We decided to celebrate Valentine’s at a local favorite, the Lucky Lobster.
It is an open-air place that is run by a couple from Maryland, believe it or not! They hail from St. Mary’s County (around Solomon’s Island) and moved to Belize about 3 years ago to open a restaurant. They chose Hopkins because it was so friendly.
We were super lucky because Valentine’s night also coincided with the last day of lobster season – so the Lucky Lobster went all out with a 5 course menu – 4 of them featuring lobster!
- Lobster Tart
- Lobster Bisque (accompanied by heart shaped bread)
- Lobster Salad
- Lobster Mashed Potatoes
- And Finally – grilled lobster tail with drawn butter.
It was unbelievable!
The only thing that could top all that was the 5th course – chocolate mousse made from locally grown organic cacao. Wow. (And all this for $80 BZ per person – $40 US!)
Our fabulous meal was accompanied by a jazz pianist – who happens to be a retired family doctor from Maine who lives down here now (we learned this from his wife – the lady in the red dress below). What a wonderful community!
We stared dreamily into each other eyes and declared our love all over again – although it could have been the lobster talking! : )
