What's on your french fries?

OK, so I was in the Bahamas this week, and excited about trying new food. At one restaurant, I ordered their grouper and fries. When the food came, the waitress asked me, "Do you want mango ketchup with that?" Frankly, it sounded a bit weird, but knowing that I like mango chutney on Indian pappadums, I said, "Sure!"

Well, what came out was golden colored with specks, and pretty runny. I dipped a fry into a pool I'd created on my plate and popped it in my mouth. It was sweet and cinnamon tasting, like a dessert! Very odd.

Watch this space for a report on mango chutney that I bought at a Bahamian general store.
