In the course of our weeklong stay in FL for our summer vacation, we ate at Stinky's three times for lunch. My fried oyster and salad dish was sublime -oysters were large and perfectly battered and fried, the salad was unlike I have ever had. Apparently, the chef picks out the leaves and veggies from a friend who cultivates his organic farm nearby. The freshly picked leaves were unusual, not the typical romaine or spring sort. It also included grilled potatoes and pea-sized cucumbers among other exquisite veggies. The salad was certainly original and incredibly tasty and filling.
When we came the second time and I ordered the same salad with glowing comments, the server brought me close to double the size of salad that I got the first time. They have an equally appetizing kids menu with the usual assortments of mac and cheese and chicken tenders of their similarly tasty homemade touch. I agree with the landlady of our condo who has lived in the area for many years that this is indeed the best seafood place in the Destin, FL area. Note that Sunday brunch with its selective menu has live music and gets filled up with a crowd quickly.
If your family likes window shopping and eating, you should definitely stroll the streets of Old Town Temecula where you'll find a variety of tasty eateries, souvenir shops, antique stores, and other retail establishments.
It can get hot here, so I recommend visiting in the morning or afternoon. Don't miss eating at E.A.T.!
Your littles will just think of this as another retail store as they most likely won't enjoy sampling olive oils. I thought it was super fun to be able to taste the variety of oils, made just a few miles away at a local olive oil vineyard.
The oils aren't cheap, but it is fun to sample them and I brought home a tasty dipping sauce for breads, pastas, and veggies.
