Some of your favorite dishes are…The stars of our cuisine vary almost daily, but today I could mention our Indian Dal with vegetables and coconut, or the fabulous fresh red snapper, Dorado, which is tenderly cooked and savory spiced, then embedded in asparagus and organic baby potatoes. Another favorite is the King Shrimp in a delicious garlic and butter sauce accompanied with spinach puree and roasted tomatoes. I also love the Vegan Lasagna made with braised vegetables like zucchinis, aubergine, red and green peppers, tomatoes, oregano, parsley, and garlic, and with Indian nuts butter. For dessert I love the Chocolate Nuts Brownie & the sugar free Mousse au Chocolat.
