MYMOOSIE: conch locally!
Hi mymoosie!
Of all places, Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant chain now has conch on their menu! i know you're always looking for it. May not be like being at the islands, but it might help! there's one in Woodbridge, one in Fredericksburg. If you decided to come down and try it, you'd better meet me!

Hi blamona! OMG! I didn't even know there were these restaurants out here. Thanks for the heads up!! I will definitely have to get myself there. If I'm ever in Fredericksburg I'll be sure and let you know. I keep meaning to get down there to the cat shop. MmmmMMMmm conch... :-)

You'd love the cat shop, there's a real cat that "models" in the store front window!
Even Woodbridge I could meet you--you're talking 20 minutes from NoVa.

Hi guys,
There's a local seafood store that sells canned conch by us (west chester, pa). It's delicious. My DH makes a mean conch salad now! You could try your local seafood stores too-maybe they'll have it? Best conch salad ever though (that I've had) is in Long Island, Bahamas at Max's Conch Bar, if you're looking to find an authentic conch salad!

And if you go to Cheeseburger in Paradise, go soon and make sure to pick up a t-shirt! They’re doing a charity initiative right now - selling cool vintage surfer t-shirts that benefit VH1’s Save The Music, putting musical instruments in schools. You can get 'em at the restaurant or online – They’re also giving away an awesome Buffett themed Rock Band prize pack which is pretty sweet. Enjoy your conch and your tee!

I wish I could go this weekend, but I am still trying to recover from a bad cold. Cool t-shirts. I'm going to have to order one online.

kellybeaches - Your DH makes the conch salad from the canned conch? Is it the conch salad like ceviche style like in the islands? I'm going to have to look for that canned conch. Do you remember who makes it/what brand? I tried to have my Whole Foods order fresh conch for me once but wasn't that successful.

mymoosie, Yes, it's ceviche style like in the islands. His conch salad is pretty close to what you find in the islands. I'll check that store again when we go and get back to you w/the brand name. Maybe you can order it online?
