we were at st john, in the us virgin islands, last week and had a hodge-podge of meals. i was inspired by a restaurant that was a first for us on this most recent visit. sweet plantains is located in the tiny east end corner of st john, coral bay. i enjoyed an “erotic martini” (see their menu) and dan a frosty presidente. the evening we chose to dine featured latin foods. caribbean foods have many inspirations latin being one. to celebrate the trip and fabulous food here is a humble version of a latin soup but incorporating some organic, whole wheat sourdough bread and thus the papa al pomodoro!

this is my interpretation of what we enjoyed on St. John
