Hey gang

It's time for my annual pilgrimage to PSL. You guys were great last year. This year, I've been following you closely and have compiled the following list...please let me know what you think...

Me: Foodie. But likes "food for the people." The first choice should make that clear! I am keen to get some Japanese recommendations, as well as Cuban and Vietnamese. Also, most specifically, I'm flying into Orlando, so a dim sum recommendation in Orlando would be GREAT. (I think I know what you'l recommend, but I just want to double-check.)

OK--so here's what I have on my to-do list...
Fredgies Hot Dog wagon in the parking lot of the Snook Nook Bait and Tackle Shop in Jensen Beach

Prawnbroker in Fort Meyers for seafood.

Crawdaddy's in Jensen Beach for seafood. Particularly the chowder.

Bistro Madeleine in PSL for breakfast.

El Cubanito in PSL. Call ahead for the paella.

Peter's Steak House in Jensen Beach for steaks and a touch of Brooklyn, by way of Austria.

The Flagler Grill in Stuart for a casual but fancy dinner.

Seminole Inn in Indiantown for a nice brunch.

The Black Marlin in Stuart for a casual dinner.

Monkey King in Stuart for local beer! I can't wait. I love local beer.

Ian's Tropical Grill in Jensen Beach for Old Florida and 40% of wine on Thursdays! (Found that tidbit in the Palm Beach Post.)

Delmonico's in PSL. My mom always wants to take me here anyhow. Sweet potato fries, I know.

So that's all I've got. Would love tweaks, replacements, other suggestions, etc. I LOVE local beer and local food. (I think one of the best things about living in England is the emphasis on "eat local." So if you have recs for farmers markets or farm stands or anything market-like, please let me know that too. If you don't want to write an essay on the boards, e-mail via my blog on my About page. You'll find the link to my blog on my profile.)

Cheers, as they say here!
