This morning I ran around to a few offices before heading home to finish up some paperwork and make some lunch. For lunch, I wanted to come up with something original. But I ended up just making a version of my Pesto, Egg Breakfast. But, it was delicious.
|2 Slices Marble Rye Bread||1 Hard Boiled Egg, Sliced|
|1 Teaspoon Pesto||1/4 Cup Cherry Tomatoes, Halved|
|1 Tablespoon Chives||1 Slice American Cheese|
There’s really no need for directions to this one. I toasted the bread pretty good and melted the cheese on top. I would recommend lightly toasting the bread because the texture would work a bit better with the sandwich.
It was delicious.
The rest of the afternoon I spent cleaning and finishing up some projects.
When dinner rolled around, Brent and I met up with his parents to head to our favorite resturant in Orlando. Lee and Rick’s Oyster Bar. I have brought everyone that comes to visit Florida to this place and they have all loved it.
It is an Oyster Bar, obviously, and you order the oysters by the bucket, raw or steamed. I usually get them steamed. You waitor pulls out the bucket and just starts shucking them in front of you. She places them on the bar for you to slurp down. YUMM.
The oysters are really the best I have ever had. They don’t have sand or that sour taste that you can get every once in a while that just ruins the whole experience. A bucket is about 3 dozen and it’s only 15 bucks! Can’t beat that!
They are so good. You have the option of topping it with lemon juice, hot sauce, cocktail sauce or some horse radish. I’m sure if there is something else you like on these slimy guys, they would help you out. If you have a problem with the texture, try it with a saltine.
For an appetizer, we got the calamari…this time.
They have a bunch of other options as well. Crab legs, crawfish, calamari, clams, mussels and a ton more. They also have a solid selection of beer. I do have to say, it is a unique place to eat. Just don’t wear your best clothes. Chances are you will walk out with a bit of a fish smell tagging along 🙂
It’s so much fun and just a little dive bar. If you are in town, I would say this is a local spot that tourists wouldn’t really have to opportunity to swing by.
Give it a go! You won’t be disappointed! It’s right up the street from Universal!!
What’s your favorite resturant?? Is is a dive bar or a large chain?? What makes it your favorite spot??
I love this oyster bar because it is a dive bar. The food is fantastic and it really is an experience when you walk in. I am a happy little clam when I walk out of there 🙂
