Finding a new favorite in Bahama Breeze

Every so often when getting together with my best friend, we decide to have lunch or dinner at a restaurant near the King of Prussia Mall. We favored going to one place until I found it had shut its doors at a particular location. Up to that point, it had been part of the plan on a fun November day of checking out a car show, grabbing a bite to eat and catching a new movie. I actually just learned of that restaurant site’s closure the day before meeting with my friend. We were surprised as it was such a fun place to go; waitstaff always friendly, food so delicious and overall great atmosphere. For those reasons, I’d still stop at other locations in my area.

Looking for another restaurant, we agreed on Bahama Breeze; I had already been there once before, yet my friend hadn’t. She was sold on it. Plus, its location in the same parking area as the theater we’d be going to later added extra convenience.

By the time we arrived at the Caribbean-inspired restaurant, my phone battery was too low for any food and beverage photos. However, we loved the place and I knew we’d be back, making it a new favorite for lunch or dinner to complete a girls’ day out. Mouthwatering pics to share on Instagram (or on foodie app Foodspotting) would have to be delayed for another time.

It wasn’t until early January that my best friend and I returned to Bahama Breeze, joined also by several other friends. This time, it was for my belated birthday party and despite the icy cold start to 2018, island flavor and atmosphere helped us forget about winter’s chill. How can you not feel like you’re relaxing on the sands of a tropical island beach, when sipping a cool beverage out of a pineapple?

Over drinks and appetizers, my friends and I shared remember-whens from high school as well as catching each other up on anything new. The laughter-filled chit chat fit well with the casual atmosphere around us. It was as though we were all vacationing in the Caribbean and hanging out at a beachfront bar. That’s another element I enjoy about this dining establishment; if you’re looking for laid-back vibes while savoring great food, give it a go!

I’ve never been one to munch on onion rings, but the ones served at Bahama Breeze are addictive! They’re a generous size and coconut adds to the yum factor of this shareable snack, which comes with a zesty dipping sauce. Photo to be added later.

For my main dish, I ordered what I had on my previous visit, the grilled salmon with mixed greens on a tostada. This is such a colorful seafood meal and features a delicious blend of flavors. A filling portion of salmon lies in its bed of mixed greens with corn, black bean salsa and avocado slices. Underneath it all is a layer of melted cheese covering a tortilla.

We almost had a unanimous round of dessert orders for the chocolate island. It’s easy to see why. Doesn’t this look amazing? If I knew how to make such a heavenly confection, it would entice me to take a bite all too often!

I’ve been to Bahama Breeze three times now and in each case, both greeters and waitstaff alike were friendly. The menu, which includes alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, can be difficult to choose from – but only due to so many tempting items! Whether you love seafood, steak, burgers, salads, there is something to delight anyone’s taste buds. Now, with spring just around the corner, I’m looking forward to a return visit of tropical eats on a warm and sunny day.
