All you can eat shrimp!
This past week I had the pleasure of enjoying the all you can eat shrimp at The Almanett Hotel and Bistro.Graciously named after the owners Grandmother, this boutique hotel offeres six rooms quaint rooms and is within walking distance to the beach and downtown historic Gulfport. The Almanett has a beautiful ambiance that is elegant and peaceful. The lighting is kept low and romantic. The staff is friendly accomidating.
I could'int not go to this fun spot after I heard a commercial on the radio that describes the shrimp as being "so large they have a hump in their back" HAHA!! They did not disappoint. Those were some big shrimp. I started with the BBQ shrimp which were served in a delicious garlic butter, creole BBQ sauce with warm buttered French bread. I was impressed. This was like a small piece of heaven touching my taste buds. Next, since this is All you can eat, I went for the fried shrimp. They were cooked to crispy to perfection with just the right about of breading and great seasoning. Now even though I was full by this time, I knew I could not let my fellow dessert lovers down, so I decided to finish off my meal with their bread pudding. YUUUUMMMMY! The pudding was very thick and creamy, served warm and topped with carmel drizzle and pecans. The portion was large enough to share witch I did. Also, I am happy to report their were no raisins in the pudding, which made my kiddos happy. Oh, did I mention I brought the kid? While we had a great time, This place is on the romantic side and would make a great date night dinner stop. Next time, I'll bring the hubby instead!
