Shopping at any mall can be exhausting and stressful. This week hubby and I dragged ourselves out of Penney's (mission accomplished) and found ourselves too hungry to look for a restaurant. Luckily there are some tasty options at the Brandon Westfield Mall so for the first time we tried Bahama Breeze. It's located in the spot previously held by Sin Equal and we'd always enjoyed going there and wondered why they left.
As it turns out we were in for a treat. Ever diet conscious, I ordered a turkey burger (sans bun) and a side of Cuban black bean soup. I have to say it was THE most delicious turkey burger I'd ever had. It was moist and flavorful, topped with caramelized onions, guacamole, tomato and arugula. And the soup was heavenly, rich flavor with just the right amount of seasonings (I know a little something about black beans as its one of my few specialties). Hubby had the Ropa Vieja (Old Clothes) Sandwich ....I've never quite understood that moniker..... served on Cuban bread and served with a side of yellow rice and black beans. He was very pleased with it.
Our waitress Tiffany was sharp, friendly, very good at her job and the whole experience was so pleasant we're sure to go back again soon - even if we don't have any shopping to do.
