Fu Dog, Dos Vatos, Prati Italia

May started with an Italian feast at Tony D’s New York Pizza. I haven’t been to this Baymeadows place for many years. I ate Greek salad and pizza with bacon and artichokes, and my husband ate chicken Caesar salad and fried mozzarella sticks.

After moving to Riverside, I enjoyed an after-work solo dinner with savory green curry and crispy cod on rice at Foo Dog Curry Traders. Judging by the constant flow of takeaway orders, it’s safe to say that this is the best place in the area. Sweet goes best with savory, so I went to the new San Marco Dreamette (in the old Bold Bean Coffee premises) for a chocolate-vanilla swirl cone.

Stopping in nearby Avondale, I was delighted to see a few new Mediterranean-style Falafel x Bar menu items – I tried the shawarma salad and made the required ($3) trip to the toppings bar to buy feta crumbs, fried eggplant, cucumber, pickled vegetables, tahini and chickpea salad.
