Buonissimo Italia!



 
                                                                      Chicken Bruschetta  



When it comes to having a nice, authentic Italian meal, All Italian Market and Deli is the place to go.  I absolutely love the place!  The ambience is homey and inviting and the service is fantastic.  They have a wide selection of Italian meats, cheeses, pastas, etc. (many of them being imported),  as well as a delectable menu.  My family and I have been there nearly every consecutive weekend since our first visit, whether it being to enjoy a meal together, sip on a cup of cappuccino, or indulge in their sinfully good desserts and gelato.  












All Italian Market and Deli is co-owned by two Italian brothers.  I was able to meet and have a nice conversation with Rocco (picture up above), one of the owners.  Rocco is very friendly and did a great job of accommodating us on our first excursion to the restaurant.




All Italian (amazing meat and cheese platter)




  Della Casa Salad (has the perfect medley of sweet, salt and bitter)



 Manhattan Special (espresso soda)




Penne Alfredo (rich and hearty)

Cappuccino (really hits the spot!)




Divine Tiramisu!

Chewy Boba Company



Summertime is here!  Whoop Whoop, get excited! 


If you live in Florida, summertime is paired up with exhausting heat.  Luckily, I have a spot that has my favorite summertime refreshment…..BOBA!  Boba (also bubble tea) is a Asian style beverage consisting of tapioca balls.  The number of flavors and combinations are endless. 



taro milk tea w/ regular boba

When it comes to obtaining this delightful drink a great place in the Orlando-area is Chewy.  With three current  locations, Chewy serves up tasty boba drinks in a chill (double meaning here haha), artsy atmosphere.
