Key West, Florida is a small paradise with sun-drenched beaches and tropical sea breezes. It’s a lively, picturesque haven for cruise ships too. If you have a chance the venture out among the local shops, natives and guests alike can discover deliciously inventive cuisine and dishes that will satisfy all. It’s an island mecca for the sophisticated food critic, or adventurous culinary enthusiast.

Cuban Flare

A city only 94 miles from Cuba is bound to have an infusion of flavors. Most notably is the Cuba sandwich. It may have had humble beginnings as a typical lunch for Cuban workers in the early 1900’s but the use of ingredients makes it burst with flavor. Try one of these sandwiches with authentic Cuban bread. A spread of mustard and olive oil topped with pork, ham, Swiss cheese and pickles, makes for a mouth-watering meal.

Festival of Food

In late January, Key West has their annual food and wine festival. Many businesses let you sample in some great wine and distinctive eats. Or go all out with a VIP pass that includes seminar admission and a gift bag of goodies. It’s one of the best places to be to experience what this suave and sultry city has to offer in top cuisine choices. Four days of appetizing food and sandy beaches can be a welcome vacation.

What Are You Hungry For?

Visit Sloppy Joe’s Bar, and try a famous ‘Full Moon’ fish sandwich, batter dipped and deep fried. Or a classic Sloppy Joe sandwich with onions, peppers and savory spices. If you’re on the waterfront why not try A & B Lobster House or The Stoned Crab for some genuinely tasty seafood fare.

If you’re looking for budget friendly meals for the whole family then head to Garbo’s Grill located on Green street. Order a plate of pineapple chicken quesadillas and a refreshing root beer.

Go to Latitudes on Front street for a more romantic atmosphere. Share some conch fritters or crab stuffed scallops. These places have great people and excellent service. For Caribbean specialties visit The Flaming Buoy Filet Co. on Packer street. They serve a grilled Mahi with corn on the cob and mashed potatoes. No matter where you go there is a restaurant around the corner that may please even the hard to please of eaters. Whether you’re in the mood for Mexican, Italian, or Chinese there is a diverse variety of dining choices in Key West.
