Check out Ceviche in downtown St. Petersburg

??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️I was super excited to meet friends last weekend at the Ceviche Tapas restaurant in downtown St. Petersburg. The first thing that I noticed was the relaxed, laid back but festive atmosphere.

We were greeted promptly and escorted to our seats (by the window with a view).

Ceviche offers Spanish style dishes including salads, appetizers, small plates for sharing, regular entrees and yummy desserts. Click HERE for the menu. They are expecially known for their fruity sangria that is to die for ??!

The service was exceptional and the wait staff attentive as there was never an empty water glass? …. If there was any negative to the evening, it was the effort in talking to my friends because of the loud environment, but Hey…. it was easy to overlook because everything else was near perfect!

If you haven’t been to Ceviche, I would highly recommend a trip to downtown St. Pete to check it out!

Check out Thai Spice in Clearwater

??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️One of my everyday go-to meals is Thai food! You can never go wrong with stir fry veggies over rice in a delicious sauce… YUMMY! There are plenty of Thai restaurants around, but one of my favorites is in Clearwater at the corner of McMullen Booth Rd. and Enterprise Road, Thai Spice.??

I typically go there for lunch and their lunch specials include a yummy salad with dressing that is out of this world. It is SO good, that you may even want to sip it like a drink! LOL They also include an egg roll as an appetizer. Their meal items are very well presented which even makes your mouth water more. And, wait for it….. you also good a fried pastry bite for dessert. ALL of this comes with their lunch special at a very reasonable rate.

If you are ever looking for a quick bite for lunch, good service and excellent food, don’t hesitate to pop in Thai Spice in Clearwater! Let me know when you are going, and I will gladly meet you there?

There food is SO SO fresh and they offer a wide variety of wraps, salads, smoothies, bowls and sandwiches. Check out their menu HERE. They always have a few “sweet” things that are fresh out of the oven to entice you as well for your after meal delight.

The inside dining area is tastefully decorated and makes you feel like you want to snuggle up with a book while you enjoy your meal. There is also outside covered seating as well for those nice sunny days that we have so often in Clearwater.

If you haven’t been there yet, I highly recommend that you give it a whirl ???????

Check out Pan Y Vino in Downtown Dunedin!

Do you ever get a craving for an expensive tasting gourmet pizza with all the fixings that isn’t expensive? If yes, then WOW, do I have a place to recommend to you.

Pan Y Vino in Downtown Dunedin is a brick oven pizza and wine bar with a Mediterranean influence. Their pizzas are made to order and they have plenty of gluten free and vegan options as well (that makes me happy) ????? All pizzas are one size which makes ordering easy peasy… Choose from the many many toppings that they as well. Check out their FB page HERE. My personal Fav on the menu is the mediterranean style, vegan style, gourmet pizza.

The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable with low lighting and window seating to view the passer-bys on Main Street downtown. It’s location is right downtown, smack in the middle of all that Dunedin, FL has to offer. If you haven’t been, I would suggest stopping in for a wonderful experience and great food!
