Add me to the list of devotees of Paradise Moon. My son and daughter ate there three times during their week, and of course pushed us to go.
We were welcomed with big smiles and shown to a table for four (we were only two) with a view of the water and sunset.
The winds kept us cool, and the mossies were few and slow.
I began with a Captain's Plank cocktail which was delicious if a bit sweet, but that is my wife's favorite way. We sampled the walking sticks after hearing so much about them, and they are unique, and wonderful. They are about 6 to 8 inches long, crispy outside and rolled tight around cream cheese and bacon, maybe more inside, and served standing up in a glass of pepper sauce, sweet with a bite.
Despite their hot temperature to begin, you can't slow down. My wife dropped a small piece into the sauce and I tried to spear it before she could so I could have a little extra. That good!
Then, with the recommendation of our hostess, we had the pulled pork tacos and the dorado with poblano sauce.
The tacos were delicately fried until crispy outside, but the pork flavor shown through at each crunchy bite. This came with refritos (refried beans) and a lovely rice cooked with cinnamon, of all things. The beans were great, and I got them all since my better half doesn't like beans. Her fish came with a mild green pepper sauce (poblano pepper) on a grilled hefty slice of firm but tender fish, cooked perfectly and fork tender. I got all of her black beans, fortunately for me. She ate the tomato relish, and praised it highly.
Ah, dessert. Some were missing due to non arrival of containers from the ships that couldn't come in the hurricane, but the molten chocolate cake drenched in chocolate raspberry sauce (new to me) with a soft flowing liquid warm chocolate center encased in dense flourless dark chocolate cake was fantastic. Not to be too low in calories, it was delivered with a spoon of homemade chocolate ice cream. Since we were a bit full, I only ordered a small serving of just the chocolate ice cream, but what is considered small in Texas is huge on Bonaire.
I had no trouble hogging it all down.
Really, this was all wonderful food, and we will be back for more this week.
