We went over to Salsa’s Mexican Restaurant for lunch today.  They’re really good about getting food out fast.  They dropped off chips and salsa.  Loren said it’s gotten better, but still lacks that burst of fresh flavors that he’s gotten in other salsas.

He ordered the lunch chicken fajitas.  He asked the waiter if it came with guacamole and he said yes, but of course when it came to the table, it didn’t have any.  The waiter did rectify the situation quickly though.  It seems they still need to get more familiar with their own menu.

I ordered the Cancun Chimichanga.  It’s a shrimp chimi and though the shell wasn’t crispy enough, it did have pretty good flavors.  The refried beans had a little bit of a smoky flavor to them today.

 

Total bill with a drink was $19.

    Had a chicken salad today at Daddy’s Grill for lunch.

    Sadly, I ate most of the salad, but not much of the actual chicken salad on top of it because it had raw onions in it.  I should know better by now not to order those kinds of salads since I’m so picky.  Service was a bit slow, especially when we were finished eating and waiting for our check.  Total bill was $8.

  • Mmm… Mahi


    We stopped by Cuban Breezes for lunch today around 1pm and it was packed.  We luckily snagged the last available table.  I had no idea Sunday afternoon was such a busy time for them.  Loren ordered his usual lechon and I went for something light today, the grilled mahi with rice/beans and a side salad.

     

    Both dishes were really good today.  The pork was tender and flavorful and the mahi was some of the best I’ve eaten.  It’s cooked perfectly, tender and flaky, with just a hint of seasoning.  Definitely something I’d order again.  With a drink, the total bill was $19.

  • Sushi Lunch


    Sushi sounded good for lunch today, so we headed over to YoYo Sushi in Oldsmar.  The restaurant never seems very busy, but I’m so glad they’re still in business.  They make some of the best sushi we’ve eaten.

    We went for two of their lunch sushi specials, which includes 2 rolls for $8.95. I got the shrimp crunch roll and a California roll and Loren got the spicy tuna and a spider roll.

     

     

    One of the things I really like about the sushi here is the rice.  It’s always cooked perfectly and has a subtle flavor to it.  The California roll had a crab type salad in it instead of a chunk of crab.  It gave it a different flavor which I really liked.  The shrimp in the crunch roll was cooked perfectly.  Loren liked the spicy tuna roll more than the spider roll.  The spider roll just looks a bit creepy with all those legs hanging out of it.  With a drink, the total bill was $21.

  • Loren hadn’t eaten anything since breakfast, so he wanted something filling for dinner.  That means Cracker Barrel.  Chicken fried chicken, mashed potatoes, greens, biscuits, and fried apples filled him right up.

    I went for breakfast instead of dinner and settled on French Toast.

     

    I didn’t think I was going to eat all four pieces and yet I did.  It was cooked perfectly.  The only thing I would have changed would have been to add a little cinnamon to the custard that the bread is dipped in.  It would have really put this dish over the top.  The warmed syrup is a nice touch too.  Total bill with a drink was $22.
