Welcome to part two my Key West adventure!
I forgot to share with you all my little neighbor I had on the flight here.
She was a bit of a yelper, but not too much of a bother. Overall, I would take her over a spider any day!!
On Wednesday my mom and I went out to Blue Heaven.
It’s a very well-known restaurant around here, and is super cute! The food here is phenomenal, and I’m sure you could order anything on the menu and be happy. My mom ordered the Snapper with angel hair pasta and cornbread, and I ordered the special: Wahoo fish with coconut rice, topped with asian slaw and cornbread.
Roosters and chickens are common to see just running around everywhere here on Key West…I had a few little pals run across my feet unexpectedly! My yelp definitely entertained the surrounding diners, but eventually I got used to the little buddies running around my feet.
For dessert at Blue Heaven we ordered their famous key lime pie that is topped with a huge, impressive mountain of meringue. It was delicious! I love meringue, but even for me it was a little much. I would kind of prefer whipped cream, but it was still a yummy pie.
We decided to pop into a cute little bakery/candy shop, Mattheessen’s. Such a cute little place!! Everything looked amazing, and they’re cookies are bigger than your face (They’re a 1/2 lb. each)! You can even order their goodies on-line..kind of dangerous that I just found this out
We knew we had to take a raincheck, so we went back and my mom and I both got stuff from there on Thursday. I ordered the key lime sorbet, and my mom got the peanut butter peanut butter cup ice cream. Both were ah-mazing.
My mom also ordered one of the ginormous chocolate chip cookies that we intended on eating today for the airport and plane ride back… yeah, that didn’t work out. We ended up silently destroying that bad boy in the hotel room when we got back.
On Thursday my mom and I decided to try renting and riding scooters.
Whew! I was preeettty scared at first, but once you get the hang of it, they are so darn fun. It really makes you want to own one of your own!! I can definitely picture myself owning own of these babies some day, especially if I live somewhere warm.
For dinner on Thursday, we went to Seven Fishes. It’s a cute little restaurant in the middle of a neighborhood that would be super easy to pass without knowing it’s there, but trust me, you do NOT want to miss this one! Lots of people around here know what Seven Fishes is and would rave about it to you just like I am about to. It’s a tiny little place that you really should call for a reservation for because it will fill up. They don’t open their doors till 6 PM, so you should be sure to get there on time or else you could lose your table (there are not many tables they can squeeze in there).
My mom ordered the grilled grouper with angel hair pasta and I ordered the grilled yellowtail snapper with rice. Both came with yummy sautéed veggies and their homemade mashed potato focaccia. Everything was delicious…clearly, by the way we cleaned our plates.
I think I could live the rest of my life eating that homemade mashed potato focaccia. Oh my gosh..yum. I need to figure out how to make that amazing bread. I’ll probably be dreaming about that entire meal for months!
The final installment of the Key West saga will be comin’ at ya on Monday, stay tuned!!
