We had lunch at Molly Goodheads today.  It was early, so they weren’t very busy.  We started off with a bowl of the He Crab soup.  Loren got the turkey avocado bacon sandwich and I tried the seafood salad sandwich.

The soup was good.  Loren really liked his sandwich.  He said it had a good combination of flavors with a bit of kick from the chipolte mayo.  My sandwich; however, was not at all what I was expecting.  It was more of a seafood spread than anything else and it’s also on the menu as an appetizer like that.  It was supposed to be shrimp, crab & lobster, but it was indistinguishable as any of those things.  I didn’t like the texture, flavor or anything about it.  At a minimum, it needed some crunchy lettuce.  It probably would be ok warmed up with some chips to dip in it, but just didn’t work as a sandwich.  Total bill with a drink was $29.

  • We went over to Dunedin tonight and had dinner at Hog Island Fish Camp.  It was a little too warm to eat outside, but I wish they could do something to damper the noise inside.  It’s hard to have a conversation when the dining room is full.  It’s the same thing I said last time we were here.  We started off with the crab cake appetizer.

    The crab cake had a nice crunch on the outside and it was filled with crab.  One of the better crab cakes we’ve had around here.  Loren went for the mixed grill for dinner.

    He said the fish was blackened nicely and the kebab was cooked well.  The rice dish had a lot of fresh corn in it.  I went for the half portion of the shrimp & grits.

    The half portion was a bit too small for me for dinner.  It had shrimp and grouper cheeks over creamy grits.  The tomato gravy was ok.  It had a familiar flavor to it, but I couldn’t place it.  For dessert, we couldn’t pass up the orange cake.

    It tasted just like a creamsicle.  The cake was moist and the orange flavor was prevalent throughout the entire thing, in the cake, the filling, and the frosting.  We licked the plate clean.  Total bill with a drink was $55.

    We decided to check out Cafe Mezze Mediterranean in Oldsmar for dinner tonight.  It’s at the other end of the parking lot from Flamestone and the food was tasty.  They started us off with some bread & we ordered the fried calamari.

    The bread was thick and good for dipping in the oil.  Loren thought both the oil and calamari needed a bit more salt.  The calamari was perfectly cooked in a light batter.  It was served with a taratora sauce.  It had sort of a mayonnaise consistency, but not a strong flavor of any kind.  We both ordered kebab combos.  Loren got the adana & kofte and I got the lamb & chicken.

    They were all very flavorful and delicious.  The meats were tender and it was served with some veggies, a cabbage type slaw and rice that neither of us could stop eating.  Although we were both pretty full, I couldn’t pass up the kanefe.

    We’d had it at a different restaurant before. It’s crispy shredded phyllo dough with a soft cheese in the middle, pistachios and a honey sauce.  It’s not overly sweet, but has a bunch of different textures to it.  It’s so good.  It does take 15 minutes to cook, so either order it early or let your meal settle first so you have room for it.  So good.  Total bill with a $10 off coupon (check their website for latest coupon) was $40.  We’ll definitely be back again.
