Favorite Florida Food

One of the best things about Florida is the abundance of fresh seafood available. As I mentioned earlier, we sampled shrimp every which way and it was all delicious. One night we went to Clark's Fish Camp on the river to eat. The atmosphere was downright rustic to say the least, but the food out of this world.

Seating at the outside bar on the dock while you wait for a table.

Watching the boaters and fishermen coming and going helped to pass the time while we waited. In fact, I was enjoying myself so much, I was in no hurry to get a table. We were seated on the outside patio so we could continue to enjoy the beauty of the river.  I ate Coconut Shrimp and Barbequed Shrimp with good old sweet tea.

Another favorite place was called Barbara Jean's. It was just up the road from where we were staying and we liked it so much we visited twice! This dessert is to die for, Key Lime Tart made at the resturant with fresh ingredients. Others favored the Chocolate Stuff, which was yummy as well. 

Can you tell the Chocolate Stuff was David's favorite?

We loved the food so much, we had our picture made in front of the building. If you ever have an opportunity to eat at Barbara Jean's, don't pass it by. Their crab cakes are the best and are shipped all over the country. You can order the Chocolate Stuff on line as well...........I haven't told David that yet~
