We got back a few days ago from our annual vacation in Mexico. This time around it was extra fun and special since our best friends with their children joined us. The trip was plan to celebrate mine and our friend’s birthday over there, and since his birthday was right on our arrival day we started the festivities right away.
We have stayed at Finest Playa Mujeres Resort, a high end, luxury all inclusive resort, with a beautiful private beach, loads of delicious and fancy restaurants, coffee and sweets café, sports bar and a nice martini bar right in the lobby.
The resort offers quiet a few dining options, starting from the delicious and with tons of options buffet that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner to more sophisticated restaurants. We have tried most of the restaurants and fell in love with Le Petit Plaisir – a French adults only restaurant. The lobster house was men’s favorite spot and the steak house as well, we dined at both several times. We didn’t get a chance to try the Tapas and Mexican seemed to please half of us only. The Asian restaurant was nice, offering fresh fish and intricate dishes and thats where we dined for our friend’s birthday.
Obviously we have started with champagne:
For his entrée my husband went with a fish theme ordering tuna steak, the birthday boy got some juicy beef and vegetables kebabs, while the women couldn’t resist and we both ordered the duck pad thai confetti, which I can describe the best and only way to eat pad thai. The noodles were soaked in a sweet duck confetti sauce with junks of tender duck meat.
Full and happy we found more room for dessert, but instead of ordering from the restaurant’s menu we went downstairs to check the buffet options. Its safe to say that we weren’t disappointed and continued to feast on pink marshmallows dipped in milk chocolate fondue and coconut flakes, the cutest and tiniest cream tarts with strawberry sauce, fresh melon ready to be dipped in chocolate fondue, shots with strawberry mascarpone cream and a delicious chocolate and vanilla cake.
This all delicious food was consumed on our first night at the resort, it definitely put as in a good mood and eager to try the other offered options that I will share with all of you in separate posts. Everything was so good, that it deserves it own shining moment.
