The owner of the house Barb and I rented on Anna Maria Island recommended the eating establishment Mr. Bones to us. It is the spot that Phil said had the best barbeque in the United States. High praise indeed. We knew we had to try it. Walking into the restaurant our eyes immediately alighted on a coffin, which was filled with bottled beer. We made our choices and were guided into the small dining room. There were many masks on the walls that continued to give us a voodoo vibe. I enjoyed the atmosphere having never been in a place quite like it before.
The menu had a lot more offerings than barbeque. After much deliberation, I made my selection. In this dining place, that is so well known for barbeque, I chose Chicken in Thai Peanut Sauce. It boasted sliced tender breast smothered in a rich, spicy peanut sauce garnished with green onion and crushed peanuts. I also ordered curried rice with madras spices and vegetables which was served with mango chutney. The chicken was moist, but the sauce tasted like it was made with peanut butter. It was good, but I guess I was expecting more. The curried rice was flavorful and I would definitely order it again. Barb had the barbequed ribs and said it was excellent. Next time I need to remember to order the restaurant’s specialty. We each took a large portion of our meal home. I did order Key Lime Pie for dessert, though. It was both beautiful and delicious! True Nosh or Truly Nauseous? Overall, a true nosh.
