Favorite thing: Overall, food in the Bahamas is quite pricy, both near and away from Bay St. and Paradise Island. Menu items priced in the $30 range were routine. Prices in grocery stores were much higher than what I was accustomed to paying. Going native doesn't save you a whole lot, though they have takesaways that can give you sandwiches for relatively good prices ($3-5). We found a place called Twin Brothers that served both Bahamians and (mostly hispanophone) tourists for $15-20 a plate. The food was OK, not great, but they seem to take pride in their frozen drinks.

Fondest memory: Bahamian cuisine isn't all that different from the food in the southern US. Some dishes are identical, but others, like jerked chicken, are rather similar, not alike. Most of the jerked chicken I saw resembled more of a barbecued chicken seasoned with jerk spices. They have mac and cheese, peas and rice, things like that. Of course the seafood is very good as well, but you will get what you pay for.
