Review: Zoup!

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was Zoup! Fresh Soup Company:

Every now and again a friend will call me to sit down and bend my ear to their tales and troubles. Today was  one of those days where I found myself on the other side of the table while a friend laid out a personal issue. We decided on Zoup! at Stetson Square. It specializes in various soups. They let you taste them before you buy, so you have the chance to try over a dozen different soups. The soups were tasty but not spectacular. It was a pleasant experience for a quick lunch.

I decided to get the lobster bisque and the Chicken Toscana sandwich. The sandwich comes with  roasted red peppers, marinated red onions, provolone cheese & basil mayo on a Ciabatta bun. don't order it if you consider yourself dieting as the website lists the sandwich as having 517 calories.  The sandwich was good. I didn't like the onions, but I rarely do. The ingredients had a good flavor to them on the Ciabatta bread. I felt like it was a little on the expensive side.

The lobster bisque is described on the site as mellow, real-cream soup with lobster, butter & a hint of sherry. It was very creamy and tasty. The man behind the counter told me that it was their best selling soup. I appreciated its flavor. It was creamy and featured a good little chunks of crab. I thought it was delicious and I would definitely try it again.

Overall Experience:
Service:                     3
Ambiance:                 3
Menu:                       3
Food taste/Quality:    3

I give the whole experience 3 out of 5 broken eggs:

The food was good, but not amazing. I would say the soups were better than Panera, but not as good as a non chain soup place I visited not too long ago. I would suggest it for a decent lunch meal when you are not in a hurry and want to try a good variety of soups.

Recipe: Sweet Rice

Today's recipe was a family staple sweet rice,
Most people would call this rice pudding. Its about the same, but we tend to eat it warm, where others may eat it cold. We also consider it to be a useful addition to any meal, be it as a side dish or a breakfast. The recipe is pretty easy, so I suggest you try it for yourself.

Review: Lemon Ricotta Pancakes at Cheesecake Factory

Today's choice off the Breakfast Menu was Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and the French Toast Napoleon from the Cheesecake Factory

Today the wife and I decided to hit up the Cheesecake factory for brunch. We have eaten there once before for breakfast but that was so long ago that I did not have a clear memory of why we had never returned. A friend of ours really likes eating at the establishment and it had been forever since we ventured that way. The restaurant was of course packed to the gills but we discovered the secret of the bar area where, if you can grab a table, you can jump the line and get seated faster.

Review: Mimi's Cafe

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was Mimi's Cafe

It was super hero weekend around these parts. Avengers dropped, free comic day happened and we threw a super hero themed birthday party for my little guy. I was taking the wife to see the Avengers today and my sister and her beau asked to join in. I insisted that we brunch as a pre-show event. I chose Mimi's because it wasn't far from the Mason Theater. I had been to Mimi's for dinner and the food was decent. I thought I would give them a try for breakfast. 
Mimi's is apparently owned by Bob Evans, which you wouldn't know by the ambiance. It appears to be rather upscale, but suffers the fate of many chain restaurants where they put way too many things on the wall. The menu is very bulky with a variety of  dishes. They serve breakfast all day, but you have to specifically ask for a breakfast menu after a certain time. They will usually hand you the lunch or dinner menus after noon.  
The service was interesti…
