Little Tree is a variety of interesting things. A fantastic sushi bar, where you can sit and watch the chefs make the sushi. Interesting Japanese, Thai and Phillipine menu. Huge varity, medium prices. Really cool "Nu-Asian" menu and decor.

I had a Pad Cashew, which was "mild". It was incredibly tasty, but a touch too spicy for me to eat. Okay, I'll admit it...I'm a wimp! My dinner came with Tom Yum soup (which I'd never liked before, but this was fantastic), and a salad with a very unique fruity dressing that was really tasty. Jason had a Japanese noodle bowl with tofu and veggies. We also split an order of tempura veggies, and a veggie sushi. Everything was fantastic, including the service.

Actually, when we first walked in, we went over the menu, checking for vegitarian fare. The waiter that we had was very willing answer any questions that we had, and went out of his way to check on just how vegitarian some of the meals were.


Vegitarian: They do have a few things, but doublecheck before you order to make sure that it doesn't have fish sauce or paste in it. Most of the things that you'd *think* were veggie, weren't necessarily. There are several sushi, however, that are veggie. (of course!)

For those familiar with Schelde Resturaunts, this is one of the newest. It's also one we hit with some regularity!

It's a small Cuban cafe, attatched to another Schelde place called Bastone. (We'll cover them another time.) Meals are inexpensive, but unique and tasty. We actually went there for breakfast this morning, as they have a good morning menu. I had a ham and manchego omlete, made with the serano ham, served with a think potato pancake-type thing, which was fantastic. The serano ham, though, does tend to be a bit too salty for me, and they are very liberal with it. Jason got Pan Tostado, which is their version of French Toast, served with a "fruit salsa", mostly strawberries and peaches. The stuff is fantastic! After trying my potato, he got one of his own, along with an order of toast. Their toast is a thickly sliced egg bread, that is not toasted, but grilled in butter. Yum!!!

Habana is also the only place that we routinely order desert after breakfast. They have churros, a deep-fried cinnamon coated tasty bit, that is served with a little cup of hot chocolate. Not powedered hot chocolate, but a thick, creamy blend of melted chocolate and milk. Dip those babies in, and eat up!

We got in fast this morning, but there were violent thunderstorms all night long and into the morning, so the whole downtown area was pretty much dead. When we left, we were the only people there! Needless to say, service was pretty darn good, and the food came up quick :)

My favorite part, though, is the Limeade. Fresh squeezed, a hint of vanilla and almost no sugar, it's superduper tart, and fantastically tasty. If you don't like sour, you might want to avoid this stuff.

Veg Status: They do have some breakfast stuff that is veg friendly, but only one dinner item that is. None of it is vegan friendly.
