We were supposed to eat elsewhere this night, but the thing about Punta Gorda is that if a cook doesn't feel like cooking one night....well, he just doesn't. So when we arrived for our reservation at Earth Runnings, no one was there! Instead, Ian (from Hickatee Cottages) - ever resourceful - took us over to Asha's new restaurant over the ocean (which opened only four days prior).
We had the place to ourselves and settled into a cozy corner. The surroundings were basic but clean. Only one other table of guests arrived during our entire dinner.
First up - order the local beer! Belikin!
Everything was fresh and cooked to order by Asha, who also took our orders and brought our drinks. We relaxed over the ocean, watching the waves and clouds and enjoying our food and drink in the cool evening breeze. Because nothing was pre-made, our dinner experience took several hours. But we had no other other pressing plans, aside from relaxing.
