Monthly Specials


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.

Breakfast


We went back to the Palm Harbor Bistro this morning to check out their breakfast menu.  Loren got the Empire skillet and I went for a 2-2-2 Your Way.

The Empire skillet had sausage, bacon, onions, mushrooms & cheese on top of fried potatoes plus 2 eggs and toast.  There was plenty of food on the plate.  I really their scrambled eggs.  They were light and fluffy.

For my 2-2-2, I got pancakes, eggs over easy and bacon with hash browns.   It was good, but I’d go for the scrambled eggs next time.  Total bill was $20.

Lunch Specials


We went over to The Wild Rover for lunch today.  We got two of their $8 lunch specials and a Scotch egg just because.

The Scotch egg was tasty.  It had a very flavorful sausage exterior and a perfectly hard boiled egg in the center.   Loren got the sandwich of the day which was a roast beef and I went with the lunch sausage roll and clam chowder.

Everything was fresh and had good flavors.  The sausage roll had a crispy flaky crust and the whole lunch was $21.

Palm Harbor Bistro


We’ve driven by the Palm Harbor Bistro on Hwy 19 a bunch of times and decided to stop in for dinner tonight.  There weren’t a lot of people there for dinner.  It seems more of a breakfast & lunch place.  Loren ordered the Crispy Chicken Salad and I went for the Hangover Burger.

 

The fried chicken on the salad was very tender and tasty.  You can tell it was properly marinated to make it juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside.  The hangover burger had bacon, egg & cheese on it.  The burger was a perfect medium and the bacon was cooked well and the over easy egg oozed just the way it should.  I also got the homemade french fries which were pretty tasty as well.  Everyone was very friendly in the restaurant and the food was good.  They have a big menu and we’ll be back again.  Total bill with a drink was $24.

Brunch


Where to eat on a Sunday morning in downtown Orlando?  Le Gourmet Break on S. Magnolia is where we ended up and it was delicious.   I was in Orlando to see a play with my sister & niece and from the moment we walked into Le Gourmet Break, we were hooked.  It was too early for dessert, but they had a display case of gorgeous looking pastries.  My niece went for the tuna panini, my sister got the Parisienne crepe and I went for an omelette croissant.

Everything was fresh and delicious.  The panini was tasty, the crepe had thinly sliced ham, turkey & swiss with a bechamel sauce & mushrooms and the cheese was perfectly ooey gooey, & melted.  The croissant was huge and I got it with ham, cheddar & mushrooms.  It was buttery and flaky and the eggs were cooked perfectly.    Total bill was about $30 and we’d definitely eat here again.
