This past weekend, we headed to Bahama Breeze to check out some of their new menu changes. We were recently invited to check out their new late night happy hour as well as their rice bowls.
True, it wasn’t actually late night happy hour when we went… soooo… lets play pretend, ok?
Now, back to the good stuff.
Bahama Breeze is now offering a second happy hour Sunday through Thursday from 9pm to close. (Their typical happy hour is Monday – Friday from 4 – 6 pm)
Their happy hours include special drink prices like 14 oz beers for $2, 20 oz beers for $3 and bottles for $3. Plus they also offer special prices on wine, Specialty Drinks and spirits.
Know what else makes their happy hour special? They also offer 1/2 price appetizers as well…and it’s not a short list!
With that said, we started off with two Aruba Reds. These are an American Amber, Red Lager brewed exclusively for Bahama Breeze by Budweiser. I can definitely see myself enjoying some of these during a happy hour out on their patio.
We started off with a few apps. I’d already tried their coconut shrimp on a previous visit, so I decided to try their Skillet Simmered Jerk Chicken.
This was good, but not exactly what I expected. (I hate tail on shrimp… ) Let me tell you though, that innocent white bag? It held a beautifully warm, slightly crunchy yet soft loaf of the most amazing cuban bread. Seriously, sooo good.
We also ordered the Warm Goat Cheese and Flat Bread Crisps.
These were delicious! I mean, it’s goat cheese, how could I NOT like it, right?
When you run out of crisps, you can just cut up the pepper and eat it that way. (It was also good smeared on the cuban bread from the other app)
Next we each tried a different rice bowl. Adam ordered the Chipotle Beef.
I ordered the Carnitas. I looooove Chipotle hard, so these were right up my alley. I liked that they offer many flavor options, so it’s not just the traditional rice bowl w/ chicken, pico, guacamole, and sour cream.
There’s shrimp bowls, Asian flavored bowls, and even chicken curry. Plus, they use basmati rice or yellow rice depending on the dish. Definitely mixes things up a bit.
If you’re looking for a good happy hour place or even just a place for lunch (Bahama Breeze now offers 20 entrees under $10 at lunch which these rice bowls qualify) or dinner, I recommend Bahama Breeze. Their prices for happy hour were very affordable, and their new rice bowls offer many tasty options.
