Yesterday Rudy introduced me to the delights of the coconut chicken curry at La Esquina, which he had previously tagged as part of his 'Cosmpolitan Antigua' series. It has a mild nutty flavour, which made us think of Vietnamese or Malaysian cooking, but without the fieryness.
I have to say I've been a bit sceptical about some of the advertisements in Antigua for authentically far-flung cuisines ever since I tried the green curry at Cafe Flor a while ago. But this is pretty close to being the real deal, and not bad value at little over Q50.
I particularly like the way they serve the water there: in 1 litre carafes with mint and cucumber for flavour. The onion chutney which comes along with the bread is also delicious.
