Hanging out in Sacramento!

Mendocino Farms for lunch!!

Chinese Chicken salad, Bahn Mi salad, Club sandwich.

Nice greens and the rest, but the chicken in the Chinese Chicken salad was a bit mealy, for lack of a better descriptor.

Maybe the chicken was overcooked or marinated too long. For a chain, that place wasn’t too bad, but I’ve only had the pork belly banh mi as part of a work lunch box

BTW, that overdone burger was a crime.

I just had the banh mi salad, a day later, and really enjoyed it. Wanting to walk to McKinley Park but it is getting hot up in here!

Back to Bawk, this time for fried chicken and fried fish.

Both fish ( Swai I think) and chicken thigh was quite good. I haven’t tried the rest yet. I appreciated the difference between the coating on the chicken vs. the fish. The chicken was a little sweet, the fish a cornmeal mixture.



I also appreciated the option of giving my order to someone from Bawk who could answer my questions, and not just profit from supplying an app. It was made to order and ready in under 30 minutes. Fish was by the piece, and the chicken “plate” was served with cornbread and choice of another side.

Well, I guess Bawk is going on the list.

Looks tasty — I was thinking of this place this other day but may just have to stop. At the time I was “chickened out”… I can’t believe how many places offer chicken fried in its various forms.

Have you been to Urban Roots, their other restaurant/brewery? I recall some tasty items there as well.

I have not! I looked it up, but didn’t think I could walk there. I am enjoying this walking thing!

Breakfast croissant, iced coffee at the N Street Cafe. Nice vibe, good sandwich , coffee, and service.

Today was Corti Brothers . No surprises, but a nice respite and a good (spicy molinari) sandwich.




My Airbnb accidentally sent someone to clean, and they had carted off some of my things when I got there.

Cans of ventresca tuna and some Van Leeuwen ice cream ream!

Not to mention some needed documents. :flushed: Can’t imagine what would have been missing if I didn’t send them to retrieve my things in the middle of the purge!

Stopped at Pedrick’s for cherries on the way home.

Waiting in line, lots of goodies!

Please tell me you went to Babes for dessert afterwards.

How can you go wrong with ice cream and donuts?

I am tsking you for thinking desert after lunch on a Tuesday, but I did go to Ginger Elizabeth and the place next door, hunting for kouign amann.

ETA Babes is the place I went to after Ginger Elizabeth!

I have dessert after breakfast.

I would have dessert after dessert, if only I could get up early enough.

I think Faria still makes kouign amann, and they are open during the week (unlike Moonbelly).

Thank you!
Thursday is my last day!

Back to Bawk for not salad. I got more fried chicken, on this, my second to last day.

This time I got a whole fried chicken, with a “medium sweet” heat. Mild to me, but aside from that, quite good, at least while still hot , and in case you haven’t noticed, I eat a relative lot of fried chicken.

I also got some “whole” chicken wings, as opposed to smaller “party” wings. Blue cheese “dip”. Haven’t tried them yet. I will be interested to see how they fare at room temp.

Last day of the regular visits? Hopefully all went well.

Perhaps it was the power of suggestion on the prior posts, but I tried Y.A.F.C.S.P (yet another fried chicken sandwich place). Wasn’t bad, but the $12.35 price for full sando + fries + drink somehow seemed like a bargain in this day and age.
