|Saltfish Buljol with Bake and Poached Eggs - Speyside, Tobago|
Anyhoo, at least at breakfast, we could count on some local fare, well almost. For some odd reason, though we were a mere few feet from the ocean, they were totally out of seafood that wasn't preserved. No flying fish or Shark Bacon. Booo! They did thankfully have Saltfish Buljol and Smoked Herring. It is typically served in a heaping serving fried with Onions and Bell Peppers with a side of fried Bake. We ordered Eggs on the side. I asked about the Potatoes that were on the menu but ... ? they were out... of Potatoes. Really?
|Smoked Herring with Bake and Sunny Eggs - Speyside, Tobago|
Bake, oh the Bake. It is wonderful, if I didn't loathe deep frying at home, because of the mess and smell, I would make this everyday. It's a local TT bread that comes in small rounds the size of a small Pancake. If cooked properly, the middle is hollow but the outside is still bready but crispy. I had one in POS that was too oily and bready with no hollow. The Bakes at Blue Waters Inn were all done really well, to order. mmmmmm I will have to try to do Bakes when it gets a little cooler.
