When you visit a new place, it is fun to not only indulge in all the tourist activities, but to also learn a bit about local life. While our Bermuda Resort boasts 4 fabulous onsite restaurants, many of our guests like to go off-property to visit some of the dining spots favored by locals. If you want to Eat Like a Local during your visit, then here are a few of the Bermuda Restaurants to try.
Bouchee Restaurant - Codfish Breakfast
In the early days of Bermuda, settlers salted their cod to make it last. From that was born this traditional Bermuda breakfast. The plate is heaping with salted cod, potatoes, boiled eggs, and avocado. Many restaurants serve this local favorite, and Bouchee Restaurant is known for serving one of the best codfish breakfasts on Bermuda!
The Hog Penny – Fish Chowder
Fish chowder isn’t, of course, exclusive to Bermuda, but it is a dish that locals love. The Bermuda version is spicy, and locals tend to add a bit of Black Seal Rum to their chowder to add even more kick. The filling dish is great for lunch or dinner, and The Hog Penny serves some of Bermuda’s best.
Drink Like a Local
Rum. Not just any rum. Gosling’s Black Seal Rum. It’s as much a part of Bermuda’s local food scene as anything listed above. It’s not just for drinking. The rum is also used to make delicious rum cakes. Bring some back home, so your family and friends can also eat like a local! Pick up a cake or ten at the Bermuda Rum Cake Company or The Dockyards.
If you’d like additional suggestions about where to eat like a local, our Concierge will be happy to help. Our onsite dining options, Sea Breeze, Café Lido, Mickey’s Beach Bistro, and Blue Point also offer fabulous food including some selections that are popular with locals.
