Diverse dining in the Turks and Caicos Islands!
There’s three things about the Guanahani Restaurant at Bohio Dive Resort which put it at the top of the list for great places to dine on Grand Turk. The first is its location, the second is its chef, South African born Jorika Mhende, and the third is the effort she makes to create a culinary experience that is a delight and a surprise to find on such a laid back sleepy island. But there is nothing sleepy about Chef Jorika’s menu, she is famous for “making local food smart” and her menu provides fun and variety for all her guests every day of the week.
With that in mind, one of the most popular dining events at Bohio Dive Resort happens every Thursday evening and is suitably called “Foreign à Fare.”
Bohio Dive Resort might be located on Pillory Beach, Grand Turk, one of the most beautifully secluded and visually stunning islands in the Caribbean, but that doesn’t mean that every day the food our guests are offered needs to be traditional Caribbean fare and nothing more. Locals and tourists alike need a little spice in their culinary lives every now and then and the international Foreign à Fare night which we organise is not only popular, but an incredibly rich cultural experience.
What is Foreign à Fare night?
Every Thursday evening, Bohio Dive Resort serves food from a different country. Thanks to the culinary talents of our incredible chef, we’re able to serve guests with traditional dishes from countries located all over the world, from Australia to Zimbabwe and everything that falls in between. Every week is the celebration of tasty food from a different country — happening in our very own Grand Turk restaurant by the sea!
Anyone who loves to travel using their taste buds as their guide will immediately notice the fine quality of the dishes prepared in our restaurant, which is regularly frequented by our visiting guests as well as a loyal local crowd of people who live on Grand Turk. Foreign à Fare night, like all other nights in our restaurant, is made that little more special with an extensive wine list, a mouth-watering cocktail list, as well as coffees, cognacs and a wide range of fine Cuban cigars to draw your evening to the perfect close.
The unbeatable Executive Chef Jorika Mhende
South African chef, Jorika Mhende, has years of experience cooking for African hunting camps and safaris and was therefore not daunted by the challenges of a small island. Before working for Bohio Dive Resort, she also ran her own restaurant and catering business and she knows exactly what’s needed to make a small island restaurant one of the most popular places to dine, particularly when faced with the challenges of producing top quality dishes with limited island resources to hand. It’s incredible to think that even on the remote island of Grand Turk, Chef Jorika can produce traditional dishes from India, Spain, Greece, Italy and Thailand, week after week on our Foreign à Fare night – and that’s just focusing on the tip of the iceberg of her talents!
What about the rest of the week?
Foreign à Fare night might be one of the most quirky evenings offered on the island of Grand Turk, but Bohio Dive Resort has more to offer than just international dining on Thursday evenings. The all-day snacks will keep you happily satisfied until dinner, local fish and conch are always on the menu and Chef Jorika cooks up a heck of steak for those who are really hungry after a long dive. What’s more, if you’ve been out fishing and landed yourself a tasty catch, our restaurant team will be more than happy slap it onto the grill, Caribbean style, and turn it into a culinary delight. Saturday nights are BBQ and Band Night at Bohio; these nights are immensely popular with our guests and island locals. Chef Jorika shows off her African braai skills with delicious dishes cooked to order including steak, ribs, chops, fish, lobster and vegetarian options. We wish you every success in leaving Grand Turk with a smaller waistline!
