Outstanding chicken pancit at Carin de Ria in Escondido!
I celebrated National Sammich Day in style recently. Went to my favorite sandwicheria in town, Quizno’s! Been wanting to try their new gyro flatbreads – so that’s what I did. These two gyros cost only $7.20. A big league value!
The gyro meat was very tasty. A seasoned beef & lamb mixture that was tender, flavorful and moist. Also included crumbled feta, banana peppers, shredded lettuce, maters & onion, topped with tzatziki sauce. Traditional gyro sandwiches usually don’t include feta and peppers but on this Quizno version it really made it a standout. Highly recommended! Overall, the whole combination of flavors and textures was just outstanding. I only wish the flatbread was a little softer/more supple.
Super excited to check out the new menu at The Oaks Grille/Par Lounge! First section I focused on was their assortment of premium a la carte sides. It featured my favorite vegetable, macaroni & cheese, so I had to try it. Made with cavatappi pasta, a legit béchamel incorporating gruyere and provolone cheeses, topped with crispy breadcrumbs. Only $5. Honestly, I was impressed with the portion size. I could have made this a meal in itself, along with a couple of draft IPAs. The best version of top shelf mac & cheese I’ve had in Ramona to date. That, I can tell you. I consider myself a m&c connoisseur and what I had tonight was outstanding!
Recently attended an event for the Ramona Pregnancy Care Clinic catered by John Little Catering. They did an outstanding job! This bread pudding dessert was particularly remarkable.
