I remember wandering around St. Croix many years ago while in the Marines. We were wandering around the streets looking for a place to eat and this woman called us into her little restaurant. We didn't know what to order so she said "let me decide" and gave us a fixed price. It was one of those moments when you just know you can trust the person and you won't be disappointed. We weren't. She brought out plates piled with conch fritters, kingfish, johnny cakes, and some fried plantains. It was absolutely wonderful.
