This week the Angels got a special invitation by one of San Pedro’s Top Resorts and Restaurants for us to enjoy a day of relaxation and fun away from the busy streets of San Pedro, as we got to be guests at Rojo Lounge/Rojo Mrkt at Azul Resort.
For this special treat even our lovely boss, Dorian, got to come along and enjoy a stress-free afternoon with us (or so I believe)! Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by Vivian and Findley and were escorted to the famous Rojo Mrkt where we headed to the counter; a friendly Shanti took our lunch orders.
Rojo Mrkt has an open kitchen to showcase the preparation of the food and Perlita wasted no time in helping out Chef Jeff to prepare a delicious pizza and toss it in the oven. Scarleth got busy taking out some Draft beer which is sold for $3.00 (the only place you can buy draft beer at that prize) and I prepared a delicious Mudslide under the supervision of bartender Ricky.
At Rojo Lounge you can enjoy the fresh sea breeze under the beachfront palapa while sitting on custom designed bamboo furnishings with large cushions or sit by the pool while sipping a great piña colada.
We enjoyed great Conch Ceviche with fresh corn tortilla chips, Plantain crusted shrimp served with papaya chili sauce, a Sausage Factory Special Pizza and a finger-licking Cuban sandwich prepared with smoked pork shoulder, ham, Swiss cheese, pickles and roasted red peppers.
After lunch Scarleth was more than eager to take a dip in the pool so we all cooled off while chatting with our host, Findley, who kept us entertained and made sure we had a most pleasurable afternoon.
Not only can you find great food, drinks and great service at Rojo Mrkt, you can now shop at in their new boutique where you can find great brand named clothing for men and women, swim wear and sandals at reasonable prices.
So whether you are looking for a great place to eat and have a great time with friends, go on over to Rojo Lounge/Mrkt where days are casual and you can kick off your shoes and relax. Visit Rojo Mrkt at Azul Resort on North Ambergris Caye, ph# 226-4012, and Remember if the Angels recommend it ….It’s Gotta Be GOOD!!!
