Ministry of Crab’s pop-up event at our resort showcased some of the island’s epic fresh seafood in a 6-course menu. Still day dreaming about it so I’m sharing the torment with other seafood lovers - sequence from favourite to least liked : • signature pepper crabs made using hand crushed peppercorns, whole peppercorns and a pepper stock - worth mentioning that crabs were an OMG!!! size of 1.5 kg each
• clams with butter and soy in a simple Japanese preparation
• garlic-chilli lagoon prawn that was like eating a steak
• gratinated baked crab
• oyster sixers with an aged soy started 20 years ago and a homemade hot sauce
• king prawn bisque - it was the spices used that tasted like curry powder that I found overpowering
A cosy and intimate #tapasbar and restaurant just five minutes’ walk from the main shopping streets, and thanks to owners Juan and Jeanine it has a deserved reputation for excellent food and service. There are two menus, one seasonal, and one that changes every week or even daily, depending on what looks good and fresh at the market. Like a lot of places, it’s tapas at the bar, and full or half #raciones at the tables. Best to turn up early, as it gets very crowded, very quickly.
