Already, they are getting glowing reviews…

My husband and I used Tropical Treats ice cream in lieu of a traditional wedding cake and it couldn’t have been a better experience! Kyle was incredible in working with us to pick the flavors we wanted, and helped us to create a fun post-dinner experience that captured the Caribbean vibe that we wanted to achieve. On top of a high quality product, Kyle’s professionalism was the biggest seller for us, and we couldn’t have been happier. For couples getting married on the island, I cannot recommend Tropical Treats enough!
— Shannon Kircher, Frangipani Beach Resort

When planning my destination wedding on a secluded Caribbean island, I thought I would have limited options when it came to unique touches. I was thrilled that Tropical Treats proved me wrong. Their delicious homemade ice cream and charming cart was the hit of the evening. After a night of dancing everyone wanted to cool off and it doesn’t get any better than Kyle’s ice cream and sorbet.

Tastes of Tokyo Bay With New Chef Joe Richardson

CuisinArt’s Tokyo Bay recently welcomed their new sushi chef, Joe Richardson.

Formerly of Sushi Samba and BarMASA in Las Vegas, we were eager to see what Chef Joe had in store and started off the weekend with a visit to “Mom’s favorite,” Tokyo Bay.

The evening began with spicy, wok-tossed, warm edamame beans, topped with garlic flakes and a bottle of hot sake.

The combination sure heats up your palate!

You will still find Tokyo Bay’s very best dishes on the menu, including the rock shrimp tempura, coated in a tangy sauce, topped with finely-chopped scallions and cilantro.

What’s different with Chef Joe leading the kitchen?

Everything is even better than before, if you can imagine that!

The Duck Duck Goose Gyoza, for instance, was even finer than I had remembered. The gyoza skin itself (the hardest part to get right) was crunchy-crisp on the bottom and warmly-steamed through the top. The flavors inside? Savory with a touch of sweet.

While we stuck to our favorites throughout the evening, a new dish caught our eye as a must-try…

tuna sushi with foie gras and eel sauce, topped with gold flakes

Tuna sushi with foie gras, bathed in an eel sauce. Garnished with gold flakes, it is a glamorous dish, and it tastes as good as it looks. Rich and decadent, with a smokey hint.

Then, it was time for the true test!…

The sushi and sashimi.

First? A few slices of salmon sashimi. Generously cut, they simply melt in your mouth.

The sushi sampler, including, hamachi, tuna, yellowtail and salmon, were equally excellent and left us with one thought…

Chef Joe is a true sushi master.

With a few classic rolls to end the evening, including an improved California roll (thicker and with more flavorful crab compared to before)…

… and, of course, the sweet ending, chocolate sushi.

Tokyo Bay has done it again! With Chef Joe, Tokyo Bay remains the #1 restaurant on Anguilla for authentic Japanese dining.

Weekends at Le Bar

In good Friday fashion, we paid Didier & Veronique a pre-weekend visit yesterday afternoon (is there a better way to begin a weekend?)…

le bar on the beach

Down on Sandy Ground beach, the sun shines something special over Road Bay in the mid-afternoon, lighting up the still and peaceful sea.

A crisp glass of rose pairs perfectly with the sights of the sea and the French ambiance.

And then?…

“Le Veriunic” burger, the island’s very best, hand-made and infused with special Herbes de Provence. No matter how many times we ask, “What’s your secret, Veronique?” she never tells 😉

Equally outstanding is her lobster salad, prepared with homemade mayonnaise…
