Celebrating Pineapple Day at Bahama Breeze

On Wednesday evening I celebrated Pineapple Day at Bahama Breeze in Troy.  They invited bloggers from all over the Metro Detroit area to come in and try one of their two specialty drinks and an appetizer.  I had a spectacular time with Becky from Week 99er

Our waiter was wonderful, he made sure we were well taken care of and was full of personality.  The decor is fun and festive, and the building design is based on sugar cane factories.  

Bahama Breeze offers a full menu with many Caribbean foods along side some more traditional selections.  They offer a children's menu and are family friendly.

We were invited to try one of two of their featured drinks, the Painkiller or the Goombay Smash.  I tried the Painkiller from the British Virgin Islands.  The drink blends Pusser's Dark Rum, cream of coconut, pineapple and orange juice and is finished tableside with freshly ground nutmeg. It was a great start to the evening.  

Becky tried the Goombay Smash, which was made famous by the Grandmotherly Miss Emily at her Blue Bee Bar.  The drink contains Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum and Myers's Original Dark Rum mixed with fresh orange and pineapple juice.  Yummy!!  

Since I am not a picky eater, I told the waiter to bring whatever appetizer he thought would be best.  Wow was I blown away when he brought me Tostones with Chicken.  This dish is a favorite in San Juan and consists of twice fried plantains topped with chicken, sweet peppers, mushrooms, melted cheese and tomato salsa. Think nachos with a twist.  

Overall, we had a great experience and we will surely be back again with our family.  Bahama Breeze has two Metro Detroit locations:
539 E. Big Beaver Rd 
Troy, MI 48083 


19600 Haggerty Rd 
Livonia, MI 48152
