Let’s be honest … who doesn’t like “the sauce”? Dipping spring rolls in peanut sauce, or empanadas in chimichurri sauce, or chicken tenders in honey mustard sauce all just seem so natural! But adding a sauce to one of our Ciccio bowls, stir frys or wraps? Ciccio Cali SaucesDefinitely!

Think of it this way: why wouldn’t our homemade wasabi aioli taste great on our Poki Bowl (quick reminder, our Poki Bowl is made of seared rare ahi tuna with fresh minced ginger, cilantro and spicy rayu ponzu sauce, over jicama and cucumber, topped with yuzu tobikko and sesame seeds).  Or why would’t you add a little twist to our Southwest Wrap by accompanying it with some of our homemade Ciccio Salsa?

With several sauces to choose from (including both dairy free and gluten free options), there are seemingly endless pairings of our sauces and our uniquely crafted dishes.

If you’ve been on South Howard, you’ve seen Daily Eats – a well-known South Tampa diner serving up everything from omelets to mac-n-cheese to burgers to shredder bowls. With a long history of being known as a great spot for breakfast any day of the week and a fantastic weekend brunch, Daily Eats is so much more, with a little something for everyone!

If you’re looking to indulge,  the Spicy Buffalo Cheesy Mac is calling your name (bleu cheese fondue, buffalo crispy chicken and celery with a breadcrumb crust). On the other hand, if you’re trying to be health-conscious, our Steak & Eggs Breakfast Bowl can be prepared with egg whites and spinach instead of whole eggs and totts.

As always, Daily Eats features breakfast all day everyday! And stop by 2 to 7 any day of the week for $6 burgers and $2 mimosas! See you tonight for dinner!
