( – On the western shore of Little Corn Island, Nicaribbean

Colores Exterior

How I heard of this place: On Little Corn Island one must only arrive by boat and walk the only paved path from the dock to bump into a number of eateries and beachfront bungalows. That is exactly how we happened upon this delicious nook.

Type of cuisine: Fresh fruit juices, plenty of egg-based breakfast options and a limited lunch/dinner menu with fresh seafood, chicken, burgers, quesadillas, pizza as well as a range of local dishes, including the island special Rundon, a coconut and seafood broth, which should be ordered in advance (or await patiently the one-hour preparation time).

Fresh Juices

Ambiance: The enclosed courtyard resembles one that may have been added onto a house (found at back), brightly painted and covered in case of storms.

Seating area

The blue plastic chairs accompany plastic-clothed tables in the colors of Christmas joy. We opted to enjoy the small, mini gazebo-huts offering shade on diners and tables, overlooking the sea just opposite the main path on the west side of the island.

What I ordered: Rondon, of course! And two, tall glasses of fresh guava juice.

What I loved: The fresh basil in the flavorful and abundant coconut milk broth.


Why I loved it: It was prepared from scratch with only the most local, seasonal and organic ingredients one can imagine.

Cost: Average (C$130 per large-sized bowl of Rodon, between C$90 and C$190 for other lunch/dinner entrees)
