Anguilla Beach Lovers

Issue #113, November 30, 2018

There is "clear." There is "crystal clear." And then there is "Anguilla clear"...

(Click here for a video of exactly what I mean. ;-))

One look at these turquoise waters proves that motto over...

And over again...

Anguilla sure is sparkling and buzzing with excitement! Blanchards, Mango's and the The Dune have all re-opened (The Dune is serving lunch on Sunday afternoons).

CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa has re-opened (full update coming soon) and Cap Juluca and Malliouhana are on track to re-open within the next couple of weeks. Yep, it is safe to say Anguilla is glowing!

What's new since last time?

NEW From YouTube

Buckle up for a tasty island tour! Louise and I dive into the mouthwatering world of Anguilla Johnny cakes.

Served piping hot, fried or baked, thin or doughy, crispy or flaky, these pillowy pieces of heaven just may be our favorite Anguilla food. From Nat's Palm Grove, to da'Vida's Bayside Grill, Ken's BBQ, Valley's, Roy's, B&D's and Tasty's, no two Johnny cakes are ever alike.

Click here to take the tasty tour and be sure to comment with your favorite spots for Johnny cakes!

30 Minutes of Shoal Bay Relaxation

This video's destination? Relaxation. Put on your headphones and get ready for 30 minutes of beach meditation, Shoal Bay-style!

Shoal Bay East is one of the top beaches in the Caribbean. It is protected by a large set of offshore reefs that create a calm, turquoise bay. The waters are some of the bluest you will ever see. That pure azure hue is beautifully complemented, of course, by Shoal Bay's powdery white sand.

NEW Anguilla Food

Mosaic Restaurant at CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa

NEW to CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa is the beautiful and blue, Mosaic Restaurant!

Formerly Café Med, Mosaic Restaurant is modern, chic and open air with a menu that boasts tons of variety and flair. A few of our favorite dishes?

Lobster Mac & Cheese

This dish is a show-stopper. Local rock lobster is mixed in with the oh-so rich and creamy mac & cheese. Baked to perfection, the blend of cheesy, seafoody flavors is mind-blowing. If there is any "new dish" to try in Anguilla, this is it!

Jumbo Shrimp & Crayfish Cocktail

Especially fresh, this dish features baby lettuce, avocado crema and Cruzan rum maryrose sauce. The avocado crema is a brilliant touch, enhancing the dish's light flavors.

Half & Half Flatbread

Mosaic's flatbread pizzas are thin with an addictive crunch and just enough "chew." The Half and Half, half garlic butter and half tomato sauce with basil, is highly recommended "to share" as a starter.

10oz Dry Aged Angus Prime Striploin

It is perhaps the juiciest, most buttery steak we have had yet. Chef serves it in a cauliflower-truffle puree which pairs perfectly with the sumptuous steak. It is served with parsnip fries and grilled king oyster mushroom.

Found at SHARKY'S: One of THE Best Dishes in Anguilla

Chef Lowell Hodge's chunky lobster cakes go down as one of THE all time best dishes in Anguilla! Chunky lobster, crispy cake, tomato tartar... no words, just 😍😍😍

Our personal favorite dish at Sharky's Restaurant, we had to ask Chef Lowell to show us the magic, to show us how he makes them!

A careful process, Chef Lowell does it all with passion and love! From preparing the cake's breadcrumbs from scratch, to carefully washing and preparing the thick chunks of lobster, to thickening the batter...

... it is no surprise these lobster cakes are addictively good! Lowell's secret ingredient is his passion :-)

Stay tuned for a full video on how to make Chef Lowell's famous Lobster cakes. Until then, don't miss out on Chef's lobster cakes at Sharky's when you are in Anguilla!
