Review: Filo Greek in Port Orange


Today, my husband and I stopped in to try the new restaurant on Dunlawton called Filo Greek. It's located at 1655 Dunlawton #104 (where Daily Grind Burgers used to be). They recently opened and I saw that they had falafel, so I was ready to give it a try.

The restaurant offers numerous tables inside, plus there is some outside tables you may be able to sit at. I don't know if they are for a specific food establishment along there or if they are just shared space and everyone can use them (which is what it seems like to me). You place your order and go along the line to tell them what you want on it. 

My husband and I both wanted the falafel pita, but we put different items on it (he loves olives, for starters, while I hate them). I was surprised to see that the falafel was frozen from a commercial bag. I couldn't read the brand that they were, but I was a little surprised they didn't make the falafel fresh in house. We both loaded up our pitas with veggies and sauces and ordered some fries on the side.

The falafel pita is $8 and the fries are $3. There's no wait for the food, you have it ready when you walk away from the counter.

We both liked the pita and we would go back and order it again. I think having a place that has falafel on Dunlawton is a nice break from the many chicken and burrito restaurants. It's something different. We used to like to grab the falafel pita once in a while at the Pita Pit when it used to be in the Pavilion, so it will be nice to have the option around again.

Kale Cafe Bottled Salad Dressing


My friends at Kale Cafe have taken the tasty salad dressing that they use in the restaurant and have bottled it!

You can now pick up bottles of their vegan salad dressing at the restaurant, which located at 116 N Beach Street in Daytona Beach. They are also working to get it into area stores, so soon you may be able to pick it up at a store near you. If you have a store and would like to carry it, be sure to reach out to them for the details.

The dressing is vegan and can be used on salads, as well as for marinades. In the restaurant they use it on their famous kale salad (which you have to try if you haven't already). I served it up on a greens salad last night with a spaghetti dinner. Everyone liked it, but my husband loved it.

I've known the owners of Kale Cafe, Camille and Omar, since before they had their restaurant. They are great people who have a big family filled with sweet kids. Their dressing is named after their youngest son, Judah, because he loves to drink the dressing. It's that good! 

If you are looking for a great vegan salad dressing be sure to give Kale Cafe's Judah's salad dressing and marinade a try. And while you are visiting Kale Cafe, you may want to try one of their dishes. I love their seitan Philly and the veggie burger (among other dishes). In fact, my son says they have the best veggie burger anywhere! Every Tuesday, they offer their veggie burgers for only $5 each.
