“A Local Treasure Buried Near West End of St. Croix”
Vila Morales, a family owned and operated Caribbean eatery ;ocated near the West End of the Island of St. Croix, has been a weekend refuge for my family and me for decades. They have been in business for well over fifty years; there is also a guest house attached with very nice, cozy rooms as well. They offer classic local Caribe style menu selection which hardly vary from week to week. The menu, written on a small white board which makes its way to your table courtesy of one of the friendly, efficient and mostly family wait staff, is small enough for habitues to have it well memorized. One can choose from beef or goat stew, a variety of fish/seafood dishes, chicken, a variety of pates (island style pasties), and other traditional Caribe plated. Any and everything on offer is well prepared and delicious, and the variety of side dishes--no less palatable--makes for an available variety that keeps the entire menu fresh and vibrant. Try the Fungi, which is not a mushroom dish but a dish of steamed finely gound corn meal and an old-time staple. It is a natural accompaniment to seafood.They offer one of the two best potato salads on the island, by the by...and the value for money is outstanding. Also, ask JT to make you one of his Mojitos--the best, I feel, in the Northern Hemisphere! Villa Morales opens at 10:30 AM ONLY ON Thursdays, Friday and Saturdays; they remain open "until". They also offer catering.
