Tamaya Sushi & Grill

Tamaya Sushi & Grill 2131 J St., Sacramento By Corey Bloom It seems odd that in spite of the worst economic conditions this country has seen in decades that we are just now coming around to reviewing a sushi restaurant. Trust me, my wallet is just as malnourished as yours,…

Streets of London

Streets of London 1804 J St., Sacramento I love to gorge myself with food 100 times more when I’m drunk as opposed to when I’m high. I don’t know what it is, but I just don’t get the munchies like that; however, after two beers I’m eating whatever I can…

Capitol Dawg

Capitol Dawg 1226 20th St. Sacramento I know how hot dogs are made, but I forgot what I did yesterday, so I have no problem indulging in a true American favorite. Matter of fact, just thinking about the words “encased pork,” I envision a happy wiener dog wearing a chef’s…

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…
