One morning on Isla to escape the latest deluge from the approach of Hurricane Ida, a friend and I popped into Poc Chuc. It was either that or be drenched! We'd just had breakfast at The Elements, but sometimes the diet (ha!) must be sacrificed in order to stay high and dry!
I've never had a real love relationship with Poc Chuc after some mediocre tostadas on a past trip, but I have to tell you, I ordered the fried banana as a little post breakfast snack and it was a culinary treat! Absolute yummmmm! My friend came up with a really funny line for a fried banana post, but it eludes me now. So just channel Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade. I can hear him say -- I'll have one of them French Fried Bananers!
I've always loved their sign! Is the pig a bean mosaic?
The counter's really colorful and cute!
And here's the culinary work of art! Mmmmmmmmmm! And yes, it really was that yellow!
