Lunch for 2 at 2 Places in 2 Days

Lunch for Two at Two Places in Two Days and there couldn’t be two more perfect spots then Grind Gastropub and Kona Tiki Bar and Outriggers. Each place unique yet completely #pureflorida

First up was a southern style BBQ lunch with a little Asia thrown in at Kona in Ormond Beach.

Sitting at the bar on what may be the last of the chilly days this season. As the Daytona 500 approached we figured it was a good time to get out before the crowds. My dining partner ordered The Turning Japanese Lettuce Wrap chock full of health and flavor gluten free as well.

We also ordered Sweet Potato fries it sort of tied my dish together with hers in a really good way.

I had the Ribs and Mexican Street Corn. Really flavorful and meaty with plenty of BBQ sauce and nice bark underneath. A bite of the corn was all it took as I devoured the whole thing in seconds.

Kona is a very popular place with the locals and features al fresco dining in an eclectic tiki bar like setting.

Second day we went to Outriggers Tiki Bar and Grille, a beautiful day as we sat at a table overlooking the waterways. Surprisingly I ordered a lemonade a refreshing afternoon drink. Soon after the entire place was packed but not before our waitress let slip, they had fresh IROC Oysters, that for all of you is a locally sourced oyster from the Indian River Oyster Company. These bad boys were fresh, chilled clean and delicious nothing fancy just simplicity. I happily gobbled them down as we ordered some peel and eat shrimp alongside a Jalapeno Burger and a Goat Cheese and Beet Salad with white Balsamic Vinaigrette.

A side of Cole Slaw accompanied my burger this fine day and was crisp and as fresh as it gets.

Outriggers has this sort of hip upscale feeling to it, but everything is local and the place rocks.
