We hadn't eaten dinner at Wild Mangos, one of San Pedro's most popular restaurants, in quite awhile, only lunch.  It was time to ride our bikes to town and enjoy the delicious creations of well-known Chef Amy Knox once again.  Since we had reservations, we got a primo table!
We started by sharing a tasty black bean gordas appetizer.  Barry enjoyed a Pantyripper (coconut rum and pineapple juice), and I went with SanPedroScoop's favorite here -- Caipirinha (not on the menu, but delish and reasonably priced at $8 BZD).

For our entrees, I tried the Budin Azteca ("Layers of tortillas, beans, sauteed veggies, mole negro, cheese, and garlic white sauce (Mexican lasagna-ish), side salad with chili-raisin vinaigrette.") Both the Azteca and the salad were super flavorful and great to look at, too.  I just love creative, healthy food!

Barry went with the Conchita Pibil ("Mayan spiced shredded pork, rice, black beans, plantains, pickled onions, and corn tortillas").  He loved that it was served with an assortment of salsas, from hot to inferno level, just like in Mexico!

Love the color!
We've always had a soft spot in our hearts for Mangos' desserts, though we do miss the molten chocolate cake that used to be served hot in a coffee cup.  (Just putting in a plug for it's return!)  We decided to try two of the desserts we hadn't had before, and they were both absolutely wonderful choices -- and good together, too, since of course we shared.  

This Ultimate Flourless Chocolate Cake would whet any chocolate-lover's appetite.  Moist, rich, simple dark chocolatey perfection!
Every bit as good was this Mexican Margarita Cay Lime Cold Cake, described as a "local dessert made of a creamy lime filling, biscuit layers, tequila, with a guava sauce".  It was truly a thing of beauty, and we loved it's tart creaminess.

These desserts didn't last long!
The perfect way to end a perfect meal is a ride back home on our bikes with our headlamps.  It's so much fun to ride under the stars with a cool breeze and less traffic than during the day.  It's one of our very favorite things to do here on Ambergris Caye.

Hi Wes -- it was great. We paid $200 BZ ($100 US) for everything -- drinks (6 total!), desserts, and tip. Well worth it for what we got. :)
