Walking into the restaurant we saw small beach signs foreshadowing our experiences. Our waiter, Jason was amazing. After fun conversations with him we found out that he had the choice whether to sit at home or on the beach and he chose to work, to serve and to connect with his customers. I admire his attitude! We need more minds like his. He was awesome. We first ordered the brussels sprouts appetizer. They were the best we have ever tasted. They had some kind of yummy Thai chili paste on them and were so tender and moist. We had a hard time sharing the bowl. I think we could have each had our own. We talked and sipped water and I went and took more photos. If Jason saw me stalling for time, he wasn’t mistaken. I was drinking up every bit of sunshine, laughter, humidity and ambience that I could contain in my sensitive heart. It was really hard to decide what to eat as I knew from the sprouts that the food was amazing. I decided on the fish special and my hubby went with the Thai peanut wings. They were both amazing and neither of us wanted to share our dish with the other. It was truly a feast for all senses.
As the sun was setting, they lifted the screen that was shading our eyes to reveal the big huge amazing ocean before us. I love the waves especially because the breathing of the world by it’s oceans calms me down and settles my overactive system. I get just as excited as I get nervous and the sound of the ocean is like a hot towel over my senses. The sunset was as amazing as the food. It was so fleeting, so magical, so inspired and I was able to sit and enjoy it in this magical place with no thought of doing anything else. Then the dessert menu came.
I had been waiting all week to find a place that had flourless chocolate lava cake. I hadn’t found any yet. There have only been a hand full of times that a place has satisfied by desire for this dessert. Maui about 10 years ago was one of those times. I told Jason of my dilemma and he said, ” OH, let me get you the cream brulee then,” haha He didn’t want me to be disappointed. I went with the Choco lava cake as by the taste of the other food I knew it could not fail. It did not. I was so engaged in it, that I didn’t even bother taking a photo of it and because we shared it, I didn’t want to not get my turn at my taste. I was using my fingers to scoop the bowl and wanted so desperately to ask for another. If I had it to do over again, I would not share but order me two of them. Success!!
