Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet salads, noodles, and paninis at MecaFresh in Palm Harbor.
MecaFresh, owned and operated by experienced chefs Robert Stea and Louis Venne, culls fresh produce, quality meats, artisan breads, and gourmet sauces from around the world to inform a globally-inspired menu. Grilled chicken joins forces with mixed greens, roasted peppers, gorgonzola cheese, and walnuts to create aptly named walnut-and-gorgonzola chicken salads ($8.50), while Boar's Head roast beef paninis instill incisors with elation they haven't felt since being chosen to replace baby teeth ($8.25). MecaFresh's chefs also sling a variety of Asian noodle bowls such as shrimp-topped pad thai to satiate seafood cravings ($9.75) and tofu-topped long noodles to leave vegetarians brimming with soy ($8.50).
