We have to agree with “The Points Guy” who recently published the following on the very popular travel site:
Every state lays claim to certain culinary specialties, and Florida is no different. If your mind goes straight to Southern comfort foods like barbecued meat, grits, fried fritters and Key lime pie, you have your pulse on the foods locals love to make at home and order when dining out.
Located just steps from the Gulf of Mexico in the Captiva Island Inn, Keylime Bistro has a few signature items that are worth the visit. The stuffed grouper topped with lobster and Key lime hollandaise sauce is one of the restaurant’s most popular entrees, but save room for the incredible Key lime pie. It starts with a granola/graham cracker crust. Then, there are two layers of filling. The bottom baked layer is traditional with Key lime juice, condensed milk and egg yolks. Once that comes out of the oven, a second creamier layer — of cream cheese, Key lime juice, condensed milk, sugar, vanilla and whipped cream — is spooned on top. The pie is topped with a thinly sliced lime and whipped cream. A raspberry sauce adorns the plate and acts as a nice balance to the tart flavor of the pie filling. Buy it by the slice or purchase an entire pie to take home.
