Agave, Lewes, Delaware, Mexican Restaurant, Southern Delaware, Delaware Beaches

Back on July 27, 2009 I started my blog. I have been living in the area for so long that a lot of times people would ask me where to go, where to shop, what restaurants were the best, where to shop and what to cook for dinner.

The above website became my blog. A sort of diary you may say. I write when I feel inspired and other times I just stay quiet. Not for long though lol. AboutMyBeaches is on Facebook as well.

I wrote about Agave on the same day I opened my blog. Agave has expanded but I still enjoy the location at 137 2nd St. in Historic Lewes.

It is still quaint and I hope it stays that way. Just the right amount of noise and a little Latin music in the background.

Now that the new location has opened on Coastal Highway you are able to find seating available.

At the bar we sat where you get to be in the know. Those gigantic Margaritas were being prepared more than a few times. Look at that size.

We had the average size. There is something so good about their Margaritas. People love them. And, not all Margaritas are the same.

There is a martini that it is not on their menu. You know it exists because you have been there so many times. It is an Avocado Martini. I don’t even know how to describe it. The rim is caramelized sugar; the martini is not sweet; it is smooth and does make an impact if you get my drift.

Look how gorgeous and festive it is ? We ordered their traditional guacamole and warm chips. Sorry about the blurred photo. At times you try to move too fast.


Honey Rum Beans are a favorite. And so is the Jalapeno Corn Bread.

I love the Avocado & Mango Salad, topping it with filet. All these are shareables.

Over the years Agave has been a very consistent restaurant. We have had our moments, but who wouldn’t?

TGIF enjoy the weekend. Take time to relax in this Christmas Season. Take a drive and enjoy all the holiday decorations. They are beautiful this year.

L’Angolo Ristorante, South Philly, Italian Cuisine, Review, Philadelphia, PA, Authentic Italian Cuisine, Good Food, Will Travel, The Art of Dining

A couple of years ago I was introduced to L’Angolo Ristorante located at 1415 W Porter St. in South Philly. I totally fell in love with it. Family owned, small, about 15 tables, personal service and very popular.

It is one of those places that when you leave you cannot wait to come back. Some of you may say Oh, in Philly? That’s a trip. It is so worth it. Their telephone is 215-389-4252. It is best to call and make a reservation because it is small.

You enter through the kitchen and that’s when you capture the aroma of the food cooking. It’s awesome.

The restaurant closes on Monday. Check the website for hours of operation.

Please note that it is BYOB.

A week ago the special of Pulpo (octopus), tomatoes, potatoes were immerse in a delicious vinaigrette which had good olive oil, lemon and capers. A dish to share, for sure.

Another starter of eggplant parm. It was also a special that evening. Very nice. I am salivating as I write an remember how something that simple could be that good.

Our dinner was accompanied by an 1858 Cab from Napa.

L’Angolo is so cozy and the friendly service is best.

Branzino is a Mediterranean fish that I thoroughly enjoy. Usually when the restaurants offer it, and have it whole, it is a favorite. At L’Angolo, Sunday they offered a mixed grill of fillet of branzino with shrimp and calamari, all grilled with herbed oil and veggies. Totally recommend it.

The pastas are delicious as well. All homemade.

We did not have dessert. Totally satisfied.

Wolfgang Puck has a quote and he says: Italian food is all about ingredients and it is not fussy and it is not fancy.

Isn’t the truth? So the next time you are in Philly don’t miss this Gem.
