Nana’s Bakery


If you are ever in the Poinciana area please, please, please come and stop at Nana’s. They have baked goods and more. Empanadas, cupcakes, quesitos, etc. Very nice Spanish bakery. Couldn’t get the sense of what country. Worth a visit.


Nana’s needs some love and some more customers. They have been here for a year according to Jesus who made my sandwich tonight. Gracias Jesus for the amazing meal.
 


Two tables is all Nana needs. It’s rare for customers to sit and eat. It’s more of an order and go sort of place. While I sat down the locals were coming in for the pastries and the empanadas.
 


Tripleta Sandwich. Ham, Pernil, and Steak. I had to do it. Amazing. Great sandwich. They also have steak, Cubano, and Ham, Egg and Cheese. They also have Alcapurrias.
 


Tornillo. Filled with Bavarian Cream. A great way to end my meal. I bought a steak sandwich to go for @xobejm to try. I am sure it will be just as yummy.
 
 Great little place. Nana’s Bakery is located in the Southport Plaza. Behind the Racetrack on Pleasant Hill and Southport. BUEN PROVECHO!!

Nikki’s Corner Cafe


What an interesting morning. Rubio and KTS were in town and we had to look for a foodventure. We were in the Poinciana area and saw the sign and had to go in.


Nice place. Feels like you are entering someone’s living room and dining room. Pictures of cats and cat figurines within the restaurant.


It was empty when we walked in and we were not greeted in such a friendly manner, but KTS was super friendly and our server changed her behavior. Fortunately.
 


The open kitchen concept was a bit strange to me. This is the first thing you see as soon as you walk into the restaurant.


I ordered the Ham Steak, Eggs over medium, Wheat toast, and Hash Browns.


Rubio ordered the Country Fried Steak with gravy, eggs over easy, wheat toast, and hash browns.

 KTS ordered the Bubba’s Benedict: Biscuit stacked with two sausage patties and two eggs covered in sausage gravy and hash browns.
 
 Overall, service was just okay. Our server wasn’t the friendliest. She changed her tone as we ordered and spoke to her a bit more. The food was great. I enjoy that southern homestyle cooking. I would go again and try their other items for lunch and dinner.
 
 Thanks to Rubio and KTS for putting up with my foodventure concept. Y’all are real troopers.

Amigos Mexican Grill


Thank you so much to @xobejm and @annrodoz for joining me on this foodventure. It was a last minute arrangement and it worked out well.


Here we are. This was formerly a hobby shop and loved by many in Kissimmee. Now it’s Amigos Mexican Grill.


Many friends thought this was their neighborhood Tex-Mex location in Orlando. Not even close to that.


This is Moe’s and Chipotle had a Latino baby and they named him Amigos Mexican Grill.
 


@Xobejm got the Amigos Bowl with steak and the works on it. She was able to pick whatever topping she wanted. This was perfect for her.


@annrodoz got the Chicken and Cheese quesadilla. Again made to her liking with all her favorite toppings inside.
 


Mine was the Amigos Burrito. Again, with anything I wanted inside. I ordered the steak.
 
 The customer service was awesome. They have been open for 2 months and they will be having a live band soon. If you are a fan of Moe’s then you will love this restaurant. We were given a taste of every meat they had. Nice variety and very flavorful.
 
 Overall, don’t expect authentic Mexican because it’s not. It’s just a more improved version of Chipotle. These ingredients are just as fresh and it’s not a chain. Give it a try. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Savion’s Place


Downtown Kissimmee and it’s hidden treasures.
 


You wouldn’t see Savion’s by just driving by during the day.


In the evening plenty of people sitting outside is what caught my attention.


Very nice place. Great service. I went during lunch and when it had just opened.
 


The fresh bread is always a good starter.
 


Vegetable Pasta was a must. This was the special of the day.
 


Fish Tacos. Very tasty. I am embarrassed to say I had to take two of them to go because one filled me up so quickly. These were very good.
 
 I want to go back and try more dishes and some desserts to see what they have. Overall, this place is a winner. With me it’s always the service.

Murray’s Deli


Another gorgeous day in Paradise. Paradise Island that is. AA and I had decided to go on a #foodventure and Atlantis would be the place.


Lucky for us @gailyw and hubby happened to be in town visiting, so we planned on meeting for lunch.


This place is HUGE. Fits a bunch of people and trust me after a few minutes it got packed.


