- While the roast beef is the signature sammie at Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Café, we went back twice for the hot turkey reuben with sauerkraut on whole-grain bread. The pastrami is housemade, with a whole lot less fat than the traditional beef version. Yum! And it’s the place for Starbucks drinks – try the chai latte with a shot of espresso to start your day.
- At Flo’s V8 Café in Cars Land, we’ll order anything with the verde sauce, delicious on the breakfast tamale with scrambled eggs. But we’re fans of the veggie tater bake and the pork loin with a sweet Coca-Cola barbecue sauce. You can always get one of each and share for a balance of healthful and indulgent. Add a mini fruit or chocolate pie, just enough.
- At Cozy Cone Motel, everyone was clamoring for the adorable cone drinks, but we were enamored with the dill pickle popcorn with a subtle zing of dill. Cozy Cone 3 has two edible cones with the taste and texture of pretzels – our favorite was the chicken verde (again with the delish green sauce) and topped with a sprinkle of queso fresco. So easy to walk and nosh!
- And we saved the best for last, our divine dinner at Carthay Circle Restaurant. We started with a handcrafted cocktail downstairs in the lounge and a nibble of the cool lobster pad thai roll. Heading upstairs to the glamorous dining room, don’t miss the fried biscuits stuffed with white cheddar, bacon and jalapeño with apricot-honey butter. But our favorite appetizer was the halibut ceviche with buttery avocado and a side of crispy plaintains. Next, we dove into the bowl of firecracker duck wings that we dipped in the soy, lime and chili sauce. For an entrée, our server recommended the bacon-wrapped shrimp on summer roasted corn with grilled zucchini and basil salsa – a satisfying combo with the rich bacon and light, fresh veggies. Of course we had to try the toasted lemon pound cake with blueberries and lemon curd cream, worth every calorie.
