Yep its time once again to pick the best Chinese restaurant in America. Actually since this is the 5th year and the contest starts in February and ends with an announcement the following January there doesn’t seem to be much time that we’re NOT picking the Top 100 Chinese Restaurants. But no matter everyone loves a contest, especially one that serves everyone’s self-interests. Restaurant owners get to remind us of who and where they are, we get to see what other people think of them and maybe just maybe …

I was curious if being familiar with the keys you might know about a place we got stuffed cuban bread from when I was very young…maybe about 1974-1976? It was filled with some kind of a ground beef mixture that was out of this world, the place was very small and had maybe two booths. I wish I had the name of it. I have looked for recipes, tried to recreate it myself in vain, any pointers?
Hi Francie,
I’ve not spent a lot of time in the Keys (Cedar Key is …

This was mostly a really boring driving day, once again on the dreaded I-75. We got a few chores done before leaving town for our 13 hour drive home and I doubt I would have even mentioned today if the nicest thing hadn’t happened.
We ran out of gas (us, not the car) in Georgia between Atlanta and Marietta, at exit 261 (Delk Rd) to be exact. We found a motel and by the time we got settled it was just after 10pm which without a lot of hunting around …

Today we’re back in Old Town and its our last full day before heading back home. Mostly we ran errands and got the property mowed but we left time to try two local eateries that had been on our list since we got into town.
The first was the Homestead Restaurant, a locally owned spot in Fanning Springs that wasn’t here the last time I was in town. We drove past this place a dozen times and it was always packed with locals. We already had our dinner planned so …

After a few days of visiting family in Kissimmee and eating great Cuban food in Tampa we headed back towards Old Town, FL to spend a few more days working on our property before heading back to our present day home in the hills of Can-Tuc-kee. On the way out of town we stopped at La Segunda yet again for a stock of bread to take back home and a hot loaf to enjoy on the way out of town.
This time our route took us up the west cost …

La Segunda Central Bakery
There’s nothing quite like visiting your home town after being away for awhile. In my case I hadn’t been back to Tampa in 12 years. Its always amazing how many things have changed yet how so many others remain the same. We visited the old neighborhood and knocked on the door of an old friend I hadn’t seen in 30 years. Another really great day.
One thing we haven’t really talked about is how much we Floridians love to eat. The sheer number of locally owned ‘one …

The Best Day Ever!
Well at least one of them. This morning we got up and drove the 150 miles or so from Old Town to Kissimmee, FL which is just south of Orlando and no this isn’t going to be about a day at Disney. As far as that goes I spent most of my life in the Tampa/Orlando area and we locals know to stay as far away from that madness as possible. Instead we came to Kissimmee to spend a day with my aunt, uncle and cousins …

Today we wanted to take advantage of our location and head over to Cedar Key, FL for lunch. Located on the West coast Cedar Key is a small island town of about 800 residents. Due to its geography (no interstates or big cities for miles and miles) it remains largely untouched by corporate commercialism. No fast food and no restaurant chains, in fact rarely do you see a recognizable business name at all. But still Cedar Key is a tourist town, just not for those looking for the glitz …

Today we reached our rental property in Old Town, FL which was essentially abandoned by the tenant. We’ve got some great friends in Old Town who have been looking after our interests and today we spent the day connecting with everyone and getting the utilities transferred et al. By the time dinner time came around we were starved and really looking forward to a meal at BBQ Bill’s in Chiefland, FL just down the road a piece. I don’t recall exactly when they opened (mid 90’s?) but over …

Road Trip! Sounds great right? I’d love to tell you that some megacorp was sponsoring an insightful journey into the American heartland and back roads in an amazing culinary adventure (you know, like our hero Alton Brown does) but that would be about as far from the truth as is possible. Instead we’re taking a trip 800 miles from northern KY to my home state of FL to check out the condition of our rental property in rural Old Town that was abruptly and mysteriously vacated by the last …
