Then on Saturday evening, the three of us had dinner at Bacalao. It was out first time eating there and we would definitely recommend it, especially for visitors to the province. Bacalao, or variations of the word, means “salt cod” in various Mediterranean languages and refers to a significant part of Newfoundland’s history where people from many countries fished in Newfoundland’s waters and salted fish on the shores.
Bacalao's food is based on traditional and local cuisine, but with a modern twist. We all partook in amuse-bouches, tasty appetizers and main dishes which included the Jigg’s Dinner Cabbage Roll, Bacalao and Pork Belly, as well as dishes made from Rabbit, Moose, and Lamb. The dessert menu also looked yummy but we didn’t have any room after all of the other delicious food. However, they did offer local spirits so Elizabeth tried the Bakeapple Mojito and thoroughly enjoyed it.