The place is clean. Open kitchen is always nice. Makes me feel safe.


The decor is amazing and the place is jammin with current songs and oldies.


Shakes with liquor. @Gailyw and hubby wasted no time. You can order the shakes with the liquor of choice. Good way to start a vacation.


Roast Beef with Au Jus. This was very flavorful. Now I won’t say that it’s better than Chicago. But I would say this was pretty good


Chicken and waffles. How can you ever go wrong with chicken and waffles? Their portions are big. You have to come hungry.


All kinds of cakes for dessert. None of us could possibly eat one of these desserts, but it all looked so good I had to take a picture of it.


Thank you so much to Gail and Simon for making time to eat with us. AA and I had a blast.

The service was a bit slow, but our server was very nice and efficient. It does get very busy and that’s why it tends to take a little bit longer to get your food.

Rubio’s Cuban Cafe


On this chilly morning AR and I head out early to see what we could find. Rubio’s has an interesting schedule and not open early morning. We were craving a Cuban coffee, but no luck. There store hours are as follows:
 
 Monday to Friday
 11am to 3pm
 5pm to 7pm
 
 Saturday and Sunday
 11am to 7pm


Awesome little place. They make a good use of space in this tiny area.


Great decor on walls and the place is very clean.


We arrived at 11am sharp, so no customers when we arrived. About 12pm the lunch rush came in and we had to pay and leave in a hurry before it became too crowded. We were heading back to the ship and we couldn’t be late.


The paintings on the wall were gorgeous and we were greeted by Andrea. She said it was only her third day working there and she was amazing.
 


I haven’t had a Jupiña since I was a kid. I may have hyped it up too much in my head. It’s just pineapple soda. : )


AR had the Passion Fruit. I didn’t want to take a taste. Most of these drinks have way too much sugar in them. AR said it tasted refreshing.


Croquetas
 Two ground ham croquettes, rolled, breaded and deep fried. I always have loved these. Nice and hot when they brought them out. Always a good way to start the meal.
 


Frita/Cuban Burger
 Cuban Style burger of seasoned ground beef served with onions, and piled high potato sticks on a burger bun. I have had these in Miami and they are delicious. This one was definitely a second place contender. Keep in mind we have nothing like this in Orlando, so having a Frita in Cape Canaveral was pretty cool.


Ropa Vieja with white rice and maduros. This was AR’s dish. I ate most of hers too. Very nice. Not out of this world good, but good combination.
 
 Andrea, thank you so much for the great service and hospitality. Your suggestions were spot on. Until we “Eat” again.

Sharkeez Bar and Grill


I have been pleasantly surprised today. This was a place I did not want to go to. I repeat. Did not. While being upset about going in to the restaurant we came across a lovely young lady who greeted us at the top of the steps.
 


I was traveling with my good friend AA this week and we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. I wanted to try this Italian restaurant just down the road, but we weren’t in the pasta mood.
 


Sharkeez to me will always be a tourist trap. I guess I got suckered into being trapped as well. But I have to tell you…..I LOVED IT. Let’s start with the basics. Greeted by a lovely young lady. Sat down and the music was just right. All kinds of Pop songs that made you want to boogie as soon as you walked in. There is outside seating as well which I didn’t take a picture of. And it’s a gorgeous view of the water and the ships.
 


I asked our lovely server what she recommended to drink and she came back a second later with a Kalik. Nice and smooth beer. “The Beer Of The Bahamas”.
 


Bahamian Conch Fritters
 Delicious Caribbean conch fritters, fried golden brown, served with their homemade calypso island sauce. I had to order this one. Saw it on the menu and I loved the sauce that came with it.
 


Fish and Chips (Mahi Mahi) This was AA’s dish. I had a taste and it was perfect. Our server suggested the Mahi and she was absolutely right.
 


Jerk Chicken Sandwich
 Jerked to perfection served on sesame seed bun with lettuce and tomatoes with cheese. This was my dish. What else is there to say?
 
 Unfortunately, I never got the name of our server. She was great. The whole staff work as a team here and everyone was in great spirits. The music makes a big difference in people’s mood. They serve all kinds of dishes. American and Bahamian. For you non-adventurers this is the place to come and have a good meal. I truly enjoyed it.
 
 Lots of crew come here for the free wifi as well. When we walked in it wasn’t busy. By the time we were leaving it was packed. Big Kudos to AA for being a trooper and coming out to find a new food-venture.
