While in Aruba we celebrated Mother’s Day and after seeing that there was a special menu being offered at Bucuti and Tara Beach Resort’s Elements Restaurant (our favorite in Aruba) we made reservations. It didn’t disappoint!
Mother’s Day Dinner Menu
Smoked Salmon Carpaccio – Norwegian smoked salmon thinly layered over frisée greens with pumpernickel wedges and balsamic emulsion
– or –
Cauliflower Cream Soup – Roasted cauliflower unified with a hint of truffle butter and gently infused with parmesan cheese
Grilled Mango Sea Bass Fillet – Carefully pan seared and topped with fresh mango salsa

Twin Tournedos Argentina Style – USDA choice tenderloin steaks char broiled and accompanied by a savory Chimichurri sauce and seasonal vegetables
All main courses are served with choice of garlic mashed potatoes or wild rice
Mint Chocolate Crème Brûlée -Flavorful custard with a touch of mint and flamed caramelized sugar
Spence and I both selected the Salmon Carpaccio appetizer.
For our entrees, I chose the Sea Bass and Spence chose the Twin Tournedos – mine with the wild rice and his with the garlic mashed potatoes.
And of course, we saved room for the Mint Chocolate Creme Brulee – did you have any doubt?
