Little Caesar’s 

Outstanding Italian sausage pizza from Little Caesar’s!

Sombrero Mexican Food

What an amazing honor!  Free burritos for a month! 🙂

Jimbo’s Naturally!

Jimbo’s is a small chain of natural foods grocers here in SoCal.  They have a great fresh deli section with housemade sandwiches.  Pretty pricy, but here’s an outstanding made to order turkey sandwich.  They call it “The Natural”.  Made with layers of fresh, natural turkey breast piled high with organic lettuce, mater and sprouts.  Includes Jimbo’s own organic herbal eggless mayonnaise on a 6-grain bread.  

  

The Cork and Craft

This is a great new place in Rancho Bernardo, barely a year old.  Tucked in an obscure commercial industrial area, you’d never know it was there if not for the tacky banner flags they have out front.  Here’s an order of tasty chicken wings.  Made with salt & pepper, garlic, red chile and scallions.  Lunch order comes with a good amount, but they could be a bit bigger. 

  
 

Two years!

Food Observations was born two years ago today and I enjoy sharing now more than ever. Thanks for all the follows and likes. Here’s a lonely muffin from a recent stay at Embassy Suites. I originally had no plans to post this one, but the color of the plate keeps jumping out at me.

Hilton Garden Inn

Here at the the Solomon’s Island HGI, missing my Embassy Suites happy hour. Anyway, I have to pay for my beers here, but oh well, could be worse. I really need to find this blueberry brew in California. It’s really tasty! I’ve had witbiers from Sam Adams that are similar, but this is just a whole new level of flavor. Maybe it’s the 8% that helps…

Domino’s Pizza

More tasty than Caesar’s Hot & Ready, but $3 more. I enjoy placing the order online and watching the cooking status in real time while my wife goes to pick it up.

Jersey Mike’s

First time trying one of these great sandwiches. It’s a chain and there’s quite a few around SoCal. All the deli meat is sliced to order and the bread is fresh and top notch. This is the Italian, which consists of the usual ham, salami, pepperoni, cappicola, etc. The vegetable offerings are basic enough that all I have to say is “no tomato”.

Outback Steakhouse

Here is their petite filet and grilled shrimp. The best part was the remoulade sauce. And a meal at Outback wouldnt be complete without the venerable Bloomin’ Onion.

Pei Wei Asian Diner

Again I got the Pad Thai. It’s really good, but about half way through, the intense flavors become a bit tiring. I think next time I’ll go back to my usual fried rice bowl.
