We headed over to Palm Harbor for lunch at the Thirsty Marlin today.  An ahi tuna salad for Loren and a grouper sandwich for me.

Loren liked his salad, but I don’t think I could have eaten mine as a sandwich if I tried.  They were very awkward pieces of fish.  The grouper was ok, but very under seasoned.  Total bill with a drink was $33.

We were headed out to John Chestnut Park and stopped at Vettures for lunch beforehand.  The restaurant was empty when we got there.  We decided to split a meatball sub and some fries.

The meatballs were tasty, but the sub was so sloppy that I had to eat my half with a fork.  There was no way I was going to be able to pick it up & not end up wearing it.  The fries were hot and crispy.  Lunch with a drink ran us $14.

We ended up at Gino’s Pizza for lunch today.  Loren got a half Italian sub & salad and I went for the cheesesteak.

Loren said the Italian sub was pretty good.  For half a sandwich, it was plenty to fill him up.

I found the cheesesteak to be a bit on the dry side.  It was more than I could eat in one sitting.  The roll was really big, so Loren ended up just eating some of the cheesesteak out of it.  Total bill with a drink was $17.

Looking for lunch after a movie and we ended up at Shlomo’s Gourmet Subs & Deli.  They have a large menu of available items and we ended up getting a philly chicken and an Italian lovers to go.

Loren said his was pretty good, but I wasn’t thrilled with mine.  I didn’t like the spices that were on the chicken and it was precooked chicken slices which made it rather dry.  I guess one of the big draws of this place is that it’s open until 4am.   Total bill was $17.

  • We went over to Surfside Cafe for lunch today.  The first two things I tried to order weren’t available today for various reasons, so I finally settled on the elk burger that was on special.

    Elk is very lean so it was a bit on the dry side.  It had some spices in it and the overall flavor seemed very familiar to me, but I couldn’t place it.  I don’t think it’s something I’d order again.  Loren got a blackened chicken sandwich with some mac & cheese.

    The mac & cheese was dry, just like the first time we’d ordered it.  He said the chicken was tender, but not overly spicy.  Total bill with a drink was $20.
