Yesterday was the eighth annual Taste of Pinecrest at Pinecrest Gardens. This is an annual event benefiting the five public schools in Pinecrest Florida. My friend Beverly and I went; even though there were several activities going on, we definitely went for the food!
Every Sunday morning from December through April in the parking lot of Pinecrest Gardens the Pinecrest Florida Farmers Market is held. It was there, but it seems it was reduced somewhat to accommodate the guests to the Taste of Pinecrest.
Being experienced foodies, Beverly and I just had to walk the entire event scoping out all the different restaurants and their offerings. Here's what I had: crab cake sliders from Cooper's Bar and Grill, they were very good with just the right amount of seasonings; "tostones rellenos" from Delicias del Mundo, different and tasty, they are our latest restaurant to open in Pinecrest; and then a delicious steak sandwich from The Butcher Shop. Now we were happy!
The turnout was great, it was a gorgeous sunny South Florida day. The children's ride area was full of kids enjoying themselves. At the Banyan Pavilion public schools students were entertaining the attendees and the folks all seemed to be having a good time.
