Corned beef sandwich – The Sentinel

Project 365: Day 56

Finished my training course today, yay! Now back to the office and the daily grind, sadness. The day has gone by quickly though since I had to work in two locations. Heading to the gym after work and getting dry cleaning on the way home. I need to pack some dress clothes for the Ohio trip in case we have a fancy dinner one night. Hope not since I want to keep it casual, but at least the food should be tasty if we do!

The Sentinel, San Francisco

This sandwich was SO good! I love the soft focaccia and the corned beef was really delicious! I’m not sure if I’ve had Russian dressing before (I’ve read that Thousand Island is a variant though) but it worked well with the cabbage “slaw”. Noms!

Menage a trois sandwich – Ike’s Place

Menage a trois sandwich Ike's Place

Halal chicken, real honey, honey mustard, bbq, pepper jack, swiss, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, dirty sauce on Dutch crunch bread. $11.11
Ike’s Place, San Francisco

Ok, normally I’d be bitching and moaning about a sandwich that costs more than ten dollars, but the sandwiches at Ike’s are pretty large and super tasty! They have SO many sandwich options, that you should definitely go online and choose what you want first before heading over since they don’t post all the options at the store.

This sandwich was REALLY good! I loved the halal chicken with the honey, honey mustard, and bbq combo! Throw some dirty sauce in there and you’re in sauce heaven!

Hawaiian burger – Pinocchio In The Desert

Project 365: Day 10

I had a hard time sleeping last night, not sure why. I even had a nightmare where a snake tried biting me. Odd, huh?

Silverfox and I had a late brunch at one of our usual Palm Springs breakfast joints, Pinocchio In The Desert. Unfortunately, we were SO disappointed. Maybe it was the overcast weather, but everything at this place seemed off.  I’ve always known that you don’t really go to Pinocchio for the food, but the atmosphere is usually really fun so you don’t notice that the food isn’t all that great.

Today, we both noticed that the food was really crappy. That and the bottomless mimosas gave me a headache and knocked me out for the afternoon.

We did have a great dinner at Johannes though. You can read my diatribe about dark restaurants in my previous entry. I HATE DARK RESTAURANTS! So annoying.

Otherwise, had a lazy day. Did some clothes shopping and ran some errands. A nice vacay day if you ask me. Just wish the food had been better.

Hawaiian burger Pinocchio In The Desert

Half pound burger on a whole wheat bun, pineapple, teriyaki sauce, lettuce, sliced tomato, pickles, caramalized onions, swiss cheese and cole slaw. $10.95
Pinocchio In The Desert, Palm Springs CA

I guess this tasted ok, but how can you really go wrong with a burger drenched in teriyaki sauce with pineapples! Hawaiian burgers have always been a favorite of mine, but the beef patty on this burger was a bit of a throw away. Sad.

Bottomless mimosas

Bottomless champagne $3.95 per glass, orange juice carafe $3.95. This gave me a headache this time around.
