Peaks Restaurant

January27

A business associate asked to meet me her for lunch so that she could get some traveling tips about Isla Mujeres. The opportunity was a perfect excuse to think about warm temperatures in the middle of winter. We decided to meet in the vicinity of her office at Peaks Restaurant at 106 Scurfield Blvd. in Whyte Ridge.

I suppose it was because we were both contemplating fitting into our bathing suits, that we ordered salads. She ordered the Greek Salad and me the Strawberry Spinach Salad. Each of us added a grilled and sliced chicken breast. Large pieces of garlic toast were perched on the rims of our salad plates. They had been saturated in butter (a good thing) and were crispy as well as delicious.

I admired my friend’s salad from across the table not knowing her quite well enough to request a taste. I noticed that her Greek salad included plenty of crumbled feta and kalamata olives. Uncharacteristic of a traditional recipe, the salad also included home-made croutons. As she asked the questions and I did all the talking, it took me longer than her to consume my huge lunch.

The delectable slices of strawberries, toasted almonds, shredded mozzarella and red onions were a summery taste as we chatted about golf carts, seafood restaurants and the best beach spots. The restaurant’s own poppy seed vinaigrette provided both acidity and sweetness and made the varied ingredients sparkle like the sea.

When a call was placed to the owner of the restaurant to check on the spelling of the unusual family name (Skrbic), he hinted that they originate from Eastern Europe so I was not surprised by the generous portions having travelled to the area in the past.
