Chowing down on calzones at Midici Daytona Beach #midicidaytona

Midici-daytona

My husband and I got to meet up with my friend and fellow blogger Bethany (from All Natural Savings) and check out the new menu items at Midici The Neapolitan Pizza Company. They are located at One Daytona. This was my fourth time dining at Midici. The first three times I ordered vegan food (they are very vegan friendly), but this time around I wanted to see how their non-vegan food was, so I set out to order vegetarian options. Low and behold, the first thing that caught my eye was vegan bruschetta!

I couldn't resist ordering that to give it a try. Wow, it was fantastic! I loved the vegan bruschetta. I could go there and order just that as my meal and I'd be super happy.  It's that good! I also had a side salad, which was really good, and I tried their new calzones. The calzones are huge. It's honestly something that I could share with someone (order one calzone and one salad and share it all). I ended up bringing half of it home that I will be eating for lunch today. At Midici you can order things right off the menu, or you can customize anything so that it's made just how you like it. I ordered a custom calzone with regular mozzarella, spinach, mushrooms, onion, and vegan sausage. It's served up with a side of their homemade authentic marinara. It was delicious! 

Our friends order a variety of other foods, including the gluten free pizza and a calzone. Bethany reports that they have the best gluten free pizza she's had. Everything was excellent last night. We had wonderful customer service by Courtney, and the food was delicious! The restaurant also has a nice atmosphere, offering both indoor and outdoor seating.

If you are looking for a delicious calzone or bruschetta you will want to give Midici a try!

Review: Taco Shack New Smyrna Beach

Taco-shack

I've been to Taco Shack in New Smyrna Beach many times, but I realized I've never done a review on here yet. So today is the day! 

We went to Taco Shack last night for dinner. Kids eat free on Wednesday's after 5 pm, so we took advantage of that last night. They offer several kids meals to choose from, including a quesadilla, taco, burrito, etc. They come with rice or chips, cookies, a drink, and an ice pop. Even not on kids eat free night, their kids meals are affordably priced at $2.99. My favorite dish there are the gnarly nachos. They are great! My husband also likes the sunset quesadilla. I also need to try their taco salad (minus the meat), because I saw someone eating it last night and it looks great.

Taco Shack is a small family owned restaurant. You walk up to the window, order your food, take a seat, and they bring it out to you. It's all outdoor seating and the seating is limited. It's a neat place where the food is tasty, reasonably priced, and you always get good customer service.

My only issue with Taco Shack, which makes me cringe every time I'm there, is the over-use of non-reusable resources. Everything is served on styrofoam plates/bowls, there's plastic utensils, and they offer no recycling for all the soda cans. So there's a ton of non-biodegradable plastic being trashed there each day, and just about everyone throws their soda cans in the trash (which take about 80  years to break down, yet are easily recycled). We always take our soda cans and little plastic cups home to recycle, but I'd love, love, love it, if they would take a step to be more eco-friendly, by using corn-based plates/utensils, which are better for the environment when being made and they biodegrade in the landfill, and if they offered a bin for recycling the soda cans. 

My environmental concerns aside, I'm a fan of Taco Shack and so is my family. We go there a couple of times per month and have told many people to check it out! If go, please take your soda can home to recycle! ;)
