We went over to Maloney’s Irish Pub in Westchase for lunch today.  They weren’t very busy, but it took a really long time for our burgers to come out. Loren got the California burger & I went for just a plain cheeseburger.

Loren liked the burgers more than I did.  I found the patty to be a little too dense.  It had a nice toasted bun and the fries were good.  He liked the guacamole and bacon on his.  Total bill was $26.

Quick Lunch


Got some quick takeout from Mizette Lebanese Grill.

Falafel, hummus and baba ghanoush.  Yum!  The falafel were crispy on the outside and tender in the middle without being mushy.  The hummus and baba ghanoush are delicious.  It was a tasty $14 lunch.

We’re always on a quest to find new restaurants and tonight we ended up at the Daily News Cafe & Restaurant in Clearwater.  It was a Tuesday night and there weren’t very many people there.  We started off with the spinach & artichoke dip.

It was served with fresh pita, but it took us a few minutes to figure out how to eat it.  The pita was too soft to dip in the bowl so you had to spoon it on the pita instead.  The taste was familiar, almost like a broccoli cheese soup.  We decided to get the mixed grill for two so we could try a bit of everything.

I should have removed the pita and taken a better photo.  It had Cevapi, Sudzukice, Pljeskavica, Raznjici and fries.  Basically, it was a big plate of Balkan meats.  My favorite was the Cevapi.  They were small mildly spiced sausages.  The Pljeskavica was a very dense meat patty made with ground beef and lamb.  It was just too dense for me.  The Sudzukice were long, thin spicy sausages and the Raznjici were skewers of lamb and chicken.  The overall flavors were pretty mellow, though the Sudzukice was a little too spicy for me.   Overall, none of it really wow’d us.   We also got a slice of cake for dessert.

That was a tasty combo of chocolate cake and mousse filling.   Total bill with a drink was $49.
