Monday, November 5th
Is it going to be a Mullet kind of day? I think so. But breakfast must come first!
Zee Best. Eggs Benedict and Huevos Rancheros. Could eat this every day. Theirs is my favorite on the island.
Normally Rosie’s on Mullet has not been cooking on a Monday, but there were cruise ships in so the grill was going….YES!
Settled into beach chairs to watch the cruisers floating in the water on their noodles.
Rosie makes awesome punches….back in the days of the old resort these were called Mullet Bay Welcomes.
Grilled chicken with mango salad. I’m hungry posting these!
Rosies’s Famous Ribs
Fall in the Caribbean / Mullet Bay – shall we rake?
I had the great pleasure of meeting Pat in person. We joined her for drinks at El Zafiro as it was her arrival day and our last night. There may or may not have been a few incriminating stories shared, and a great one regarding a red corvette….lol She and her husband were so much fun, that I wish we had more time. But alas, we had dinner reservations to get to.
We had saved our big meal $plurge for our last night, which was also to be my Birthday dinner.
A friend helped with getting us a reservation for Sale e Pepe
that night, as I had called too late and they were already quite full. THANK YOU!!!!! It was the most amazing meal of our trip. I cannot say enough good things about Sale e Pepe.
Upon arrival we were greeted immediately, and a table had been reserved with a sign and my name on it in the front by the railing. We were not even settled in yet when two complimentary glasses of prosecco arrived at the table. Great start.
Chef Davide’ has a wonderful restaurant in Sale e Pepe. Our experience is that the staff are well trained and attentive. In fact, we recognized an outstanding server who also works at Emilio’s where we had lunch earlier in our trip. They are doing so well in fact, that they will be opening a second and larger restaurant across the street close to the gas station and on the lagoon.
The bread comes with the most delicious and spicy sauce (which I only realized today could be purchased! I would’ve brought some home) They warn you about the heat, and it certainly has a kick! Hurts so good!
Starters were baby calamari steam alla Siciliana and beef carpaccio
Entrées were shrimp risotto and gnocchi.
After our plates were cleared, we were presented with limoncello shooters. They know how to make me happy.
All of a sudden, the lights go out. I’m thinking, “there goes GEBE again!” Then everyone is singing….”Happy Birthday!” Oh my goodness, they were coming to my table. Funny thing though, they put it down in front of my husband….lol….I just went with it
Delicious panna cotta.
What to have for dessert? A Gambino Tifeo Etna Rosato please. (Confession: Their risotto's are so to-die-for and orgasmic that we got an order of mushroom risotto to go! lol)
By the end of the experience I was a very happy camper.
