Dear Steemit friends :
The Atlantis resort in Bahamas has surely drawn the attention of many travellers who seek their own answers to the mystery of the ancient lost city. After thousands of years submerged under the sea, curious explorers now have the chance to make their own pilgrimage to this Utopian relic.
Our adventures thus far have taken us to The Dig where partial ruins of the ancient city have now become the permanent home of a thriving marine ecosystem, buzzing with life.
Since the 19th century, historians have renewed their interest in origins of Atlantis, looking for clues as to where the advanced kingdom sank in just one day and one night. Whispers of the Greek island, Santorini remain a subtle yet plausible theory. My own adventures exploring Santorini and it's magical sea served only as a cathartic temporary release of my curiosity, ultimately leading my travels to Bahamas for further affirmation.
The Big Chair belonging to Poseidon, gave us a glimpse to where the mighty Olympian once sat as he ruled his Kingdom. Though indeed a God, Poseidon and the other Olympians walked among the realm of the mortals, ruling undetected as they presided over their areas of control.
Poseidon was of course, the Greek god of the sea. After defeating the Titans, the world was divided into three. Poseidon drew the Sea straw and hence forth became the protector of all waters as well as all those who depended on them for safe passage.
He wields a three-pronged spear also called a Trident allowing him to strike the ground producing an earthquake. For this reason, Poseidon was also known as "The Earth Shaker".
Known for being arrogant, moody, and always flaunting his masculinity, Poseidon no doubt commanded a God worthy appetite.
My expeditions as Miss. Delicious takes us deep into his place of banquet. Poseidon's Table, a place that delivers both the quantity and quality of food, only worthy of a powerful deity. Dining here is a privilege, one bestowed upon us by right of abode in the heart of Atlantis.
What food, fit for a God and his Godly appetite can we expect?
Join me in the feast and let's find out!
Just a minutes walk away from Poseidon's Big Chair. We see the marvellous entrance to Poseidon's Table. His Trident piercing through the name as a reminder of his unwieldy power.
Entering the main court, we begin to see a style of decor that mimics the unwavering motions of the sea. A wall with a myriad of bubble like holes echoing Poseidon's position as God of the Sea.
Enormous bottles frame the upper portion of the walls. Their size, a reminder of the unearthly size of the Gods.
Behind the wall, the food awaits. Section by section, row by row, food of all sorts await our picking. Let's go through and have a look.
Lots of different Cheeses and cured ham / meat.
Even more pre-prepared salads with Olives, Beans, Beetroot etc.
This is the Teppanyaki stir fry section where you can choose your own ingredients and the chef will stir fry it for you!
Seasoned Vegetables and Kimchi
Freshly roasted meat!
Sushi Bar. The Sushi bar was surprisingly varied. There was all sorts of sushi rolls, nigiri's and even sashimi's.
Pizza and make your own pizza
Hot Food section with various curry's, meat stews, vegetable stews etc.
Boiled Broccoli, Jamaican Rice, Mediterranean Rice
Crab Salad, Conch Salad, Shrimps Calamari Vinaigrette, Fish Cerviche
This looks like some sort of curry and Baked Pastry.
Meat lovers will love this section with Sausages, Grilled Chicken Breast, Grilled Steaks and Grilled Salmon.
The seafood section is perhaps my favourite, it has Pealed Shrimps, Smoked Salmon and Mussels.
Mediterranean foods have a very good representation.
Make your own Tortilla!
Bread lovers will have no problem finding one that suits their taste.
Perhaps the most comprehensive section of all, the cakes and desserts!
Ben & Jerry's has their own stand here! I of course obliged.
To celebrate a true banquet, a surprise mini Junkanoo sprung out of no where. All the restaurant staff and waiters started dancing and playing on the drums as they paraded around the eating area.
Check out the video below and see for yourself!
Poseidon's table is an eatery of epic proportions. There is very little chance that you will not find something you enjoy eating at this place. More likely, you will find it hard to choose what delights to eat and end up missing out on many delicious foods by the time you are full.
My visit entitled me to but a taste of the food from Poseidon's very ample table and has left me in awe of the food the Atlantians are able to enjoy.
I would recommend fasting an entire day before attempting to conquer this restaurant. Even then, you will likely be defeated by the onslaught of food. At least you will walk away with a personal victory! (And a very big belly!)
