One of the most popular dishes is the Mofongo that is made with Island style meat or shrimp and stuffed with plantains, served with crisp green salad. The Grilled Whole Snapper is another fan favorite that is seasoned with island spices and served with black mushroom rice and plantains. The Red Chili-Honey Glazed Salmon is a great example of Caribbean and Asian flavors being fused together. The fish is served with black bean sauce, jalapeno crema, and your choice of rice or potatoes. The desserts are all homemade as well often using fresh fruits to create the delicate and delicious plates. The Guava Cheesecake is a must-try!
