El Varadero Cuban restaurant, Isla Mujeres
|This is Superman.|
Note: this is a different place than El Veradero de Oscar, about which I posted last year!
First, I present the amazing Torta Cubana at El Varadero. It was a towering, glistening, crunchy pile of awesomeness that cannot be described adequately.
The chicken fricassee was amazeballs.
It's on the menu under the Pork Chonks.
There's a reason Superman is known for his mojitos.
Who do we run into at El Varadero? None other than Chef Lolo of Lolo Lorena Supperclub.
That's Lolo on the right. She likes to party.
Spicy shrimp, recommended by Lolo, did not disappoint. Would love to be eating another pile of these right now.
Could it get more charming? Right on Makax Bay, a secret hidey sliver of sea protected by mangrove forest.
Derek and Debi with their vacation game faces on.
That's a big oven that makes delicious things come out of it.
Can't wait to sit by the bay and put the hurt on some more mojitos next January!
