The places we travel to in life has such a huge influence in what we eat and like in life. They make up who we become. We go to new places and experience new things, learn about new cultures. It is fun to try new things to eat what we have never had before. Some we ending up loving and become part of who we are, our experiences and loves. I love traveling and finding a new wonderful recipe each time I make it once back at home and it reminds me of my travels only wanting to expand my travels and knowledge even more.
Travels expand our views many times as well…okay enough on the philosophical pooh~
My all time 2 favorite places to eat while in St Augustine is Cap’s on the Water. This place is right on the water heee heee well on the marsh and it is so lovely to sit out side and enjoy a nice meal. I had 2 great meals there this visit. I started with a great cocktail nice !! Then I had the oysters rockerfellers oh dear me these are so good. Then I had the watermelon salad which that was really good as well. For my main entree I got the grouper manchego with whipped potatoes oven roasted tomatoes in a manchego cream sauce oh goodness this was so sticking good I went back and got the same meal start to finish yum licked the plate!! oh and key lime pie too oh dear me!
No I did not take photos of everything why remember that part about that I had that cocktail heee heee will all went bla bla after that plus we went with family and we visited and enjoyed our dinner. Oh darn I will have to return to photo that heee heee !! I may have one on the Iphone let me see?
The other place I love is O’steen’s Restaurant. This place only takes cash and there is ALWAYS a huge wait no matter the day or the time. They are closed on Sunday and Monday. I will eat here about 5 times each time I visit. This is the truth ask the girls there about the crazy girl from Atlanta. Here I get many things ~ I love the shrimp salad oh dear me on Wednesday and Thursdays only! Then they have the best fried shrimp of any place I have ever been they served with a pink sauce. They have a grilled flounder maybe the best grilled fish I have ever had if Tim cooks it!! Then they have blue plate each day changing so never at a loss for something yummy to eat. The place is small, clean and very reasonable for what you get. xoxox girls love the place see you in October !! They did tell me the list of ingredient in the shrimp salad so guess what I am going to be making here shortly.
This time we did try some new places:
Gas a Full Service Restaurant
George’s Greek Dinner
Oasis Bar and Grill
While all the restaurants are okay none knocking my two favorites off the top of the list. Not sure I would recommend any either. Yes, I would Napoli’s was pretty good! Oh and how could I forget Sunday lunch at Schooner’s ~ Yes we go every Sunday after church. We all loved Rita’s Ice Custard Shop we go there most every evening, cause we can walk up with Maggy and all get a treat. Yep, they give her a dog treat which is ice custard with a dog bone. She loves it eats hers really fast and sits there all sad looking at me while I eat mine? I get mango ice with vanilla custard yummy!!
St Augustine is a lovely place to visit…go there and visit I am sure you will find many fun things to do there. I am sure you can find a great place to eat while visiting too. Let me know which place you like.
