Au Regal St. Barth: Authentic French Lunch

Today’s lunch was at the well-known Corossol restaurant Au Regal. With its colorful exterior, painted in Caribbean yellows, it looks like a house and inside, in the unpretentious interior seems like a sports bar since almost all the customers are following the soccer games on the TV. The food is a combination of French and creole. While the green salad was ordinary, the main dishes were great. Jim had the Octopus Fricassee, in a mild red sauce served with rice and legumes. Dan ordered the langouste or lobster, which has a piquant garlic and parsley butter sauce on top. Like the octopus, it was very tender. For desserts there are only ice creams, but they are served like a parfait in a large glass with plenty of Chantilly whipped cream. Jim had coconut ice cream with a chocolate sauce while Dan’s rum raisin was drenched in the familiar and wonderful vanilla rum. For an ethnic and unique lunch on St. Barth Au Regal is a great choice.-Dan (pictured with the heavily rum-infused delicious dessert)
