greenbar & Kitchen, Fort Lauderdale

I’ve driven this strip of Fort Lauderdale going towards A1A hundreds of times and didn’t realize that back inside one of the little strip malls, was a great Plant-based restaurant! I’ve never even heard of them till this past week!

They have this adorable little patio area that is draped in plants and greenery and kind of takes you out of feeling like you’re in the city.  Inside the restaurant it’s very hip and modern and fresh-feeling.  If you’re looking for a great place for just grabbing some lunch or actually want to take someone out for a casual date-night, it’s the place to go (hint hint-go take someone out this weekend).

I ordered the avocado toast because someone had recommended it somewhere and I didn’t want anything too heavy that night.  Four half-slices of toast with tons of avocado and yumminess piled on top.  My son ordered the nuggets of which he ate three and said he didn’t want anymore- no worries! Mommy saved room for that.  He’s a picky eater and has a hard time trying new things.   Literally, we eat three main items at home.  The nuggets weren’t my favorite but they were the typical vegetarian nugget- I expected the flavor, though it did have an interesting spice thrown in there.

He did however, devour that chocolate cupcake you see below and mommy had to slyly take a bite while he wasn’t looking.  Thank goodness they were offering tons of cupcake samples that night.

On top of the wonderful food options, we were able to listen to a little info session on locally grown foods.  Check them out if you want to learn more about growing your own farm here locally or if you’d like to purchase some of their veggies and plants (just note that growing season in Florida for their veggies is coming to an end for them so now is the time to go before it’s over).  They also sell their own coconut milk.

A great evening all around, so glad I could use this opportunity to check out a new place.  Please let us know if you’ve ever visited and what you had when you were there- inquiring minds want to know what else is good!

Palace Indian Food

by jem614

I had a complete breakdown this weekend.  There was my tired, crying baby in the car and I was trying to put the stroller in the trunk to no avail.  I finally threw it into the front seat in complete frustration.  This was after my son had thrown food on the floor and tried taking everything off the table at the restaurant where he and I “tried” to dine.  Thankfully, those wonderfully friendly guys that worked at the Palace in Davie, were super nice.  They came by several times just to say hi to my son and didn’t sneer at me when I only ordered chai and samosas.  We eventually made it home but I wish I had more time to try some of their other menu items!

The samosas were really tasty and filled with more than just potato.  The chai was good but it didn’t have any sugar in it and there was no sugar on the table.  I’m sure they would have been accommodating but with my son, you have to eat like you’re at a sprint so I just stuffed everything down and left as soon as I could to avoid complete chaos at the table.

Be sure to check them out next time you’re in Davie, hopefully you have more time to enjoy their cuisine than I did!
