Bermuda trades equal to the Dollar, not linked to the Sterling.

Ground beef, fresh, can go for $11 p/lb.

Buy frozen everything protein wise. Though, fresh seafood, and lamb is cheap and plentiful.

Are vegetable and seasoning prices at the same comparative levels as the beef or less expensive?

A lot of local gardening is done, and produce has come light years from what it was, but some of it gets pretty beat up in transit. . .it can be a little hit or miss. Restaurants get great/consistent product though, lol. Seasonings and such is same as here on the states really.
