Grub & Carmela's

JP and me went to Grub again and they were open! Yay! We tried to head to Son Of A Gun but the parking over there was just horrible so we went to Grub and found parking pretty damned fast. Even though it was busy we were able to grab a seat quickly. On weekends they have a brunch menu so we got our brunch on.

JP got the chorizo burrito with sour cream and guacamole on the side. We each got a side of crack bacon. I got this monster ass pancake and then left some of it at the place! Argh!!! It was a big pancake with bacon inside, with cheese on top, and syrup. Yeah. I know. Sounds terrible. But it was so good! It shouldn't have been but it was! JP agreed. After coming back to my place and laughing for hours and recording a show we headed to Carmela's for ice cream! This was such a fun day! You don't even know!

Continental Kitchen & Chili's

Last Friday before the Florence & The Machine concert Cam and I swung by Continental Kitchen. I love this place. They are always good. Always. Cam got a turkey burger with fries and a ginger soda while I got a classic burger with bacon, fries, and a Snapple. It was a really good night started with bellies full of awesome.

Sunday we went to Chili's in Simi Valley after seeing the new baby. We had a few choices and picked this. The nachos with guacamole were good and I really liked my burger with onions and bacon. Cam was not a fan of her turkey burger. We're gonna have to get a do-over for her. Oh, and I got the strawberry lemonade which was really good. They have this newfangled thing where you pay at the table with a credit card machine. It was weird.

Bollini's in Monteray Park

Last weekend I went to Bollini's in Monteray Park with Cam and two of her friends and a mama. I had never heard of or been to this place before. This was at the end of a busy day of being a professional passenger so by the time it was time to eat I was good and ready. There would be no leftovers for me this day. 

We started with a pizza that was split in half. One side I forget what it had but the other had shrimp. Both were good but I would have liked the pizza more without the tail of the shrimp being on it still. It was like bite, pull out shrimp, put tail on plate, continue eating. 

For the main course I got a chicken dish that was just too damned good. It also had mashed potatoes and spinach. I gave the spinach to Cam. I don't mess with that stuff. The amount was huge and sliced perfectly for eating. I let everyone have a piece because for as many times as they had been here none of them had ever tried it. It also had mushrooms on top that were super soft. If I am ever over in this area I'd love to go again.

More Bludso's

Last week I went to Bludso's once again with a different cousin. This time it was Mala and she had not been before. We ended up getting the rib tips, beef brisket, potato salad, collard greens, cornbread, and macaroni. To drink I got the sweet tea which was really good. 

Mala thought the collard greens were too spicy but I don't eat those so I cant tell you. Otherwise we both liked the food and she plans on going back again. I like that every time I go to this place the food is good and the staff is nice. We had a distractingly hot waitress that liked my Bob Ross shirt. Next time I go I am going to take some dessert to go and some extra chicken. I cant just keep on getting beef items every damned time.

Fried Chicken At Plan Check

Today JP and I went to Grub and they were closed. The end. Seriously, we headed there and they were closed until 5pm so we were gonna head to Bludso's but then I suggested Stout but JP had already been there before so then I remembered that Plan Check is supposed to have bomb ass fried chicken so we went there instead. I am currently drinking apple moonshine from BevMo so forgive any nonsense in this post, yes?

Parking was easy and we found a spot pretty fast. We got a nice seat and ordered our food. For a drink I got a mango soda that was pretty damned good. For food I decided that we were gonna get some of everything and split it. We got fries, a Chef Burger that has the fried cheese, bacon, and ketchup leather. For the first time I tried the pastrami sandwich which had everything pastrami does but...better. Then we got the fried chicken. It is a lot. Sits on a bed of yam preserve and some really good milk gravy. We left the pickled okra out. When I say this is some of the best fried chicken I've ever had that made JP dance in her chair I am not lying.
