I had pizza on the brain, so we decided to try Big Roman’s Pizza on Drew St.  All the reviews I read said to order the meatball garlic rolls, so we did.

These are truly a meal in themselves.  Tasty meatball wrapped up in a garlic roll.  They were good.  We ended up taking half of them home since we also ordered a large pizza.

What can I say, I like leftover pizza.  We got meatballs & mushrooms with onions on half.  It was a good pie.  The crust & sauce were good and there was plenty of cheese and toppings.  I also got some cannoli to go.

They were tasty little cannoli, though they weren’t quite filled all the way to the center.  Total bill with a drink was $28.

  • Lebanese Food


    A coworker told me about Mizette Lebanese Grill out on Hwy 19.  How has this place been here for almost 2 years and I’ve never heard of it?  We went over there for dinner tonight and we’ll definitely be back again.  They have a platter for two so we got that so we could try a little bit of everything.

    The platter has beef and chicken shawarma, falafel, hummus, baba ghannouj, pickled veggies, tabbouleh, and pita.  It also comes with some tahini and a garlic paste.   Here’s a close up of the shawarma and falafel.

    Everything was fresh and flavorful.  The meat was tender and I’m a little embarrassed to say we ate the entire thing.  It was a lot of food, but we just couldn’t stop eating it.  The owners are very friendly and I would highly recommend coming here.  Total bill with a couple of drinks was $33.

    I was craving pizza today so we decided to try Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza.  We sat outside, but soon regretted it when someone at another table started smoking.   Our pizzas seemed to be taking a long time and I noticed people who sat down after us were getting their food before ours.  The waitress came over and let us know that they had to remake our pizzas because they got a bit too well done.

    We both got an individual lunch pizza.  Loren got one with onions, olives & mushrooms and I got the mini meatball & ricotta.

    The lunch pizza is plenty big enough for one person and then some.  Both pizzas still had a bit of overly burnt around the edges and some of the meatballs on mine were too overdone to be eaten.  Neither of us was that impressed with the pizza.  Nothing really stood out about it.  It didn’t have a lot of seasoning or flavor.    I ordered the chocolate cake for dessert and the waitress said it was on the house because they had burnt our original pizzas.

    This was one thick, rich chocolate cake.  The cake itself was a bit dry though.  It definitely needed something to cut the richness, either some ice cream or whipped cream.  The layer on chocolate on top was like a hot fudge sauce.  Total bill with a drink was $27 and I think we’ll continue our search for an awesome pizza place.

  • Greek Lunch


    We went over to Famous Greek Salads on McMullen Booth Rd for lunch today.  It was a beautiful day & we sat outside.  Loren ordered the lunch Pick 2 with a Greek Salad and dolmades.

    He was very pleased with the dolmades.  He said they weren’t just stuffed with rice, but had a flavorful beef filling as well.  The Greek salad had everything you could want in it with a tasty dressing.  I ordered a gyro with potato salad.

    The gyro meat was cut thick and had a great flavor.  The pita was fresh and the tzatziki sauce was full of garlic, just like it should be.  Service was quick and friendly.  With a drink, the total was $19 and worth every penny.

  • We had dinner at Asian Pearl in Clearwater tonight.  This is our go-to Chinese restaurant.  The food is always so fresh and tasty.  We started off with some spring rolls.

    Perfect crunch and a tasty filling.  Loren ordered the X.O. beef.  He’s ordered it before and always asks the waitress what’s in the XO sauce.  Whatever it is, it’s flavorful stuff.

    The beef is tender and he likes all of the different veggies in it.  I tried the cashew chicken tonight.

    This also had a lot of well cooked veggies, plus tender chicken in a tasty brown sauce.  There was enough on the plate that I had leftovers for the next day.  We’ll definitely be back for more.  Total bill with a drink was $33.
