This week, I went to Pino’s Pizza Al Centro.

Super yummy!!!  Just the way I like pizza.  It’s fairly inexpensive (with very large pieces of pizza!), but they only take cash (unless your bill is over $25).

Well, this week (and last) I mostly stuck with places I’ve been before.

But, tonight, I was tempted by the chocolate pudding, homemade marshmallow fluff, and crumbled graham crackers.  Yummy!!!

Restaurant Catch Up…

October 15, 2009 at 9:28 pm (Fun Stuff, Restaurant Reviews) (, , )

Oops… I got a little behind in my weekly restaurant reviews.  I think I’m missing one, but I don’t know what it is…

Bellagio Pizzeria – Good food! With Greek and Italian options.  The Souvlaki was excellent.  My only complaint is that they put hummus on the pitas… Oh and a pickle… I’ve never heard of that one before.

Thai Basil – Well, aside from the weird name, it was pretty good.  The lunch menu is a bit limited, but they had a good yellow curry (though their spices run on the hot side).  Their house salad (you get with lunch) was odd…. the dressing tasted like thousand island dressing with peanut oil mixed in.  Also all the meals came with a side of watermelon???

My Big Fat Greek Restaurant – A favorite of mine! Chicken Souvlaki pita.  Only complaint is the area of town is not great for parking.  You can either find one of the every limited spots on the street, or the way overpriced garage across the street…

Gallo Blanco – The restaurant attached to the hotel, so nice and close.  Not my favorite food, but they smoked beef sandwiches are pretty good.  And they are open ’til 11.  Plus free wireless internet is a plus.

Pane Bianco – Pluses – Fresh woodfire bread, fresh mozzarella.  Minuses – limited menu, a little confusing to order.

Little Caesars – We had pizzas delivered at work.  Either I was really hungry (a likely possibility) or they make decent pizza.

Rubios – I’d never heard of this chain, but they have pretty good burritos

Zoe’s Kitchen

It’s alright.  I like that all the sandwiches are on pitas instead of bread. But, their “famous” chicken salad was really kinda gross…

That’s a Wrap

From the outside, That’s a Wrap looks kinda trashy, and the food has lame names, but it tastes really good.  I recommend the Turkey Club.

Dear Mr. Pecan Man,

Dear Mr. Pecan Man,

This morning I purchased a bag of your pecans.  I am writing to inform you that I will probably not be buying them in the future.  There was no problem with the product, in fact the cinnamon sugar pecans are simply excellent.  So excellent that I have eaten nothing but cinnamon sugar pecans all day………

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If anyone else wants excellent pecans, check out Summer Place Pecans.

Last week, I went to the Thai Elephant again (twice…).  Chicken curry and fried tofu excellent as ever, chicken satay just ok (I didn’t particularly like the peanut sauce it came with).

Then on the day I didn’t have left over curry for lunch, I went to Red Brick Pizza.  I think its a little chain, but they make excellent pizza!!! Crispy crust with not too much sauce… just the way I like it!  And the service is really quick.

New Feature – Restaurants

August 28, 2009 at 11:23 pm (Fun Stuff, Life, Restaurant Reviews) (, , )

My mom wanted me to add a new feature to my blog.  Restaurant Reviews.  While my home away from home has a fridge, there is no way to heat up food, so I eat out for almost every meal while I’m there.

Domino’s Pizza – I love that I can place an order online and have it delivered.  Beyond that, it is some of the worst fast food pizza (which is saying a lot, because I usually like fast food pizza).

The Wild Thaiger – Simply excellent thai food (I had the chicken curry and deep fried tofu, but there are a lot of other things on the menu that looked good).  The fried tofu was battered which was a little odd, but the curry was yummy.  Maybe not the safest parking lot (its secluded behind the building), but the other customers seemed to be fairly upstanding.

Subway – My old standby.  Its great on the drive down.

Sweet Tomatoes – Fine tasting food, but wayyyy overpriced.

Sui Wok – Just your usual chinese food.  I had the sesame chicken with rice.  It tasted good, but wasn’t anything exceptional.

Quiznos – Turkey, bacon, avocado sandwich.  It was ok, but has nothing on my beloved Subway.  Service was kinda lame (the guy got really confused when I said I didn’t want cheese… sorry, but I don’t like cheese on my sandwiches…
