    We walk into little Havana. Great little place. Great ambience. Salsa and Bachata playing in the background. They have a full bar and this evening was 2 for 1. Wifey got a huge Chardonnay and I got a coke

    20121105-194336.jpg

    We got the Cuban Sampler. It was fantastic. Empanada, papa rellena, tamal cubano, croquettas, yuca rellena, and yuca frita. What a great way to start a meal. First impressions are so important and in this case they overly impressed.

    20121105-194443.jpg

    My entree was the Churrasco and wifey got the Picadillo. My meat was cooked medium and it tasted delicious. The red sauce on top made it more spectacular. Wifey got the side salad with house cilantro sauce. Their garlic sauces are so yummy.

    Very nice place in Sebastian Florida. I would come back to this place again and again. Thanks to Alina for her great service. Very informative. Gracias

    Of course we had to finish it all off with dessert to go. Tres leches and fried flan. We had to do it.

    Lemon Tree Restaurant

    Lemon Tree restaurant for breakfast is a must. Nice place. Loads of families here. Everyone is in a pleasant mood this morning. Lots of talk about voting.
    Found this place on line. Had great reviews so wifey and I had to try it. We got seated quickly.


    Very small place but it was hoppin. Loads of locals. Roxie knows everyone’s name. Great server and super friendly. It was time to eat so we got a bit of everything. Eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon, French toast, etc.

    Roxie highly recommended the pancakes. i have to say the pancakes were awesome.


    House made corn beef hash. This is not your regular Publix corn beef hash. This stuff took me back to my childhood. Amazing


    French Toast was wifey’s choice.


    Had to take a full pic of my breakfast. I can eat.


    To end the meal we were given muffins in a basket. Nice little touch.


    And of course the gourmet pasteurized orange juice.


    All in all, great place. affordable. This is some good ole home style cookin. Ask for Roxie. She will give ya the 411 on what to order.

    Frosting


    My dream has come true. I have made it to Frosting. Now keep in mind this is the same Frosting people who made the cake for Gloria Estefan’s son. So, we knew we were in for a treat. Here is the menu of the week. The menu changes day by day. They vary up the flavors.


    Great selection. So I started of with the basics. Red Velvet, Vanilla, Garbage Can, Milk Chocolate Truffle, Strawberry Cream, Oreo.


    Denise, the woman helping us was super kind and allowed me to go behind the register and take the pics. You rock Denise!! Since they looked so good wifey placed an order for tomorrow. We got an assorted dozen to bring home and eat. Ok, maybe share some with the family.

    The store is very nice. Inside its like a Carnival of sweets and goodies. They sell candies. Drinks, lunch boxes, etc. stuff you would never imagine in a store like this.


    My favorite part was the Frosting logo on the wall.


    The way they have the cupcakes on the glass shelf was interesting. I would have preferred eye level or higher. I had to kneel down to see what flavor I wanted. Plus they weren’t in one area. They were spread out which was interesting. Here are the pics of the cupcakes in the glass shelf


    Noticed how they are spread out. Strange, yet extremely yummy. I also liked the displays around the store. This one caught my attention. Notice the cupcakes in the plastic containers. Dunno why that does it for me all the time.


    Unfortunately, we ended on a sort of unhappy ending. While driving back to our hotel I press the brakes really hard and all the cupcakes fell out of the box from the back seat of the car. Yikes. Needless to say we have some cupcakes that have some dirt and hair in them. Maybe it will be on the menu for next time. : )
    Here is the pic of the smashed cupcakes. Sad me.

    Bangkok In Downtown

    As I had mentioned this morning wifey and I were planning to eat Thai food in Vero Beach. I had read great things about Bangkok. Awesome reviews online so we had to do it.


    Nice looking place from the outside. I especially like their achievement award near the door. Here it is.


    Rumor had it within this small town that this restaurant was closed. I asked a local and they said it was for a bit but they didn’t know why. I know better than to keep on asking so I decided to let it be. Wifey and I wanted to be sure we got there early before the lunch rush. We are glad we did. Lots of locals running in for their 30 minute or one hour lunch. We knew we had made the right choice once we saw the people walking in.


    Gorgeous place inside. Hard to tell by the pic but there was an aquarium with all kinds of fish on the back of each wall for each room. It was very cool. We were greeted with the soup of the day which was hot and sour soup.


    It was spicy. Nice little jump start before the main meal. All loads of flavors but the spice made it pop. I wasn’t that hungry so I decided to get the red curry chicken. After the young lady asked if I wanted the lunch special I could not resist. So I ended up with the Bento A Lunch box.


