Anyone tried that Mexican restaurant off 12th Ave and Franklin Blvd in South Sacramento? It looks a little ghetto, but the food was pretty good. And it was cheap.

Ikes is good. Kinda over it though it was better 3 or 4 years ago I think. I need to try Super Duper Burger.

Cream or C.R.E.A.M or cookies rule everything around me is a dessert spot on Berkely. I don't know if they have other spots in the Bay but their specialty is a big scoop of ice cream inbetween 2 cookies. It's a legit ice cream sandwich instead of the normal ones in the freezer aisle. Flavours and cookies are in variety. Look at Blues pics above

They have long lines since its popular but when something is popular it always can be considered overrated/overhyped. I've never been so I can't opinionate
I went to the one near Stanford a couple days ago.

Double choco chip + green tea :pimp:

To me the ice cream they use isn't like overly sweet, so it's perfect with the cookies.

Real good.

If anyone wants some good Taiwanese food in the South Bay, peep Mama Chef's.

Someone recommend a good bbq joint down here? I heard someone talking about a spot near/on Capitol?

Wassup Everyone,

I know it's been a while but just trying to stay positive and work my *** off. So I have some exciting news for those who were interested the last time I suggested it as such....


Exclusively for a few NT'ers on my Food Tour Project (production it is in testing mode and therefore I need some trial run folks to give me better feedback as to adjusting the route and such, etc.) for my website. I'll be sharing all of the details with the winners!

So how do you enter?

People eligible for now, are only those residents within the San Francisco Bay Area. If you're willing to make the trip from elsewhere (LA or Sacramento) depending on your willingness to participate, I may make an exception...

PM me your first and last name, NT user name, age and email. (For this contest, I'll have this be 18+ however, if I pick you as the winner, you will need to present I.D. verify that since its a legal matter for my website especially when I do 21+ focused food tours in the future). I will not keep this info in the future, I will not spam or do anything illegal. This just to maintain legal aspects.

There will be some surprise prizes for those willing to participate in this. You will not only get a lot of insight about food and drink within the bay area but if you ever need a connection in the industry, well that can also be a plus.

The contest will end midnight (the morning of Friday. July 5th not July 4th or July 6th)!

Thanks and good luck to everyone willing to participate, peace!

Carolina's? Yes. One of my favorite Mexican spots in Sacramento. California Burrito w/ egg is a MUST.
