New Specials


It’s time for the new specials at Craft Street Kitchen, so we had to go check them out.  Ok, so we would have gone there anyway, but it’s always fun to try something new on the menu and this one did not disappoint.  It’s called the Swamp Thing.

When I read what was in it, I honestly didn’t know how they were going to pull it off.  It’s an open faced sandwich with brisket, calamari, scallops, crawfish, and shrimp with a spicy sauce on an Amoroso roll.  It was delicious.  The brisket was so tender and the seafood was all cooked perfectly.  I may need to have another one of these before the month is out.  Loren went for their Green Street salad with chicken.

He gotten this one before for good reason.  Tasty chicken with a fresh salad including walnuts, dried cranberries, green apple, grapes and he substituted the gorganzola cheese for goat cheese.  Total bill with a drink was $34.

  • Time for the new monthly specials at Craft Street Kitchen.  Tonight we tried the Southern Pu-chos and the Lobster Fra-violi.

    The Pu-chos is a mash up of poutine and nachos.  It had brisket, collard greens, black eyed peas, and cheddar cheese on top of waffle fries.  There was a lot going on and it all worked together.

    The lobster ravioli was served with fried calamari, shrimp and mussels in a spicy fra diavolo sauce.  The seafood and ravioli were good, but the sauce was a little too spicy for me.  Total bill with a drink was $37.

    BBQ


    When we’re looking for a meal that will yield leftovers, there’s nothing better than the Boss Hog Special at Ozona Pig.

    It’s enough food for way more than 2 people.  Ribs, pulled pork, chicken & brisket, plus two sides and deviled eggs.  They do a really tasty job with their BBQ.  The ribs were smoky and tender.  None of those made it home.  The pulled pork was also very tender and we just kept nibbling until we forced ourselves to put the rest away.  If you want to taste a little bit of everything, this is the way to go.  Total bill with a drink was $31.

  • BBQ for Two


    BBQ was on the menu for dinner tonight, so we headed over to the Ozona Pig.  It was fairly early, so they weren’t too busy yet.  Since we wanted some leftovers for tomorrow, we went ahead & ordered the Boss Hog special.

    It had ribs, chicken, pulled pork and brisket plus two sides.  All of the meats were tender with a nice smokey flavor.  We had plenty to eat and enough for another meal for both of us.  Total bill with a drink was $32.

  • A Little Dry


    BBQ was on the menu for dinner so we headed to downtown Safety Harbor and Brady’s Backyard BBQ.  Loren’s a fan of the riblets, so he got those with some garlic red potatoes and greens.

    He said the riblets were good, but he didn’t like the potatoes.  I liked them, though.  I ordered the brisket with a side of cornbread pudding, a try of potato salad, and some mac & cheese that they had on the menu tonight.

    I like really tender and juicy bbq meats and the brisket just didn’t do it for me.  I found it dry.  Loren liked it though, so he ended up with most of it for lunch tomorrow.  The cornbread pudding and potato salad are always delish, but I also found the mac & cheese to be a bit on the dry side too.  It had good flavors and the wait staff were raving about it, but I just prefer mine a bit creamier.  Total bill with a drink was $30.
