A very bold declaration maybe, but I’m not backing down!
One of the things that motivates me is food. Yes, I know that may sound bad, but my mood, temperament, attitude, it depends on whether I’ve had something to eat. So a major priority is to ensure that I’m never hungry, or worse ‘hangry’.
With that being said, being a traveling foodie is an amazing experience. There is always something to try, something to add to your list of things to attempt to make when you get home. My recent addition would be pineapple tart. Not just any pineapple tart, but pineapple tart from Gregory Town, Eleuthera (Bahamas).
While in Gregory Town recently, I was told that there was only one place I could find ‘The Best’ pineapple tart. ” Go up the road, take a left and next to the tree”. There I would find ‘Monica’s Dis N’ Dat’. On a previous visit to Eleuthera I was also given the exact same instructions; ‘go to Monica’s.’ As the name suggests you can get anything at Monica’s, you can get a little bit of dis’ and a little bit of dat.’ I was simply there for the tarts.
As a certified island girl, I have eaten a lot of tarts in my life. Coconut tart, apple tart, pineapple tart just to name a few. So when I tell you that Monica’s tarts were a life changer, believe me. It changed my life.
It was the best pineapple tart that I have ever tasted. Fresh pineapples stewed down to make a rich filling combined with a soft yet flaky tart. Ermagggad!
A major must!
