The Best Conch Fritters in the BVI

The best conch fritters in the BVI can be found at Corsairs.  When we told them that they all laughed and said "you know why we have the best conch fritters?  Because there’s conch in them!"  But it was more than that – they were spicy and full of conch.  I had to take a picture of Bill and Barbara’s plate because Frank and I had already polished ours off by the time I realized I wanted a picture of them!440133388_3f199511b2_2

Corsairs is located in Great Harbor, Jost Van Dyke and it’s run by Vinny – the same Vinny from Rocky Mountain Harley-Davidson.  Vinny spends November to July in the BVI and July to November in Colorado – what a life!  I asked him what it took to open a business in the BVI and he said if I applied now, my great-grandchildren might get the permit!

Everybody raved about their meal – not just the conch fritters.  Our six year old loved the place – Vinny gave him a gun to shoot pirates with and he used it to target lizards with.

Sorry for the quiet period

Sorry for the quiet period.  Our five month old ended up in the hospital – he’s doing fine now – but we didn’t do much cooking during that time.  We lived on hospital food (not too bad) and take out.  The best was Tim’s Thai

I thought about taking pictures of all of it for you but I didn’t have my camera on me, so you’ll have to take my word for it that the hospital food was better than expected, the thai food was great (we tried to order from them a second time), the pizza the first night was awesome (that tends to happen when you don’t get to eat for 12 hours) and the rest was ok but not particularly memorable.

Crab dinner in San Francisco

When we are in San Francisco Frank and I always have one dinner in our hotel room.  We go down to Fisherman’s Wharf, buy a lot of crab, some bread, clam chowder and a bottle of wine.  Then we go back to our hotel room, order some melted butter and wine glasses and have a feast.

A couple of tips:

  • If you order the melted butter from room service, check the quantity and the price.  One year we got a pound of melted butter for $17!
  • Make sure to order a cork screw when you order the wine glasses!
