Cajun spiced and char-grilled shrimp with a ginger soy glaze. Ripe plantain stuffed with ground pork, capers and herbs, deep-fried and served with a tomato salsa. Part of “Tapas for Two” $64 (Barbados dollar) Waterfront Cafe, Bridgetown, BARBADOS
Mmm, this was very good! The shrimp was surprisingly tender even with that amount of char on the outside. The fried pork balls were different, but very yummy. I don’t think I’ve even had something like it before. Both items were packed with flavor.
Looking down in the grave of Captain Thomas Henry Sealy, located at the cemetery at St. John’s Church. Our taxi driver tour guide told us that we wanted to be buried standing up and facing the sea so he could remain on the lookout for approaching enemy ships. What a diva, lol!
East Indian delicacy of potato and vegetables in a pastry parcel with a soy honey dipping sauce. Part of “Tapas for Two” $64 (Barbados dollar) Waterfront Cafe, Bridgetown, BARBADOS
I loved that these weren’t greasy at all. They stayed crispy on the outside, and the filling was piping hot. The soy honey sauce was also a great addition.
Boardwalk along The Wharf Road in downtown Bridgetown near the restaurant. I really liked this town. There was a lot to do and plenty of restaurants to choose from. There are plenty of taxis everywhere, but it’s also walker friendly.
Another ho-hum day at work. I had a great workout afterward, then swung by Dinosaurs for a banh mi sandwich before grabbing the J Muni back home. The prices were SO cheap there that I bought an extra sandwich to bring to lunch tomorrow. They were very tasty! Pics to come once I’m caught up, lol!
Shrimp and scallops with water chestnuts and scallions (4 pieces). Served with a ginger soy dipping sauce. $10 Wang’s in the Desert, Palm Springs CA
These pot stickers looked promising on the menu, but they were a little dry and dense. I really wasn’t all that impress with the food at Wang’s overall. Their happy hour is a lot more fun and a better value than their actual dinner.
Braised chicken in soy sauce, vinegar and garlic with fried plantains. $11.95 Patio Filipino, San Bruno CA
I loved this version of chicken adobo! It tasted rich and flavorful and I love the additional of the fried plantains. SO yummy! The chicken was super tender and you have to spoon all that delicious sauce over your rice. Noms!
