TORTOLA, BVI -- Visitors heading to the island of Anegada in the British Virgin Islands for the inaugural Anegada Lobster Festival on Saturday, 30 November and Sunday, 1 December are in for two days of mouthwatering spiny lobster bites, Caribbean dishes, entertainment and stunning beaches as organisers and restaurateurs put the finishing touches on this exciting culinary festivity.
Chefs at the eight participating restaurants, which include Cow Wreck Beach Bar, Big Bamboo, Anegada Beach Club, Flash of Beauty, Anegada Reef Hotel, Potter’s By the Sea, Lobster Trap, and Whistling Pine are each serving a unique array of lobster samplers for guests to savour as the holiday season gets ready to start. Each restaurant will offer a sampler lobster plate priced at $12 that includes three variations of the spiny crustacean with unique offerings such as lobster gazpacho, lobster fritters, grilled lobster, curried lobster, lobster in garlic butter sauce, lobster Rockefeller, lobster in barbecue sauce, lobster sliders, and more.
“The unique aspect of Anegada Lobster Festival is the journey to visit each participating restaurant along the island. Unlike most festivals that bottleneck in one location, this event encourages attendees to travel from one restaurant to the next while having the opportunity to experience stunning beaches in between, the island’s cultural attractions, the mom-and-pop boutiques, and the elements which make Anegada one of the most dynamic locations in the British Virgin Islands,” said Rhodni Skelton, film commissioner and events marketing manager at the BVI Tourist Board. “We are expecting many participants from the BVI, the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the United States and abroad. As we continue to broaden our culinary tourism product we welcome all to visit the stunning shores of Anegada for this exciting two-day festival.”
