SB '09 day one.

Friday, March 13, 2009

irv and i picked up pat from the airport this morning. to welcome him to CA we had to, of course, take him out to eat. we took him to grub - a place that is famous for it's "california comfort food."

i wrote about this restaurant the first time i went back in november. click here if you want to read about it.

i decided to try something new this time and ended up getting the Mama Mia! (Vegetarian Baby!) burger. "Our homemade garden burger made with Risotto, Cannellini Beans, Basil & Parmesan Cheese topped with Roasted Garlic Tomato Sauce, melted Mozzarella Cheese, sliced Red Onions & Spring Mix and drizzled with Basil Aioli served up on our whole wheat bun~delicious wonderfulness."

it was interesting. definitely delicious, but nothing like a traditional burger. the risotto consistency made it fall apart easily so it was a little messy to eat. but just pick up a fork and you'll be good to go.

irv got the After School Special* - The Original. "Cheddar and Swiss Cheeses grilled to melting on our tangy sliced Sourdough adorned with delicate Dill Butter served with a cup of our Creamy Dreamy Tomato Soup. Let the dog eat your homework!"

pat got - my favorite - the famous mac & cheese.

and for dessert irv was dying to try the Famous Big Ass Ice Cream Sandwich. "Two gigantic Chocolate Chip Cookies sandwiched (hey, don’t go there) between yummy Neopolitan Ice Cream topped with Whipped Cream AND Chocolate Sauce AND Caramel Sauce…"

since there was only three of us we just got the Half Ass.

as we were finishing up our lunch breckin meyer walked in. it was interesting listening to him talk with his friend about an NCIS spinoff and mischa barton. random, i know.
