My husband and I were shopping at Trader Joe's in Towson last weekend and stopped in at Bahama Breeze for dinner. I rarely make raving comments on chain restaurants, but the meal I had there was quite good. I don't think I can do the extensive visual description of the meal as others have done on here... But I will try.
After our shopping trip at TJ's (BTW I highly recommend the Lemon Pepper Parpadelle pasta!) it was about 8:00 - we were hungry - and decided to try Bahama Breeze since it was "right there". The wait was over 90 minutes but we found two seats at the bar and ordered some drinks. The hostess said that the bar and patio seating was first come first serve so if we found a booth there we could help ourselves. Which we did, so we did!...
We started our with the Fire-Roasted Jerk Shrimp appetizer. Fairly large sized shrimp in a garlic and thyme broth (also jerk spices that had quite a kick). The shrimp were a smidge overdone but the broth more than made up for it. They give you a toasty loaf of Cuban bread to tear up and dunk in the broth. And I could have easily eaten the entire loaf myself.
For the main course I got the Jerk Grilled Chicken Breast in a black bean sauce. It came with cinnamon mashed sweet potatoes, fried plantains and (I believe) broccoli. There were two large sized Chicken Breasts (that my husband happily helped me finish) that were very moist and seasoned nicely with a bit of heat. The black bean sauce was a nice addition for swirling your chicken in. My husband got the Grilled Mahi Mahi that was "jerk painted"... This was the only minor disappointment. We were expecting a true jerk flavor and it was essentially "jerk flavored" bbq sauce. It tasted ok, but not what he was expecting.
Dessert was Key Lime Pie. I have only recently discovered Key Lime Pie and am sorta hooked on it right now. This one was very good and very unique (at least I think so in my short time of experiences). This one had a brown sugar crust and a sweet meringue topping. Perfectly tart-sweet and I really enjoyed the meringue. ( I have only had whipped cream before this).
Overall I would definitely recommend Bahama Breeze... Especially when it is an on the fly post-Trader Joe trip.
