Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes?

Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes? - 09/26/05 11:56 PM

When I first started Lagniappe Provisioning we used to deliver ready to heat, ready to eat meals along with groceries and such and I would like to start the service again. This time I thought that instead of just using one supplier I would offer meals from a cross section of SP restaurants and that's where you come in...

I would love to hear from all of the boarders out there what dishes from SP restaurants that they'd most like to see waiting for them in their rooms when they arrived. Even if having your room provisioned is not your thing I'd still love to hear your suggestions and I'm sure new visitors would like to hear about some of the dishes and restaurants out there.

The only thing to keep in mind is that they need to be easily transportable (no messy sauces) and that they would reheat well if it was a hot dish.

Cheers,

Simon...

P.S. BC's BBQ will be on the list.

What a fun idea!

Arrive, check into your room, open a Belikin and start with the roasted Garlic, olives and papas fritas from Casa Picasso. Just enough energy to get you through the unpacking stage!

The lamb kababs at Ali Baba's - and the whole chickens.

Almost anything from Jade Garden - we reheated leftovers twice and they were great!

Pho Tai-Vietnamese Soup from Blue Water Grill lunch menu. The Maya Mar grilled fish from caliente's dinner menu....you could put that corn sauce on an old flip flop and it would be good! Sushi from Tuesday's Blue Water Grill and Estel's Fry Jacks. The best on AC! Now I'm REALLY hungry! cool

Any of the pasta dishes from Casa Picasso. I type this as I sit here and wait for my pizza to be delivered. I'm starved. Jean

Pepperoni's Pizza is a great place! Just ask Dave to do a half bake. Then you can finish it up in the oven at your leisure. If you don't have an oven, the full bake nukes up quite well.

The Coconut Curry Shrimp or Chicken from Caliente's, Ruby's Chicken Johnny cakes and Ali Baba's Pita and Hummus! YUM!

Re: Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes? - 09/27/05 02:27 AM

Good idea on the pizza, wanted to do them but wasn't sure how to make it work. Casa Picasso, Blue Water, Ali Baba's and Caliente will be contacted for sure.

Jamaic'n me crazy shrimp from the Jerk Pit I. The whole snapper from the Reef, any style.
Posted By: SimonB

Re: Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes? - 09/27/05 06:13 PM

Pepperoni's is just across from Exotic Caye resort and just north of Coconuts.

These are great suggestions everyone, keep 'em coming!

Big bowl of Ceviche and chips - delish! Stewed seafood from Reef is fab too - maybe a bit messy though!
Posted By: playabees

Re: Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes? - 09/28/05 05:00 PM

Any of Jen's pastas from Casa Picasso would be fabulous in the room. Oh, and that fresh-baked bread...

Simon, why don't you ask her if she could do a family-size or couple-sized portion? That would be a wonderful romantic dinner under the stars with just a quick re-heat and a bottle of vino.

Re: Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes? - 09/28/05 05:30 PM

I did think about having all ready to serve orders for 2 but felt it would limit the market as most people I know prefer to order 2 different items just for the variety.

The jalapeno pasta at the Jerk pit was great and would reheat well.
Posted By: Beliglen

Re: Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes? - 09/28/05 10:57 PM

Anything from Elvi's, Falafel or roast chicken and Hummus from Ali Baba's, Pauly's meat lovers pizza, Fried rice from Jade Garden.Breakfast burritos at Monkey Bites, Breakfast at Estel's. These are some of my most favorites. Nothing from Fido's; "1 star food at 5 star prices".

Re: Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes? - 10/04/05 06:23 PM

Simon,
This is making me so hungry. Can you deliver to the US? Please?
I think anything from Picasso's-- the pasta is great. Too bad you can't do the desserts, (well, you could do a few of them, I think.)

Re: Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes? - 10/04/05 06:59 PM

have you tried FIDO's new sushi place upstairs? They have great sushi.

Re: Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes? - 10/04/05 07:46 PM

Is it open again? It was closed for a while there.
Posted By: windyw

Re: Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes? - 10/14/05 10:46 PM

Must haves for me: egg rolls at Jade Garden, anything from Papi's and drumroll please: ginger rum shrimp from Caliente, simply the best.
There are lots of good places to eat but, in my opinion, these are the best!!

Re: Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes? - 10/14/05 10:52 PM

Mickey's Burritos are a must.
Posted By: SimonB

Re: Favourite SP Restaurant Dishes? - 10/15/05 06:20 PM

Only problem with Mickey's Burrito's is that, by the time they were delivered, they might be a bit soggy and they're only available on Wednesdays. Otherwise they'd be at the top of the list.

This thread is also an awesome resource... there is no way now that we are going to purchase the meal plan at the resort... we will go and eat in town!
Looking forward to our trip in 06 while I sit here eating my froz. pizza in MO where it's getting quite chilly!
Look forward to reading more on these boards!
