Exploring charming towns over the weekend is one of my favorite pastimes! This weekend I visited Lakeland, FL, which is conveniently located between Tampa and Orlando. The best part about this short getaway was the culinary experience at Posto 9, a Brazilian gastropub.
Posto 9 recently opened and continues to awe its visitors. The Brazilian gastropub brings an authentic flair to the area and you will certainly consider it a culinary experience. On top of it’s unique and scrumptious menu, the ambiance is eloquent and features paintings from the renowned artist Romero Brito.
Chicken and waffle – This is not the usual chicken & waffle, it is actually made with Brazilian authentic “pao de queijo” (cheese bread) and Bahia spiced fried chicken. The red sauce is a guava ketchup & bacon salt. Yum, this was my favorite!
The croque madame; ham and cheese sandwich topped with béchamel sauce, served with a gratin of Manchego and white cheddar cheese & a sunny side up egg
