New Rice Bowls at Bahama Breeze and $50 Gift Card Giveaway!

Casey and I were invited to try the new Rice Bowls at Bahama Breeze.  I was really excited because Bahama Breeze just happens to be one of my favorite restaurants. It's affordable, and delicious, and I always feel like I am on a tropical vacation while there.

 

My all time favorite drink at Bahama Breeze is the Painkiller. But, since we were here trying new things, Casey and I both decided to be adventurous and we had a BahamaRita (pictured above is Casey's drink).

 

Here is mine, and my cute little Buggy :-). 

After our drinks, the Rice Bowls arrived. I had the  West Indies Chicken Curry, and Casey had the Asian Chicken and Vegetable. 

The West Indies Chicken Curry Bowl is sautéed chicken, chickpeas and tomatoes simmered in a traditional West Indies curry sauce with coconut milk. Served over basmati rice with warm Naan bread and roasted pineapple chutney.


The Asian Chicken and Vegetable is sautéed chicken, shiitake mushrooms, bok choy, bell peppers and edamame in a sweet chili and Ginger sauce served over basmati rice and topped with peanuts.


I was totally in LOVE with mine. Since my husband is from the West Indies, I felt I could really be a good judge of this one, and it was right on with the flavors. 

Casey liked hers alot too, but I couldn't get much information from her, because she was so busy eating! 

There are a few other varieties of the Rice Bowls including:

  • Chipotle Beef - Sautéed beef sirloin, fresh corn and black beans in chipotle sauce served over basmati rice and cheese; topped with sour cream, fresh salsa and ripe avocado.
  • Vegetarian Asian Tofu - Sautéed tofu, Shiitake mushrooms, bok choy, bell peppers and edamame in a sweet chili and ginger sauce; served over basmati rice and topped with peanuts.
  • Carnitas - slow roasted pork, sautéed with chorizo sausage, fresh corn, sweet plantains and garbanzo beans in a cumin-citrus sauce served over yellow rice. 
  • Shrimp Creole -  tender shrimp in a Caribbean creole sauce, chorizo sausage, sweet peppers, olives and tomatoes served over basmati rice. 
The addition of the new Rice Bowls to the menu is just one way that Bahama Breeze is continuing to feed guests’ island spirits. The restaurant recently introduced a new Late Night Happy Hour offering half-price appetizers Sunday through Thursday, from 9 pm to close (availability, times and specific offerings may vary by location).
