Hello Foodie Friends,
Earlier this week I was invited to dine at Mussel Beach right in the heart of Downtown Delray, on the corner of 5th & Atlantic Avenue. Now, I've passed by there a gazillion times, but hadn't been in there until now.
Instead of bread baskets, guests at Mussel Beach receive a basket of Truffle Fries - now that's an unexpected and tasty way to start, wouldn't you agree?!?
The next several photos are just a few of the dozen different varieties of specialty Mussels they serve here at Mussel Beach. Did you know that one pound of mussels has only 10g of Fat, 2g of Saturated Fat, Only 300 Calories, 54g of Protein and Only 17g of Carbs? So feel free to indulge guilt-free!

Until we eat again...
