Our first breakfast on the island was….no big surprize-Rubens!
Not only was our hotel just up the street, the outside tables were accessible for K AND let’s face it: D and I had been dreaming about Ruben’s shrimp omelet since our last trip to the island.
We actually did spend some time reading Ruben’s menu, not because we couldn’t decide what to order but because we missed seeing Ruben on this visit and purusing his menu was like spending some time with him.
We ordered rounds of papaya and orange juices along with Ruben’s delicious coffee. We were happy to just BE back on the island and to get our bearing again.
Ruben’s efficient kitchen had our meals out in no time. Not only were the eggs tender and flavourful in the omelet but the shrimp (which I guess are seasoned and browned in butter), literally burst out of their wrappings. I like mine with a bit of the breakfast rice and do not even add a grain or salt or pepper because they are so perfectly seasoned.
K is an eggs benedict aficionado and she loved Ruben’s!
Kath’s quote: Charlie Harper: Hey, Alan. Can you taste my hollandaise sauce?
Alan Harper: You made hollandaise sauce?
Charlie Harper: You tell me.
Alan Harper: [Tastes sauce] You did not make hollandaise sauce.
Charlie Harper: Damn you, eggs Benedict.
