Report on Food in Cuba (non-resort)

the reason the food is bland is becouse spices are at a premium...they do the best with what they have.. US GOVERNMENT POLICY doesn't help this situation.......PLEASE NO GOLDEN ARCHES ALLOWED

Sosua and Cabarete Dominican Republic

we just returned.....casa 21 (vienteuno), Bliss, restaurant Orchidee, cafe cubano.....all good
not so good...La Finca........have a blast

still looking for a good place to eat in saint augustine

I second that Panifico is definitely THE BEST......I live in south Sarasota so I often go to Pontillios on Superior in Gulf Gate....best in this area

Tall order: 1st time ever in USA, what do I HAVE to taste?

Doc Fords in sanibel was the best place we ate there last year oct.....and we tried about 6 other places
too bad Nov. is too early for plant city strawberrys
Pine Island close to Sanibel has wonderful tropical fruit...like mangos but nov might be too late
Sanibel is wonderful....enjoy

Sarasota area-Good local restaurants?

gotta add El Toro Bravo...for mexican on Stickney point near where it becomes Clark...way way better than others mentioned above......For Italian...Bologna Cafe or Ferraris or even Valentinos are my current favs.......We recently started going to Manhattan Bar and grill...in the former location of the XXX movie where Pee Wee Herman was busted..and it great for hamburgers
Simons on 41 near Independence is the best for breakfast and lunch

Suggestions Needed for Road Trip FL

Sarasota...Italian...Bologna Cafe, Ferraris, Valentinos on Clark rd
Breakfast...Millies on Clark...any Peaches restaurant
Fish...Casey Key Fish House....or further south near 41 and River road
Myaka River Oyster Bar

Manhattan Bar and Grill friendly sports bar with great hamburgers
Mexican....El Toro Bravo on Clark,,,,,excellent

All these are reasonably priced...for a splurge try Morels or Rosebuds in osprey

NE Iowa

went to sabor latino in decorah today it was great!
Also had lunch in Lansing at a place right on the Mississippi...Riverview I think it was fine for sandwiches etc.

MSP to Prairie Du Chien, WI

Simply is open for dinner...we had a great soup and salad ...best meal without heavy meat so far on this trip...Twisted chicken is closed for the next month or so...so we missed that...they recommended Spring Lake...but we didn't make it that far

NE Iowa

gotta say to avoid the sportsman in oelwein...terrible atmosphere and food was just ok

Trip from Chicago to Iowa City - pork tenderloin sandwiches

Joensy's is closed ...maybe for renovations??

NE Iowa

Joensy's in Solon is closed...went by yesterday

NE Iowa

After a long drive and a craving for italian food...after visiting a Frank Lloyd Wright signature house... Cedar Rock...we drove to Oelwein on your recomendation...big mistake...ate at the Big Italian place south of town...Sportsman pub...is the name...I should have followed my instinct and not passed the front door...ended up with a Steak...meat again in Iowa...would have been better with a chain...more atmosphere if you can believe that.....Is there a decent salad in this state?..the salad bar at this place was under a heat lamp...oh my!
