Frozen Pina Coladas at Mr X’s Shiggidy Shack, St KittsMarch 19, 2007
The name alone should entice you into this lively restaurant and bar in Frigate Bay, St Kitts. Mr Rice is watching the Cricket World Cup with his camera, and he insisted that I join him. And big thanks to my boss, who let me off work at a week’s notice – thanks Louise!
St Kitts is really so beautiful, mountainy and hot. The beaches are sandy, the sea is blue and it is laid back, man! On my first day here our hangovers allowed us to amble down the road from the Sugar Bay Club just after midday for a refreshing drink and a filling brunch. Ok, so it’s not fresh Mango Daiquiries at the Oberoi, but a frozen cocktail really hits the spot when you are hungover and hot. Then fill up with some jerk chicken or spare ribs and look at Caribbean Sea as the Pina Colada kicks in. Finish with a frozen Mango Daiquiri and soak up the atmosphere.
Mr X’s Shiggidy Shack comes to life at night, with reggae to blast your ear drums, lots of people partying and lashings of tasty rum. In the evening all the meals come with rice and corn, and you can push the boat out with a very reasonably priced lobster.
