Roundup #17

Here's another entry where I cover some stuff that doesn't fit neatly into a standard restaurant review. If this is your first time here don't let this entry throw you off; we really do have tons of reviews of Mexican restaurants, in fact over 200, so just keep scrolling down.

Mexican restaurants I've been to for non-review purposes since the last roundup entry include: Taco Bell, Avila's el Ranchito, Cancun Fresh, Wahoo's, On the Border, Taco Rosa, El Pollo Loco, Javier's, Taleo, La Salsa, Del Taco, Sharky's, Tia Juana's, Rubio's, Taco Factory, Gabbi's, El Torito Grill, Chipotle, El Matador, Rancho del Zocalo, Azteca's, Taco Adobe, Cafe Maiz, and Carnitas la Villa.

Here's a picture of my salmon and clams entree from Taco Adobe:

Non-Mexican restaurants I've been to since the last roundup entry include but are not limited to: Daphne's Greek Cafe, ESPN Zone, River Belle Terrace, Tommy Pastrami, Toshi's Sushi, The French Market, Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen Express, Inka Grill, Chick-Fil-A, King's Hawaiian, Mugen Japanese Cuisine, Chinese Gourmet, Lola's Ice Cream & Deli, Knowlwood, NYC Cafe, BJ's Pizza, In-N-Out, Nalu's Island Grill, First Class Pizza, Todai Seafood Buffet, Duke's, The Olive Garden, Ruby Palace, Red Robin, and Watson's Drug Store and Soda Fountain.

Here's a picture of my Ensenada Chicken Platter from Red Robin, "Two tender, juicy chicken breasts basted with a zesty Mexican blend of seasonings, charbroiled and bursting with Baja-style flavor.

Here's a few funny things that people have searched on that led them to the blog here:

  • "picture of person turning into mexican food"
  • "are desserts from taco bell bad for you?"
  • "orange lamborghini with flames"
Also, I updated my entry on Frieda's.

And, last but not least, I've been informed by the webmaster at Yum Tacos! that the Sacramento City Council is taking measures that are attempting to put taco trucks in the city out of business. Now, Sacramento is far away but we don't want anti-taco truck sentiment to grow there and spread down here, so click the link and read the petition Yum Tacos is running to "Save Sacramento's Taco Trucks."

Kicking taco trucks out of any city would be a SHAME. *Sigh*

What did you think of Mugen? I've never had much luck there. I used to work nearby so it was like, meh, it's an option.

Funny the search terms people find you with, eh?

There's only thing I've ever got from Mugen and it was only two or three times but I thought it was fine. Yeah, it's an option. Kind of a quick lunch stop kind of a place.

Someone has to say it: Wow Christian, you eat out a lot! Guess that's an important quality in a food reviewer, hm... I just don't know how you eat out so often and don't weigh a ton while I'm at home eating veggie sticks and splurging once a week. Life is Not Fair.

Also, not fair for the Sacramento taco trucks: thanks for spreading the word.

Keep in mind that that list covers approximately four months. Actually, tonight I stayed in and had a storebought deli sandwich, one of these Oscar Mayer things that's like a grownup Lunchable.