    I, of course, had to ask for it Thai spicy. It was so good. The perfect spice without being too overwhelming. I have to admit the sushi and the sashimi I had to take to go. When I arrived I ordered two Thai teas and was too full to eat anything else.


    Wifey ordered the Pad See-ew. Flat rice noodles with egg, onions, broccoli, carrots, and house sauce. She got it medium hot and it was tasty. I see why the locals come to this place. Everything had great flavor and the ambience made it even better. We decided to end the meal with a Thai spring roll which came with the lunch special. It was the perfect way to end a spicy meal.


    Bangkok In Downtown is the place to be in downtown Vero. Go and check them out when you are in the area. And by the way, don’t believe the rumors that its closed. Make sure to call them before you go just to be sure. : )

    Basil Ristorante Italiano

    Wow. What a fun three days of eating and tasting everything that Vero Beach and Sebastian Florida has to offer. As I told my wife, there weren’t enough hours in a day to try all the restaurants in town. We truly ended with a bang. Italian was the theme of the evening.


    Again, checked online and read the reviews. I will admit I was a bit nervous about this one but it turned out to be the perfect ending to a great mini vacation.


    From the outside we pictured the restaurant to be huge. How happily mistaken we were when we walked in and it was nice and cozy. This is definitely our style. The server apologized for not greeting us at the door since we went ahead and sat ourselves. The soup of the evening was Pasta Fagioli.


    It wasn’t our favorite. Wifey described it best as tasting like Puerto Rican red beans. I think we took two or three bites and moved the cups to the side to prepare ourselves for the main entree. Wifey ordered the Spaghetti Bolagnaise.


    Very good. Of course, wifey added some pepper and crushed red pepper flakes to give it some kick. Huge portion. Half of this came back with us to the hotel. I ordered the Chicken Alfredo.


    Tasty indeed. I did find myself adding salt and pepper as well. It was tasty on its own but after our Thai lunch this same day I was looking for more flavor. The warm bread and butter basket was nice. We didn’t even touch it and you will be surprised we didn’t even get dessert. Now that is a first.


    If in town I would suggest this place to anyone. Great music playing in the background. Classical Italian music or at least it’s what it seems like to me. Great service and great food. You can’t go wrong.

    Taqueria Tres Amigos


    Wifey and I came back from Vero Beach today, but we had to make one last stop before we went to pick up our daughter. Taqueria Tres Amigos has been in Kissimmee now for about three years. Sad to say this is the first time I have been. So glad I did stop by. It was so worth it. It’s located in the historic area of downtown Kissimmee. When I first saw the restaurant I was taken aback. From the outside it has the Taqueria sign but has a Puerto Rican flag inside. Well, ya know me. It sparked my interest so I had to go in.


    Wish I would have taken a picture of the PR flag inside. I am sure I will be going again so I will update the blog when I do get the pic. The best part of this was the PR buffet in the Mexican restaurant.


    And I am talking everything, alcapurrias made to order, empanadas, quesitos, chuletas, carne guisada, etc. The buffet looked great. Wifey and I decided to order from the menu. I was in the mood for some serious steak tacos. We started with two. WOW! Amazing taste. Flavor all over the place. I went back and ordered four more.


    They were just the right size and just the way I like them. Steak, onions, and cilantro. YUM. Squirted a little lime and we were set. The one taco you see on the top we added red sauce which is given to you on the side when you order the tacos. Not super spicy, but it was just the right touch to enhance the flavor of the tacos. When wifey and I were done we ordered to go so we would have dinner for tonight. I told our server I was going to order more and she was ready with her pad and pen.

    I started with the steak burrito


    I appreciated that the owner allowed me to take pics at the restaurant before I brought them home. It has the works in it. Rice, beans, steak, etc. This one looks like it may be mine for dinner tonight. Next on the list was the chicken and cheese quesadillas.


    Just the way baby girl likes them. Actually, she just loves the sour cream, but that’s a whole other blog. They add a side of pico de gallo, sour cream, and guacamole. Looks great.


    The other dish we ordered to go was the Carne Asada with rice and beans.


    Not the best pic, but again I was glad the owner let me take them before I brought it home.

    The staff was amazing. Very friendly and informative. They open for breakfast at 8:00am and close at 6:00pm on the weekdays. Weekends they close at 9:00pm or 10:00pm if its busy. Weekend specials include Menudo. I would recommend this place to everyone. Actually, when my parents come to visit I will take them to Taqueria Tres Amigos.
