Key West's is known for its shrimp and crab and Pincher is one of the best places in town to get a taste. Housed in a classic wooden cottage on the main street in Key West, Pincher has a beautiful terrace where you can sit out and watch the hectic bustle of Duval Street. The shrimp are tasty, the crabs huge, and the grilled fish is fresh. Average prices.
In the culinary world, the word "Caribbean" means conch, a succulent and tasty clam-like creature found throughout the entire Caribbean. It can be prepared in salads, in soups and especially in fritters. To get an idea of the shellfish's popularity, Key West once called itself the Conch Republic and the island natives still refer to themselves as "conch". So, how could I not visit a place that prides itself on selling the best conch fritters in the world: the Conch Shack. It's a Key West institution and when I arrived at noon there was already a crowd devouring their famous conch salads and conch fritters. The fritters weren't the best thing I'd ever eaten, but I'd definitely recommend trying them.
