To celebrate our one year anniversary, David and I went to find warmth and sunshine in the Florida Keys. We ate at some really wonderful local restaurants. Here are some of the wonderful dishes we had:
APPETIZER: Seared Yellow Fin Tuna with Wasabi Aioli
DAVID’S LUNCH: Grilled Hog Fish with veggies and rice.
MY LUNCH: Fried Mahi Mahi Basket, with fries and coleslaw. (I don’t really care for tartar sauce, but there’s was really fresh)
DESSERT: Key Lime Pie (This was the best we had on our whole trip!)
You can’t go into Margaritaville without having a Margarita!
SUPPER: David and I both got the same: Cheeseburger in Paradise (Not all that great to be honest. Very little flavor…)

If you ever go down to the Keys, look for some of these places and give them a try! 🙂
You’ll have to forgive some of the photography, but I don’t like making a scene with a camera in a restaurant.
