Apollo’s Bistro

Bistro Chips – The Blogger’s Favorite – Is It Yours Too?

Food expectations of Apollo Beach residents definitely vary as seen in the variety of comments on the local Face Book groups about pizza a popular favorite. I’m sharing one of my expectations as an Apollo Beach resident of only two years. Might I add that I love Apollo Beach and have met some wonderful people, all food lovers.

My big expectation when eating out is consistency. When I find a place I love to eat I tend to be a creature of habit, often ordering the same food each visit. It’s important to me that each time I order, my favorites are served the same way. That means they look the same, taste the same, and are the same portion, among other things.

The locals’ place I’d like to give kudos to this week for meeting my expectations is Apollo’s Bistro. My all time favorite (and a favorite of friends and family who visit us) is Loaded Bistro Chips, a generous pile of house made chips, topped with diced tomatoes, green onions, Bleu cheese, and a glassy drizzle of balsamic glaze. The ample toppings give way to some remnants on the plate sometimes causing a fork fight if I’m sharing. I could actually eat the whole order myself. Those of you who know me may say “But she’s a nutritionist, why is she eating chips?” I like to look at the positive so can find even the tiniest bit of nutrients in anything so here we positively have a bit of protein, vitamin C and calcium. My rule for me is to enjoy food when eating out, and enjoy food and focus on nutrition more at home.

If you haven’t tried them – you must – especially if you love chips. What’s your favorite food at the Bistro?

Testimonials

Deb Indorato has succeeded in correcting my numerous “gut” issues with her dietary knowledge, professionalism, and efficiency. My first meeting with her proved to me I had hired the right person. Her interview was focused and efficient. Deb’s knowledge of the impact food and drink have on my dietary system were impressive. She immediately set up a meal plan , and I kept a food journal. Within a week she saw a pattern and identified a potential cause of my discomfort. Deb made a recommendation on how to adjust my diet and I am enjoying my life free of most of my gastric problems. I plan to continue working with Deb to focus on a healthy dietary plan. I strongly recommend Deb Indorato.

Deb was genuinely personable and knowledgeable in listening to my concerns. She worked with me to find foods that my children could eat safely and thrive at a time when there weren’t as many choices for alternatives as there are today. I highly recommend working with Deb in any setting, from one-on-one consulting to speaking events. She truly understands and is committed to assisting you.

During my internship I was lucky enough to learn about private practice from Deb. Deb took the time to really understand what my objectives were for the experience and tailored everything she taught me to my personal goals and intention. She was available during the week that I worked with her and was so helpful with any questions that I had- if she didn't already know the answer she knew exactly where to find it! Deb has kept in touch with me in the past 2 years since working with her and she is always available and willing to help. I am now starting my private practice and the week that I spent learning from Deb is helping me even more than I could have hoped for. She's a gifted instructor and truly cares about each person she works with. Thank you Deb for all you did and continue to do for me in my career!
