Crave Food Truck – Fresh, Healthy and Waterfront!

St Augustine Food truck Crave

I happened upon another St. Augustine hidden gem last week... CRAVE Food Truck! They buy all their veggies at local farmers markets, whip up smoothies, build-your-own-salads, sandwiches and wraps to order and they have picnic tables on the water. locally grown food + waterfront views = awesome food truck! I'm newly gluten-free and while CRAVE doesn't offer gluten free bread for sandwiches (too crumbly), they do make a gorgeous, filling salad! I topped my local greens with shredded carrots, red peppers, candied nuts, pumpkin seeds, goat cheese, red cabbage... as my … [Read more...]

Surprise #1: I actually like Kimchi. The only thing I knew of kimchi … [Read more...]

Mellow Mushroom St Augustine

St Augustine Mellow Mushroom

Whether you're in Asheville, North Carolina or Portland, Oregon or St. Augustine, Mellow Mushroom somehow manages to keep the feel of a "local place." I've nibbled & noshed pizzas across the globe but what I found in St. Augustine really did rock my world! Flavor and experience is what dinner out is all about to me. The tasty Spinach Artichoke Dip arrived before the girls even finished their placemats! No one had time time to whine, "Moooom, I'm huuuuungry!" That's great service! My hubby, on the other hand, judges a restaurant by its beer selection. Mellow … [Read more...]
