This meal came about at a good time, when our GREAT friend Tommy Eskew was making his presence felt in the BK. We had eaten a few good meals around, seen some great music (Gabriel Alegria @ Tutuma Social Club — get you some) and had an overall wonderful time, accompanied by the one and only Jonny Salud along the way. The only thing left was to cook up.
