Ninja Thai Asian Fusion Restaurant A Prima Vista Blvd. Delicious Food Spot

American Press travel News-Nov. 30th, Port St Lucie, FL.–Bob and Barb “Stopping to Smell the Deliciousness of Exotica Foods” This time at Ninja Thai Fusion Restaurant, a Prima Vista Blvd. delicious food spot!

When you leave our front entrance here at Kings Isle, make a left and head down over the bridge to Prima Vista and go towards US.1 Just before the turn look left and there is this great Asian Fusion Restaurant in that small shopping center. Promise, this Ninja Thai Asian Fusion spot is worth a luncheon or dinner stop. Barb and I really enjoyed our meals here. We jumped all over our mouth watering appetizers. The home made pot stickers made with pork, ginger, white onion and cabbage. Stuffed into pasta wrapper and dipped in ginger sauce it was a double WOW! The spring rolls were obviously home-made great, and then we dove into Pad Thai seafood. Shrimp, lobster and scallops adorned a wonderfully peanut flavored stir fried rice noodles. The green onion and bean sprouts blended with egg made this meal special, indeed. A slice of lime and a tall, green tasty Thai iced tea, had us spoiled. There are so many incredible dishes, that we’d like you to explore this great place and its offerings for yourself, and don’t forget the fried ice cream and Thai donuts, too! 899 E. Prima Vista Blvd. (772) 777-4377

Rosati’s Pizza and Mission Barbeque Just Great For Our FL. Neighborhood

 American Press Travel News–December 18th, Port St Lucie, FL. Bob and Barb “On the Road Again”–We often take for granted how many businesses are in walking distance to the front gate of our Florida home. Upon our return from an extended time at our TN farm,  we marveled at how many new food spots opened since we had left last April. Here’s just two of several new ones we just tried:
When Rosati’s opened last July, they were expanding their pizza business from Wisconsin to Florida, from their corporate headquarters in Chicago, into Port St Lucie, West.  They are a great spot to get great hand-thrown dough pizzas delivered, or that can be picked up anytime day or night.
The business offers great salads, pasta and pizza as carry out, but there is some seating inside and outside as well. My favorite pizza is adorned with real garlic, olives and mushrooms, on a thin-crust with some crispy bubbles from the bake. When I see round mounds of dough ready to be rolled out, spun and thrown, I know the place is keeping it “real.”
If you just crave a slice and a soda, its $5-bucks. We tried both a Chicago style thick crust cheese and delicious Italian chunky pizza sauce. Both the thin and the thick variety were quite good-we’ll go back or call for more next week. Rosati’s motto is “Keeping It Real Since 1964.” They also provide catering services and they are located just across from our gate the opposite end of Dunkin Donuts. 772-340-0999.

Mission Barbeque, on our side of Port St Lucie Blvd., on restaurant row, is a unique smoked-meat BBQ. Every day at 12-PM all employees and guests stand, hold their hands over their hearts and sing the National Anthem. Barb and I enjoyed seeing youngsters joining in with their parents and the employee’s seemed quite proud of their work place and support of our troops and our great nation. Just outside, there is a large Army truck, outdoor seating and plenty of parking. They make their 10-sauces daily and we enjoyed the smoked brisket, ribs, chicken and turkey, as well as their tasty side dishes, too. Get on line, pick your favorites, take a cup for soft drinks and be prepared to not go home hungry. We liked the place. and as we noticed at the lunchtime filled tables, so do many others in Port St Lucie. Stop in for a sample taste if you like. Located in Port St Lucie, West on St. Lucie West Blvd, just down from a Publics.    

Treasure Coast of FL. Hokkaido Japanese Steak & Seafood House

 

November 15th– Port St Lucie, FL.-Bob and Barb at Hokkaido Japanese Steak & Seafood House-a favorite for their luncheon Bento Boxes filled with California Roll, sticky rice, tempura veggies, scallops, steak, shrimp or my personal favorite salmon prepared grilled and no fishy taste perfect!
We just had an Hibachi experience that was unprecedented! Terrific fun at the counter as Subi the grill Cook/Chef did his magic with lobster, shrimp, beef and scallops (Barb and I had lobster and tender steak) from the mixed fresh veggies to the squirted Saki into the mouth by Subi and he flipping little hunks of veggies at peoples mouths ala throwing a fish to a seal, slapping the grill and flipping his spatula and knife everyone sat and enjoyed a spectacle of dining circus land. The filet mignon chunks were done medium just as I like it and we smiled as much as we chewed leaving an excellent dining experience for a change of pace dinner.
You can have lunch or regular dinner too. Its not just a Hibachi restaurant and the bar is stocked with everything you’d expect from a first-rate restaurant bar. I enjoy hot Saki rice wine and Barb enjoys a Zinfandel at least twice a week. We get this and so much more at Hokkaido!
Located 1960 N.W. Courtyard Circle in Port St Lucie, FL

Tennessee Historical Sojourn

American Press Travel News–August 10th, 2018–Bob and Barb on the Road Again, this time in Morristown, TN.–Interesting time in an interesting part of TN. Barb and I love historical museums and places that exude memorable places. There is so much known, but far more unknown about the Civil War period in America. Seems many eople just cannot get enough of it! Here we were in Morristown, TN. great places to dine, neat antique shops, original homes of famous folk such as Davy Crockett and Civil War Generals to name a few. Bet you didn’t know that people before the 1900’s were smaller than folks of today. To get on a horse they needed help, voila, step-ups of stone for mounting a horse, uniforms any uniforms were hand stitched and provided by special tailors and seamstresses. Hat makers too were in demand. Machines were few hands were many.  Weapons of the past were also hand crafted, heavy and slow to reload, but today they are magnificent works of mostly handcrafted works of highly sought after art. Of course, you gotta eat when on assignment, and Morristown has great “eats.”  Crabcakes and Pineapple Steaks, huh?

More to come! There is so much to cover.

Arts and drama. These folks make it happen!
