Talk food to me :) My husband and I were on Culebra last year and had a difficult time finding options. We frequented Mamacita's and Barbara Rosa's--as well as the kiosk by the ferry terminal that serves the octopus pies etc. But waited one night for 45 minutes at the Dinghy Dock (or dingy dock rather) and once seated were told they were out of nearly everything on the menu but veggie burgers. Which I love--but came out ice cold; there wasn't even cheese which we requested:) Needless to say--that's not on my top ten. But when we tried to get to a few other places: Dakity and Juanitas we found that reservations were made so far in advance (they were booked for two weekends straight) that we couldn't get in. I love Culebra but I still have a hard time understanding why a laid back island environ requires a Darwinian instinct to get to a place before the crowds descend. I'm aware of the list on the forum for food places--and was prompted to post this due to an earlier post today about Susie's kitchen--which I'm really glad to know about. Has anyone compiled a thorough list of what's open and around this year?
