Eating Out

For lunch Thursday I ate at Earl of Sandwich on 16th and G Street. It was my first time. 

Despite the tall iron fence and moat, there is an easy entrance from the parking lot, and an agreeable staff inside. The 1970s wallpaper is some of Sacramento's sexiest.

The restaurant is small, but has 4 or 5 outside tables that look like they would provide an interesting urban dining experience.

I was surprised, but not disappointed that there weren't really sandwiches. It is a burger joint. 

My double cheeseburger and giant Coke totaled $6.57 plus a 43 tip.

After work that day, a double rainbow dominated the eastern sky. It was so vibrant that people were calling each other up all over midtown to talk about it.

I wouldn't be surprised if it made the news that night.

For dinner, Stacy and I visited Cafe Morocco near Alhambra and Capital.  This place was small and very comfortable.

I was caught off-guard by the Caucasian waitress. 

I had dolmas and delicious lamb Shish Kebab. I don't remember what Stacy had.

I smile when I think of all the chicken and french fries I ate while I was actually IN Morocco...what was I thinking? Morocco travelogue

Inside I was recognized by some other diners. I met Heather and Ian Golder, just finishing their dinner. They correctly guessed that I was in the middle of the month of eating out, and they let me know they were looking forward to the results.

That really made dinner special. 

The total price of my dinner was $25.86.

The next day, it was back to Mexican food at Taqueria Jalisco on 16th and E.

During my short visit, I didn't spot any evidence as to why, at 12 noon on a Friday, there were almost no other customers.

I had a chicken burrito with a "tutifruti" Jarritos soda - $6.67 total. It was very good.

 

That night I went to San Rafael to visit Rob and Helen and baby Jasper.

I wasn't looking forward to refusing a home-cooked meal at a friend's house, but that didn't come up. We picked up Indian food at Lotus as soon as I arrived.

 

Tandoori chicken and rice. The chicken was as red as lobster. It was excellent.

My share was $17.

The next morning, I completely forgot about my experiment and accidentally ate a bowl of cereal at Rob and Helen's. Curses!

A few hours later, I stopped to refill my radiator and got a cream filled at Dough Boy Donuts.

My donut was 80

For dinner, Stacy and I visited Fat City, an infamous Sacramento eating establishment.

Fat City is one of several Fat Family restaurants, including

  1. Frank Fat's
  2. Fat's Asia Bistro
  3. California Fat's
  4. I'm not making this up.

A short wait for a table gave me time to watch the bartender in action. I recognized him from either the Megalonychidae or the Bradypodidae family, but I wasn't sure, so I didn't say anything.

My Heineken was $4.30, and I received 7 dimes as change. I was disappointed.

Once we sat down, the Fat City experience got better. I ordered a chicken pot pie (After being assured there was no pot in it). The pie was giant, very hot and delicious. The service was also very good. 

The total for my meal was $23.40.
