Welcome back from the Fourth of July holiday (for those in the US)!
Admittedly, I am catching up with everything, but this post proves I'm still alive!
Recently, "The Ukrainian" and I found this little restaurant in the Arcadia, CA area.
At the time we went, I was going on a carb strike of sorts, so I limited myself to a couple of chips only. But when you are carb-deprived, even just a few warm chips taste heavenly!
We started out by sharing this guacamole salad. It was huge and came out really quickly. I picked around the chicken.
"The Ukrainian" got fajitas, and this was just half of the order. Yikes! I ate most of the salad, since we had already eaten the colossal one above. Not much of the rice was touched, and not because it was bad, but mostly because I didn't want to inhale carbs to demoralize "The Ukrainian."
The other half: steak chicken, and veggies (bell pepper -- ick!, mushrooms, and onions).
I ordered these fish tacos. I only had a couple of bites of the tortilla, as I mostly just cared about the fish. There was some majorly yummy cream in the background, which I used to dip radishes. Enough dairy pills saved me from utter stomach pain later.
Overall, I loved this place! Their menu is long, service quick and friendly, great ambiance, and they have alcohol for those who are inclined! I will be back!
I should add that the anti-carb fest mentioned throughout this entry was temporary in nature, and I tried to adhere as much as I could in support.
Tomorrow is "The Ukrainian"'s birthday! I hope to come back here and report on whatever awesome (but low-key) thing he will get!
