and Irish-style pubs present perfectly crisp fish and chips and upscale restaurants serve to-die-for dishes that will be a highlight of your vacation.


Voted ‘Best Seafood Restaurant,’ Aurora’s seasonal menu features fresh local seafood and produce from Bermuda’s best fisherman and farmers. We are committed to sourcing sustainable ingredients from local suppliers, ocean to table. We look forward to welcoming you to Aurora at Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Resort & Spa.

AURORA OCEAN TO TABLE | 27 HARBOUR ROAD, PAGET PARISH 441-232-8686 | GA@AURORA.BM | WWW.AURORA.BM


The Loren’s culinary team works with a variety of fishermen and smallscale farmers to source ingredients for the resort’s restaurants.

The other cultural culinary experience you must seek out is Bermuda’s traditional Sunday codfish breakfast. Bearing evidence of the island’s numerous cultural influences, this is a hearty meal of salted codfish with a side of boiled potatoes and eggs, bacon and onion cooked with stewed tomatoes and paired with slices of fresh banana and avocado. This dish is generally served only on Sunday at island restaurants, so be sure to set aside your Sunday morning for this Bermudian breakfast tradition. Deep Blue Eats Some of the freshest, most delicious dishes you’ll find in Bermuda start in the crystal-blue waters that surround the island. Healthy varieties of fish follow the currents here, making

seafood delights quite easy to find. If you’re here from September through March, when the spiny lobster can be harvested, be sure to give this crustacean a try. This species doesn’t have claws, unlike its Maine counterpart; but there’s plenty of meaty goodness in the tail. The legs and antennae also offer up juicy little bits of goodness, well worth the effort. You’ll find numerous other species of fish in Bermuda, expertly prepared to bring out the best flavours in dishes like pan-fried rockfish, baked snapper, pan-seared tuna and grilled wahoo. At venues like Lobster Pot Restaurant & Boathouse Bar, specialities of the house include a succulent seafood feast, pan-fried local fish topped with banana and almonds, and of course, lobster.

s the name might suggest, fish is a highlight on the Wahoo’s Bistro & Patio menu. Chef and co-owner Alfred Konrad puts his personal spin on classic Bermudian ingredients, setting trends with dishes like rockfish Picasso, which pairs the mild, flaky fish with a mosaic of fresh fruits and ginger. Alfred is Austrian by birth but has been in Bermuda since 1981, cutting his teeth at notable venues like the Loews Hotel and Tom

VISIT BERMUDA

Moore’s Tavern. Alfred’s passion for cooking has been awarded time and time again, and his Bermuda fish chowder has won several contests and awards. Highlighting local ingredients and cooking styles is a hallmark of Chef Alfred’s repertoire. “Locally sourced products play a large part in our menu, as we buy from five Bermudian fishermen and use their catch in daily specials,” says Alfred. “We also use seasonal produce from local farmers.” The Bermuda Triangle entrée allows diners to sample three local fish selections — wahoo, rockfish and mahi mahi — cooked three different ways and paired with Bermuda peas and rice, fried plantains and home-made paw paw chutney. Wahoo’s dedicates an entire page of its specials menu to varied preparations of the wahoo that swim in Bermuda’s waters. From creamy chowder to a wahoo sampler to smoked wahoo pâté, each dish offers a unique way to enjoy the mild white fish’s flavour. Other specials to look out for when they’re in season include lionfish, rockfish ribs and lobster. For a locally inspired meal from start to finish, pair your dish with a prickly pear martini, made with the cactus fruit grown on the island, and finish with a Bermuda banana split. “Preparing wonderful dishes using high-quality Bermudian ingredients whilst keeping prices reasonable benefits everyone,” says Alfred. Alfred’s philosophy of cooking all orders as though they are for a special occasion has helped Wahoo’s Bistro earn the special endorsement of locals, who’ve helped ensure the restaurant’s success by recommending it to visitors. Diners come back to Wahoo’s again and again for the warm, friendly vibe, harbour views and perfect preparations of the freshest ingredients available served by Bermudian staff.
