APtravelnews-April 19, St Lucie West, FL.– Barb and I love really good Thai foods. We really like excellent, freshly made California Roll and cooked shrimp roll. Pad Tai noodles with scallions and eggs, either shrimp, beef or chicken-I travel far for those too! Good is a very relative word, is it just good so you can safely eat it, is it good because it’s tasty, is it good to look at?
Well, if it’s all good as described above, then it’s excellent! Spice-Sushi is excellent and new owners and managers would have it no other way. Patti, the past owner left for Chicago. She was homesick for her family there. Partners; Rachnee and Montree took over the location and added sushi to the Thai menu. Soon there will be ceviche too. Wat, the sushi specialist has 8-years’ experience creating all types of rolls in Miami. They offer take-out and delivery, and are open all week and weekend. 772-873-9599. They are located on Peacock Blvd. next door to a fine Mexican restaurant right near the Post Office.
We had Pad Thai today, along with a fabulous crab avocado salad. We also tried a Komango Roll that had cooked shrimp and tasty sesame rice. We also tasted from a sushi, sashimi that came with salmon and a small California Roll. The fish in white coconut sauce seasoned with a green chili curry. Was excellent too! For dessert we had a hot banana and vanilla ice cream dish. All in all, a fabulous meal. But, only problem was we only have one stomach and so we had to take home a Thai-Thai bag for tomorrows lunch or dinner.
Aptravelnews.com—April 13-PSL, FL.— Innovative Cape May birder and photographer Richard Crossley captures every detail of North America’s diurnal raptors with gorgeous double-page vistas and multiple plates for each species. Raptors experts Brian Sullivan and Jerry Liguori, contributed extensive, authoritative species accounts to round out this incredible and beautiful and quite complete book that is now available. Ever wonder what that gorgeous bird flying past you at mach speed was? As a gardener and farmer for fun in TN. and Florida there have been many times when a red-tailed hawk or a so-called chicken-hawk would attack one of my ducks or chickens. Or these birds would just fly over sometimes land and more often keep on going for their perceived safety. Raptors have always fascinated me as top of the bird chain of perdators and their regal and speedy nature. So now I have my Crossley ID Guide and will keep it close when traveling or working at the farm.
The quality book is cloth Flexibound has 304 informative pages full of 101 color plates and 34 color maps.The book costs $29.95 (a bargain) and is truly worth every penny if you want the real thing in authoritative raptor identification. My grand children will use it with me when they visit the wilds of TN. and hit the birding trail with grandpa.
It’s published by Princeton University Press and ask your bookstore to get if for you if you don’t see it in stock already! After really going over the plates and pages, this book is a flying away winner!
The owners are very grounded in family tradition. From father Heriberto to Alma his wife and even 3-year old Leo; the Martinez family which also included his daughter are a team!
The food was very good. Here’s what we had: We started with hot tortilla chips and not too spicy salsa-a couple of glasses of pineapple juice for our drinks (we find this goes great with Mexican foods) we shared an EL Toro combo steak and chicken Fajita steaming hot with onions and red and green peppers. The rice, beans and the other goodies such as tortillas were all excellent. The big thing for us-none of it was greasy!
We also tried a taco salad with shredded beef-very wonderful all on its own. We finished with our favorite dessert Flan. It came with whipped cream and we only needed one of these to share which was totally enough as it was so good and also so rich and plenty.
Senor Martinez has a partner and the El Toro also has cousins in Melbourne, Cape Canaveral besides the Stuart location. The Stuart location is at 1602 SE. Federal Hwy and their number is 772-287-8161
