Da Conch Shack

We're loving all the fresh seafood on this island!

Last night we had dinner with another couple from Boston at the restaurant Coyoba, where I had a Corvina fish special.

Today, we travelled out to Da Conch Shack, a fantastic spot on the beach serving all manner of conch (deep fried, pan fried, stewed, curried...) and some really good jerk chicken.

The best part was seeing how the conch go from sea to table (and glossy souvenir shell, as well). Check out the photos below: (1) entrance to the restaurant (2) empty shells are plentiful in the water; below them are large nets full of live conch; (3) men cart buckets of conch up onto the beach and (4) give 'em a whack with a hammer to dislodge the conch from its shell; (5) another man then pounds it with a meat tenderizer before sending it into the kitchen. It was very tasty!
