South Florida Food Adventures

We just returned from a few days in South Florida, we have been to this area a few times, especially at this time of year. Visited Miami and Fort Lauderdale so this time we decided to check out West Palm Beach area. It was a fun trip we were blessed with the weather and had some amazing food. Wanted to write a quick post to share some tips in case your ever in the area :-)

I just had to take a snap of the British food section at the Publix grocery store there, I came back with Ribeena, Gravy, biscuits and chocolate he he, so funny to travel to Florida and return with British food. I guess a lot of Brits live in the State.

Cool tea pot :-)

The second day we were there we visited Worth Ave a beautiful and historic street lined with designer stores, its definitely where very wealthy people shop, but the drive down A1A past the mansions and the coast line is fun. For lunch with ate at Cafe Boulud an award winning restaurant and a must visit. The lunch menu is only $20 for a three course meal and you can relax in the beautiful courtyard of the Brazilian court hotel. 

The Brazilian Court

301 Australian Avenue
Palm Beach, FL 

I had beef bourguignon and it was amazing hubby had a wonderful citrus fish dish, Jasmine sampled both!

my dessert was a delightful pumpkin cheesecake, Thanks Barbara from Moveable Feasts for recommending this place, you know the best places :-)

this area is home to fabulous cars!

In the evenings we would get take out and eat at the hotel, one night we found a great Mexican 

The next morning we found the coolest bakery in Lantana, we heard the staff speaking in another language and curious folks that we are just had to ask what it was! - It was Finnish it turns out this area is known as little Finland and the bakery makes from scratch Finnish breads and cakes. Wow we got a loaf of pulla with cinnamon and almond paste and polished it of in one sitting! and returned today for more! 

I even brought a loaf back with me for a friend here who studied in Finland. Its a bit squashed but should taste good all the same!

For Lunch yesterday we went to Clematis Ave another Famous Palm beach street with restaurants and bars and great night life, traveling with a toddler makes this part impossible but not complaining she is adorable. Cabana Nuevo Latino is a fun restaurant featuring food from Latin America. I got the Caribbean curry loaded with vegetables 

Hubby got Picadillo a Cuban classic I made it after returning from Miami :-) last year

Finally while driving back to the airport we drove past this place serving Salvadorian food and being the true foodies we are, we said this is the place lets try something different!

I got the Salvadorian chicken in a tomato sauce with corn tortilla and plantains, it was so tasty I grilled the girl on how to make it so stay tuned for some recipes on Chow and Chatter he he and a great addition for the app update in future!

Hubby got a fish in a lemon sauce this was Jasmines favorite!

Just before catching the flight we took the Fort Lauderdale (we flew from there, cheaper) water taxi a couple of stops to take Jasmine on the boat, if your in the area its a must so beautiful and you can hop on and of all day. Fort Lauderdale is still my favorite South Florida town, I would make it a base and see West Palm and Miami from here. This part of America is blessed with a wide range of great places to eat and I just adore the Central and South American influences in the food. Will miss the food :-(

Thanks for traveling with us, missed you all and reading your blogs, I only had my phone and no computer there but maybe a good thing while on holiday!

Hugs and Have a great weekend ;-)

    I used to have relatives in Fort Lauderdale years ago but haven't been there since I was a young girl. Hubby's parents used to have a condo in Clearwater Beach and then Orlando was always lots of fun too so I've seen so much more of the Gulf side of the state.
