Desert at Coconut Restaurant

Here is a photo of the bananas flambe desert at Coconut Restaurant, with the flaming liquid caught in mid pour. On the table cloth you can see the shadow of the arm of the server, the container, and the flaming stream.

If you would think about dinner in a Costa Rican beach town, would filet mignon and bananas flambe come to mind as what you would expect?

In addition to an extensive menu of appetizers/salads, entrees and deserts, Coconut also offers a prix fixe special in which diners can choose any two courses from among about a dozen appetizers/salads, a dozen entrees, and about a half dozen deserts, for a total of $25 USD. As you saw yesterday, I chose the filet mignon for my entree, which came with vegetables and mashed potatoes, and bananas flambe for desert.

They had a chocolate desert which is what I normally would have chosen, but I figured the bananas flambe would make a better photo. Oh, the sacrifices one makes to be a Daily Photo blogger.

This week on Viva la Voyage, our travel photo site, showing photos of Papeete, Tahiti.

No one could appreciate your sacrifice more. I tip my hat to you.

That is quite a sacrifice to make, but as I can see, well worth it. This dessert makes a gorgeous photo.

Yummy. Looks so good. You can barely get a combo meal at McDonald's in the US anymore for that price!

Hey Dave, In response to your question on my site, I was north on 44th Street up by the McCune Mansion.

Your sad tale brought tears to my eyes! Hard to believe that people like yourself have to "rough" it like that these days.

But it seems you have somehow summoned the courage to carry on. Good for you! :-)

Thanks for the response re the capuchins. I didn't know that. You are a font of wisdom!
