Review of Turtle bay Nottingham
I am in my component where there is food involved! Back in April, I shared with you all my ideas on a recent visit to the popular The Diner. I actually really enjoyed sharing the post with you, and if it is acceptable with all of you, I think I might make sharing my thoughts on areas of foodie heaven a regular thing... well, as regular as my tummy and purse can manage! It is fine to change things up from attractiveness every once every so often and who does not enjoy food?
A couple of weeks back when I popped into Nottingham for Bobbi Brown 10 Measure Lesson and my Origins Touch of Youth Facial, I met up for lunch from the Narratives of Tori with the wonderful Tori. Well, I say lunch; we ended up indulging in three courses at . Turtle Bay is a Caribbean eatery that creates mouth watering authentic dishes in a restaurant which looks and feels like you could have just stepped into it from a Caribbean beach. Turtle Bay uses ingredients direct from the Caribbean islands as well as here in the United Kingdom, and the food is made to be rustic and full of flavour.
Turtle Bay Nottingham Menu
So what did I have? To start, I had the Jamaican Fried Lure (£2.25) which was fried squid and octopus deep fried in a crispy batter. It came served with a sweet chilly dip and a piece of fresh lemon, and must be one of the finest fried seafood dishes I've had in a long time. For chief, I opted for the Jerk Chicken Roti (£6) which was way taster than I anticipated. Hand-torn jerk chicken in a wrap with Caribbean coleslaw and chips, the best light lunch. The jerk chicken tasted amazing! To end I had a dessert I would not have ever found was a favourite of those fortunate enough to live in the Caribbean, the Rum & Raisin Bread Pudding (£4.85) which was actually so delicious that even writing about it is making me crave it. Very powerful, full of flavour but refreshing also.
Turtle Bay aims to capture the Caribbean island vibe by serving up special, genuine dishes in an environment inspired by the love of laid-back living.
Food Standards : One thing you should not worry about
Beverage and food are the heart and soul of Caribbean culture, which is why their menu reflects the diverse mix of the people you’ll find there. Serving the sort of food Islanders love at home, on the beach or in the street cafes. At Turtle Bay, you’ll also find a wide assortment of Isle drinks, to be loved in the beach bar or on the veranda - your mood takes you.
As for many of us, cooking can be a daunting task and if you are not a culinary god or goddess can seem laborious. Although Nottingham is not the gastronomic capital of the Uk, alongside the many high street restaurants there are a couple of jewels and Turtle Bay is one of them & the best in nottingham restaurants.
Turtle Bay aims to take you away from the Nottingham heavens that are gray and transport you to the laid-back shores of the Caribbean. The menu, which is bursting with authentic Caribbean dishes, is accompanied by a large cocktail list, great décor, and comfortable atmosphere. Even the music can have you singing along while you are tucking into Jerk ribs and sweet potato fries.
With appetizers costing £4.95 each, lunch and light bites for £6 and main courses from £9.50, it is excellent value for money. The meals targeted at lunchtime customers but available throughout the day are undoubtedly big enough for those of us. The Pull Jerked Bun with sweet potato chips simply cost £6 and was as big as some of the main courses.
The basic ingredient at Turtle Bay is Jerk BBQ many of the courses and sauce are cooked in the Jerk Pit, the Supreme Caribbean barbeque. However, if you do ’t fancy something from the Pit, there's an assortment of Caribbean curry pots and for the more daring amongst you, there is goat on the menu! All the ingredients are sourced both locally and from the Caribbean coasts and many of the dishes do have a spicy kick to them. Nonetheless, for people a little scared of spice, our server was able to point out the lighter dishes and suggested that leaving the extra jerk BBQ sauce on the side was the most suitable choice for spice intolerant guests.
