The legend about Cafe Ysabel

The story about this place we will tell to our grandchildren!
This very pleasant surprise is located in San Juan City, in a an old Spanish colonial house.
Everything was great at Ysabel’s. Excellent food, friendly and efficient service, fair prices, great ambient.
We had Halibut crusted with slivered almonds and sole Roulade filled with crabmeat. Superb and Yummy. As an appetizer fresh and very tasty oysters and green salad. This simple, green Ysabel’s Salad changed our lives.

But that is a different story.

This story is about the menu.
About the sentence my husband found: A dessert without cheese is like a beautiful woman with one eye.

The legend about Cafe Ysabel is born!

any kind of green salad 
half the pomelo (peeled and separated into smaller chunks)
handful of seedless grapes (some cut in half some whole)
some basil, mint and flat parsley leaves
some edible flowers
toasted almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds (black and white), walnuts and flax seeds (basically whatever you have at home)

Combine all together.
