APtravelnews-January 11th, Bob and Barb “On The Road Again” in Port St. Lucie, West, Traditions Square- One of the now many, Tin Fish Restaurants has a new owner, Rob Troup.  Rob is keeping with the excellent consistency that has been a hallmark of the Tin Fish ascendancy from one restaurant, to now several restaurants and going into the “full-metal-jacket” of franchising as well.

Over a couple of years now, we have dined at several of the Click-It Hot Restaurants and found the seafoods and fish to be in excellent taste and value. We just arrived home from Traditions Square Click-It Hot and from the shrimp, scallops, cod fish, Calamari (squid) their special spicy cole slaw, and mahi, mahi we are stuffed, but happy (we took home a good amount for tomorrow) campers! We also started off our meal with a solid cup of both corn and shrimp chowder, and clam chowder. Frankly, quite spectacular and I don’t offer that comment lightly! Do we recommend Tin Fish, a rousing “yes!”

Our delightful waitress delivered wonderfully tasty clam and also corn and shrimp chowders. The salad was quite beyond what we expected. It was so good we're going back just for this fine melange!

This salad was a meal in itself. It had everything a gourmet would love!

APtravelnews-January 27th,-Bob and Barb “Stopping To Smell the Roses” in Orlando! We’ve eaten at the Ming Dynasty just down from the Orange Country Convention Center. It is a favorite of ours. 5-years ago we ate at Ming Dynasty and I remembered on this, our recent trip for the ASI Show about the really great eggplant dish they served at that time. So on this recent trip, I was hoping that their consistency was as it should be-spot on! It was!  We had duck and that aforementioned eggplant dish, and I promise if I give them a 10 out of 10 (almost never get that lucky to be able to do this) you can take it to the bank! Check them out on web Ming Dynasty Orlando!
