There are no pictures to accompany this post. However, the meal really didn't look much different than our first trip. Unfortunately though, the situation was significantly more depressing than the first trip. And along with that, I must ask for sincere apologies for not pointing out previously that the rice is not vegetarian. I just found out myself.
The first time I heard of Paxia, I was getting off of I-4 and saw a guy dancing around with a sign saying it was the best Mexican restaurant in Orlando. The next time I heard of Paxia was less than a week later when I was researching the restaurants participating in Eat Local Week sponsored by Slow Food Orlando.
We dined at Infusion Tea tonight even though it wasn't as early as I had planned. Even at 5 and 6 o'clock, there was a nice stream of diners at the restaurant, which is always encouraging. Generally a full restaurant suggests a good restaurant.
This restaurant is consistently good. It has a menu rotation for every season and has a nice selection of teas. It was a tad warm this fall day; so only Gerald selected a warm tea. But everything was good. Paul and I absolutely loved our sandwiches. IF I could only make them like that at home! Surely it can't be that hard!
Paul took me to lunch on Friday to a wonderful restaurant we haven't been to in ages. The set-up is modern and cafe-ish (sometimes with live music or readings) and. . .vegetarian! Vegan items are clearly marked. In Florida, it rarely gets cold enough to enjoy a good cup of HOT tea. Logically, Infusion serves cold meals to offset the heat of the drink. There are many more tea options on the menu than there are food options. The choice of the day was a camomile (non-caffeinated) tea brewed in front of your very eyes for as long as use wish. Three hour-glass timers help you decide the strength of your tea.
