Tropical Twist Chicken, succulent Apple Mint BBQ Pork Chops, a perfectly stir-fried Vegetarian Charm and the 'Fisherman Paradise' - freshly grilled fillet of snapper topped with juicy grilled shrimps and finished with a signature coconut white wine garlic sauce which was served as the main course Persons were given an option of Creamed Potato, Spicy Polenta Squares and Coconut Rice. As the evening simmered down to the sweetest bits, guests geared up for dessert, which featured a delicious Rum Truffle, mouthwatering Creme Brulee and tantalising Chocolate Mousse.
