Yesterday, I really wanted to check out a huge Adidas tent sale that was going on by Florida Mall. I was starving at noon after mowing the lawn, so hubs and I decided we would drive down to the Florida Mall area and find a place to eat before we hit up the sale. Usually when we have no idea where we are going when we leave the house, we get frustrated and end up at Wendys. We got lucky this time and stumbled upon Saffran.
Saffran is located off Sand Lake Road (for the Orlando peeps) and right across from Ulta (for the ladies). I didn’t know what half the stuff on the menu was but we decided to stay because we are suckers for new places.
The place is kind of like Crispers where you place your order at the counter, they give you a number to place on the table, and the food is brought out to you.
Saffran’s menu says they were voted #1 in Iceland. (?!) Also, they use no white sugar or white flour in any of their food.
Hubs and I placed our order and picked our table.
A few minutes later, the girl that took our order came over and asked if we had already eaten and were just hanging out. Um. You JUST took our order. Apparently we are that forgettable. A little while later, she brought us another table’s food.
(That’s our table number. The joke worked better in my mind.)
Hubs and I both had the Kabob Burger which was a mixture of beef and lamb and it was served on two mini-pitas instead of a bun.
This burger was ahh-maz-ing. We both loved it. It was a little on the salty side for me but even too salty it was amazing and so juicy.
The chef came out and asked how we liked it. He even mentioned that he didn’t know if the mixture would be too salty or not since it was a fresh mixture he made for the day. He was really welcoming and friendly and made up for the food taking longer than we expected to come out. He even brought us dessert on the house.
The dessert was chocolate mousse. It was really rich and tasty and usually I’m not a big fan of mousse. Again, it was made without sugar and I think the chef told us it was under 100 calories? I don’t know if I heard him right, because it didn’t taste under 100 calories. It tasted like all the fat angels in heaven got together and made their favorite dessert.
Overall, we loved the place and want to take some friends there next time. 🙂
After lunch, we checked out the Adidas tent sale. It was like shopping at Ross if Ross wasn’t air conditioned, it was packed with three times the annoying people, and all the clothes were thrown in big boxes that you had to search through.
I ended up getting several pairs of capri workout pants for my cardio class so I’m not flashing people while doing planks. All the shoes were $20, shorts and pants were $10, and shirts were $8, so we got some really good deals. Hubs thought it was interesting that Adidas can sell all this stuff really cheap for 4 days and then bend us over with their prices the other 360 days of the year. Well played, Adidas. Well played.
