At Potter’s Cay, a sliver of land between Nassau and Paradise Island in the Bahamas, you’ll find the freshest conch and fish anywhere in the New Providence Island area. This cay is a favorite of the locals, with several shacks “scorching” (cooking the conch with lots of chiles) and “cracking” (batter-frying) conch straight from the boats. Both of these native dishes are superhot, demanding a cool liquid to wash them down. Along with Kalik, the local beer, this “tea” is a favorite.
