Local Eats: Greek City Cafe

Celebrating unique local restaurants!

While Devil’s Mistress #2 is away in Greece eating the delicious food, I am stuck behind, much to my dismay, in the old United States. But, to help tide me over we at least have some good international fare in the neighborhood. And one of those places is the Greek City Cafe in Spring Hill, Florida. It’s not a big place, nor a particularly fancy place, but it will help satisfy the Greek food cravings you have. (Though it is not, unfortunately, a replacement for the real thing.)

Local Eats: Taco Bus

Celebrating unique local restaurants!

When I first had Taco Bus I was told it didn’t really count, that it didn’t measure up to the real thing. Which is saying something because my first time wasn’t all too bad. I had been at a friends wedding where they catered, pulled up in a short, bright yellow bus. Yes, they take their name seriously! And that was two years ago!

So after picking up another friend from the airport, I finally got to experience the REAL deal after hearing so much about it. And I wasn’t disappointed. After I pulled in, I was pleased to see not one, but two buses making up a charming little courtyard. Most of the seating is outside, but they did also have an indoor dining room if the weather is not so agreeable, and let’s face it, in Florida thunderstorms are a daily summer afternoon occurrence. Luckily for us, the sun was just peeking out from behind the remnants of one such storm and we got to enjoy the humid heat while Latino music filled the air.

Local Eats: Kazu’s

Celebrating unique local restaurants!

Looking for the best Sushi in the Hudson area? Then check out Kazu’s! A small restaurant tucked away in a rather barren strip mall (don’t let that scare you away!) Kazu’s has a rather large following in the area, and for good reason. According to their website, the restaurant was opened in 2003 by Kazunobu Miyazato and his wife. With 30 years of being a sushi chef under his belt, it definitely shows, yum! And the prices are very reasonable too. So if you are ever in the area and have a hankering for delicious sushi, check out Kazu’s! Your stomach, and your wallet, will thank you!

My Favorite Food Holes

My Favorite Food Holes

One of the things I like most about traveling is stuffing my face with the local cuisine. These are some of my favorite places:

New Orleans

I can’t say enough good things about the food in New Orleans. One of my favorite, if not top places to fill my food hole. One of the best places to find Creole and Cajun cooking, the perfect blend of heat and spice, but not too overpowering to the point you are crying or can’t taste the rest of your food. Shrimp and grits: yes. Etouffee: check. Gumbo: yes please! If that’s not your thing— I get it I guess, but truly you are missing out!— New Orleans also serves up a diverse seafood menu as well. However, the small crustacean, crayfish, reigns supreme. They’re everywhere and for good reason. They are delicious. Though I wasn’t brave enough to eat the whole thing like most people told me to. And if you have as big a sweet tooth as me, then New Orleans has you covered there as well. Beignets will surely make you gain a few pounds. Why? Because you will be eating so many of them they are so good. The Famous Café du Monde is open 24 hours a day so you can eat them for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner. Also pralines are so ubiquitous they gave them away at my hotel.
