By noon, the Cuzzin’s landmark bar was full of visitors and locals -standing room only. This made for a jolly beginning. We sipped delicious rum punches made with fresh citrus and island rum. The locals advised us what to order – conch and more conch.
We also had to try the local lobster. A large half of tender lobster meat on the shell was stuffed with fresh seafood and served with warm sweet butter. We all dug in and had some to spare. I am a Maine lobster lover, yet Cuzzin’s prepared one of the best lobsters I have ever tasted. My mouth waters when I picture that delectable lobster. Another adventurous food lover ordered stewed island style mutton, with a Jamaican twist.
I am on a quest to try the new, before the tried and true. However, I cannot wait for my next journey to St. Thomas. I will call Keezi and ask her to meet me for another memorable feast at Cuzzin’s.
