Location: Where ever my motor home is parked - currently Texas!
Last time on St Martin our tour stopped in Marigot before heading out the airport beach (way fun), while everyone else was busy buying trinkets I stopped at one of the little restaurants and picked up some oxtails for lunch on the beach!! So good!!! Everyone else had to suffer through their tourist food while we dined like the locals!
Rum cake in the Caymans, also Patties made there. Patties are not fried...they are baked...have a curry meat/chicken filling and the crust is yellow from Tumeric....and they can be very spicy....My husband is Caymanian.....and I know the food well....Most of the food in the restaurants in just regular food...but if you can get some turtle steaks....for sure try them....as well as curried goat....or oxtails....
I had fish tacos at some little hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Acapulco that was recommended by our cab driver. "Eet ees verrry good. And I don't get anneeey keek back from dem...I eet there all dee time!" Fish tacos for me, steak fajitas for DH, homemade chips and salsa, four beers....all for the massive sum of $10.00.
Counting the days,
"If I take the wings of the dawn, if I dwell in the remotest part of the seas, even there Thy hand will lead me, and Thy right hand will lay hold of me."
I had a good experience at the quay-side cafe in Belize City with a dish of "Boil-up": a tomato sauce base with chunks of green and ripe plantain, cassava, yam, and sweet potato, a bit of pig's tail, a chunk of barracuda flesh, and some hard-boiled egg slices, all boiled together. It's also the national dish of Belize, sort of a regional adaptation of the British "boiled dinner" I think.
When we were at Playa del Carmen port we went to Xcaret. after you get past the main gate. start ahead is a little restaurant with no walls just thatched roof
me and my wife ordered about three or four main dishes a piece and tried all of them and shared what was left with some friend we meet on the ship.
But this one item stood out "it was like a burrito but instead of a tortilla is was thinly sliced beef rolled around goat cheese spinach onions and tomatoes.
my only thought when i tried this was "food of the gods" by the way i didn't share any except for one bite because my wife threatened me. but if you go there you have to try it, sorry don't know what it was called.
"Lady's" if a man says he'll fix something, he will fix it.
Quit nagging him every 6 months about it
