Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I am so happy you have been enjoying the snaps of Florida. If you ever get the chance to visit the Sunshine State there are lots of things to do outside of Central Florida and all the attractions there. Don't get me wrong - I love me some Disney/Sea World/Universal but Florida is so much more than the man-made theme parks. It is a sad fact but, often the readily available and naturally beautiful is overlooked for the more flashy and obvious things in life.
Today I wanted to mention some of the eats I enjoyed whilst visitng.
From reading this Blog you know that I am a big fan of the Diners. One of my favorites is Waffle House! You don't find them outside to the South much and there are none anywhere by me here in northern California.
They usually occur near highways and are great for fast and tasty breakfasts!! The one pictured above is in Daytona Beach at International Drive and 95 and is as good as all the rest. The one I ate at the most is the one in Ormond beach on US 1 and 95. You get a great meal for very little!!
Another place that exists in the South and when I was growing up and lived there you could only find in a Mall location is Chic-fil-a. They are some here in California but none in the SF -
You just can't beat a good chicken sandwich, Cole slaw and some waffle cut fries!!! Tha's some good eating!!!
I also love some good Barbecue - and Dustin's fits the bill. Along with very tasty pulled pork they have fried okra - and I do love okra - anyway it is fixed, but especially fried. They serve is with a side of ranch dressing (which I don't really care for).
We had Barbecue a few times while I was there and even went there for my mom's Birthday dinner - where I was the only one to order Barbecue pork - my mom, brother and nephew all ordered fried shrimp!!
There you go sports fans - a really nice trip south - it was hot, but nice!!! Thanks again for stopping by and for you super comments!!
Have a great weekend!!
