stix / providenciales

a bunch of our friends were raving about stix, so we decided to check it out last weekend. it’s the new pop up restaurant and bar, right on the beach, by grace bay club, it opened 6 weeks ago, and all food is served on sticks.

what i most liked about it is that you actually have your feet on the sand, so it’s perfect if you like going for walks on the beach (like i do!!!) and stop by stix for a casual lunch with mojitos or an afternoon drink!

also, it gives such a good ambiance to the beach, if you know what i mean – sea, sand, sun and good food? yes, please! this is why i love living in provo. we tried a little bit of almost everything, i was most curious about the lion fish skewer, since it’s considered a plague in the caribbean sea, we never see it in restaurant menus, and yet it is delicious!

the jerk roasted corn on the cobb is apparently a best seller, and flavours  that are totally unexpected. if you try this one, i guarantee you’re going back for more!

stix is planned to be open until july, it opens daily from 11am until sunset, for more info, contact grace bay club on 649 946 5050.

ps – other food spots in turks and caicos.

Edit – stix is now located at the west bay club resort, and we still love going for a casual meal with our feet in the sand :)

bugaloo’s / providenciales

i love how they have rearranged this place, where most people didn’t even know there was such a beautiful site. we come to five cays once in a while, for the banana bread at liz bakery or the lobsters at provo seafood, and we like it because it is so un-touristic.

we’ve been to bugaloo’s a couple of times, first when it opened last year, and then again last week. they keep turtles and bunnies, so kids always have a good time looking around.

conch is their speciality, but last time we tried the cracked lobster and i tell you, it is so, so good. i think the restaurant has been busier than they thought it would, so service can be slow, just make sure you are not in a hurry when coming here. i like it that you meet locals, residents and tourists all in one place too.
