Be still my heart.

Writing in Tasty Tampa each week has been a whole heap of fun. I have been eating and drinking my way around the Tampa Bay area, and sharing the delights that I come across along the way. This week in celebration of my tenth post, I decided to treat myself (pat on the back) and head…

Ciccio

Over the course of this last week, I have had several events in my office. All of these events had working lunches that required catering. Choosing just one of them to tell you about has been a hard choice. So, in keeping with the trend of the last couple of weeks, I’m going to give…

Great group for grub.

For this week and next week, I am going to continue to cover additional restaurants that are part of the Ciccio Restaurant Group. These guys really seem to know how to put a good restaurant concept together, and they have a variety of them to offer. Located in a couple of areas around FL, but…

Healthy Nutritious Delicious!

Aside from the indulgent goodies that I share on my blog, I do aim to maintain a healthy eating regime. In order to do this, I will shop for groceries conscientiously, always with a shopping list in hand and meals in mind. However, despite having the fridge and cupboards stocked with healthy meal options, there are…

Sweet Treats.

At my place of work, I have sat on several committees over the years. Over the last couple of years, I have had the pleasure of being part of the Employee Events Committee. Throughout the year we arrange various events and luncheons all, of which aim at keeping the employees spirits up, and morale high. (In…

Tasty Thai.

Thai Sa-Moot is a great family owned restaurant, nestled on Memorial Highway, near to Town and Country. I discovered this place on a day that I was feeling very sick. Full of a stuffy cough and cold, I was in no mood to cook or go out for food. I wanted comfort food of some sorts,…

Heavenly Brunch.

Pinky’s restaurant which is located on Bay to Bay Boulevard, was actually the very first restaurant that I visited after moving to the Tampa area. On the morning after the big move, the majority of my kitchen items were still packed in their boxes, waiting to be extracted and organized into the new kitchen. There was little food…

Latin Love.

Having lived in Miami for twenty plus years, I have had more than my fair share of Latin cuisine. With those years, and taste testing experience, I believe myself to be a pretty good judge of it too. So, on one Saturday afternoon (post rock climbing session), some friends and I were wandering down Central…

Franklin Fun.

If you have been following Tasty Tampa for a while, you will already know that I am a fairly new resident to the Tampa Bay area. I had intermittently worked here some years ago, so prior to my permanent move, I had a good idea of the lay of the land.  This intermittent work was…

Favorite Spot.

Cooper’s Hawk Restaurant and Winery, is my number one, “go-to” spot in Tampa. It is quick to get to and conveniently located for me. For anyone else, it would be well worth the trip to try it out. Coopers describes itself as modern casual dining.  Having a full-service restaurant on one side, a casual bar area at…
