Claudette’s Native Food (Nassau, Bahamas)

(Update: After 2015, I can’t find any new mentions of Claudette and her modified U-haul van on the internet, so I assume she’s closed. That stretch of waterfront still gets an interesting assortment of vendors, however.)

One of my online peeps told me of a good place to get tasty conch fritters, jerk chicken, and grilled crawfish. His direction were:

“From the boat dock, head west along the waterfront until you find the worst-looking food vendor. That’s the place.”

This is what I found: Claudette’s Native Food, in a converted U-haul (which, for the record, wasn’t the place my friend found, which was later found to be called McPhee’s Seafood).

However, the conch fritter we had from Claudette were extremely cheap ($1, plus I tipped another $1), and very, very good (much better than any of the fritters I had in Key West), with a very tasty and spicy sauce reminiscent of a remoulade.

So, three cheers for random food trucks!
