*NEW* Shrimp and Avocado Ceviche – $8.99

Poached shrimp, marinated radish, blood orange sorbet

This interesting combination of ingredients works surprisingly well together! The tangy, pickled radish is a little soft but still crunchy. The poached shrimp has a good texture, if not a ton of flavor. It works really well with the mild sweetness of the blood orange sorbet.

TIP: If you get this dish, make sure to try all the ingredients together in a single bite. They blend to create a delicious flavor.

*NEW* Sweet Corn Johnny Cake – $6.99

Pulled jerk jackfruit, blood orange crema, avocado, yellow mole sauce

This dish was a pleasant surprise. The Johnny cake is dense with a good corn flavor. The jackfruit has a meaty texture with the taste of Caribbean spices. The salsa, avocado, and blood orange cream pull it all together nicely. This unique dish is a great vegetarian festival offering!

*NEW* Cape Guayaba – $6.00 for 9 oz., $13.00 for 12 oz. souvenir cup

New Amsterdam Vodka, guava and lime juice, agave nectar, fresh mint

Holy guava, Batman! This is a nice fruity drink with a strong guava flavor.

A hint of mint and lime gives it a nice zing. This is another decent festival choice!
