(Fairfax,Va., United States)
We've bounced all around the Caribbean over the last 20 years. We were always searching for, and sometimes finding, however briefly, the quietest and most relaxing island. Being foodies, some islands, while peaceful and welcoming, had horrible food and sub par purveyors.
Then we discovered Anguilla. The first visit convinced us easily to return again and again.
Well, on to my my best food tip. I hope other visitors find it to be a good one!
If you want to grill lobster at your own place, go see Pamela at Bartletts, a gift shop at the circle that leads to "SANDY GROUND." With a day's notice she can usually obtain any size lobster that you want for around $8/lb. That is at least a third of the cost in a restaurant.
She also fixes some of the best rum drinks we've ever had in the middle of the day. Definitely try her rum punch, she's very proud of it. And rightly so!
Nori, I'm sure your Dad won't be disappointed at her rum punch!
P.S. I'll add one more quick review:
The newly opened (2007) VAYA is a real treat. The young American couple (she's a CIA chef) have established a welcoming, sophisticated venue for her delicious offerings. It blows away some of the old established restaurants. It was so good that we went back a second time. Even a power outage (not unusual in the islands) could not dampen the "bon homie" or effect of the service or food. A real gem!
