    Favorite Meal

    I see a lot of people posting which restaurants they like but I want to take it one step further than that.

    What is your 1 or 2 favorite meals?

    I'll start with 2 I look forward to.

    Keshi Yena at Iguana Joes.

    Steak @ El Gaucho's (but only been there twice and ordered the special which was different both times and really delicious)

    What are your favorite meals? I'm looking forward to trying some new things but want to see what YOU look forward to.

    Interesting... Grouper stuffed with salmon.... what exactly is "safron" sauce? What would you say it is similiar to? Don't recall hearing that term before.

    this is my favorite at COOKS
    the saffron sauce is quite mild and delicious.
    the salmon stuffing (filling) is delicious and is very moist.

    nothing about this grouper dish is similar to anything i have ever had b4.
    i have had it 2x

    Grouper Roulade….$27.50
    Poached Grouper roulade, with Scottish salmon filling, fresh herbs, mixed vegetables,
    mashed potato, sesame parmesan crust, and an aphrodisiac Saffron sauce

    Carte Blanche: no menu here but LOVE everything the chef made for us!

    Passions: crab salad, watermelon salad, Get Together (Grilled Grouper Fillet with Creamy Hot Shrimps)

    Madame Janette's: Whole Deboned Yellowtail Snapper (Crispy tempura YellowTail Snapper, coconut rice, Asian vegetables, pineapple salsa)

    Bingo: Love their salads. Favorites are the Goat Cheese Salad and the Salad of the Sea

    Amadeus: Austrian Goulash Soup

    And if Wahoo is "catch of the day" anywhere I don't even have to look at the rest of the menu. I just order the Wahoo grilled with lemon and I am one very happy camper!

    palm beach, eagle beach, any happy hour
    I agree with Amy, the yellow tail snapper at MJ's is just perfect. I also love the Wahoo at Wacky Wahoos. The Ropa Vieja at Cuba's Cookin, along with a mojito, is a fun dinner too.

    Thanks to the many raves on this bb, I just made a reservation at Anna-Maria's for July when we are back. For all of those people who get frustrated with the slow responses to emails from the various island businesses, Chris at Anna-Maria's is wonderful to deal with and he answers emails very promptly.

    2. Fresh Fish at Zeerovers in Savaneta

    #1. Yemani has an entree salad w/roasted veges. I usually top it w/grilled mahi mahi. It comes w/3 wonderful sauces/dressings on the side. Never disappointing.

    #2. Bingos has two wonderful salads...Goat Cheese Salad and a Mushroom Salad.

    #3. Barricuda at Wacky Wahoo's.

    #4. Grilled chicken sandwiches from The Kitchen.

    1. Calamari appetizer @ Anna Maries
    2. Barracuda or Wahoo @ Wacky Wahoo's
    3. Get Together @ Passions
    4. Grouper special @ Marandi & chocolate trio dessert.

    For lunch, anything from The Kitchen or Mama's Food Truck (near La Cabana or Amsterdam)
    Aruba where the toughest question each day is "where to dine tonight".
