Eats

Kasbah Lounge

Kasbah Lounge 2115 J St.| Sacramento Deciding upon a worthy and not-too-frequented dining spot around central Sacramento that featured ethnic eats was no easy task. There were a lot of worthy and affordable international restaurants, but many only open until 3 p.m. or 5 p.m., or only open on the…

Burger-Off ’08

I’ve been waiting weeks for this one, often fighting cravings in fear of burning out on America’s crown jewel of ground beef and its accompanying deep fried golden strands of starch. Yes, friends, I’m talking about the cheeseburger and freedom fries. Say what you will, but few meals beat the…

Jamie’s Bar and Grill

Jamie’s Bar and Grill 427 Broadway Sacramento, California You could drive past Jamie’s Bar and Grill 100 times without realizing it was even there. Located at 427 Broadway, Jamie’s is not extravagant by any stretch of the word. Other than a green awning there isn’t a sign that would attract…

Tres Hermanas

2416 K St. SACRAMENTO, CA As I’ve mentioned before in this column, I’m a huge fan of taco trucks, and that same love extends to small “authentic”-feeling joints that sell forearm-sized burritos for $5.50. I don’t know if it’s a case of conditioning, because in college a trip to the…

Pieces Pizza

1309 21st Street | Sacramento, California I never use this phrase, and I mean it in the most endearing and honorary sense, but Pieces Pizza is that crack! In terms of pizza by the slice restaurants, I will go on record as saying that Pieces is quite possibly the best…

The Sandwich Spot

The Sandwich Spot 18th and Q Sacramento, CA When it comes to going out for sandwiches, I’m always a little leery. So many times I’ve gone to a deli and left feeling like I could have assembled a better sandwich at home and saved a couple bucks in the process….

Vote Fruit Carts, in the ’08

I support taco trucks, hot dog vendors (especially those dudes who mix in the bacon, onions and peppers), ice cream trucks (and handcarts) and basically almost any mobile food service. I admire their entrepreneurship, and most importantly, their food. They work hard, so I have no problem breaking bread with…

Taste of Thai, Sacramento

I admit to not being well versed on Thai food; all I know is that I like it. I couldn’t tell you what is authentic and what’s not, but Taste of Thai, located on 1628 Broadway, makes the guessing game easy. Their tag line reads, “Authentic Thai Cuisine” and is…

B STREET X 29TH STREET X E STREET

BY CHARLIE LOVESHAFT FIRST YOU COULD START AT THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD AT 201 29th St and pick yourself up some free rubbers. Free is always good. Especially when it saves your junk and prevents any new lil’ groms’ from being brought into this already overpopulated world. PS Don’t forget that…
