A friend of mine and I go from Thai restaurant to Thai restaurant in Sacramento, trying to find a good one and I am glad to say that we have finally discovered it! Tasty Thai in Arden Arcade!  When you sit down, they bring out glasses of water with straws where the wrapping is folded into a rose. The parking lot is a little on the smaller side.  We went recently and I had the best the pad thai I have ever had in Sacramento! The thai hot level of spicy brought tears to my eyes, both tears of joy and pain. Delicious! can’t wait to go again!

Johnny Cash Burger

Johnny Cash Burger

Joe and I were at Costco looking at the rack of giftcards and saw this one. I have been on the tireless search for the best burger in Sacramento and was starting to get bored when I came across this restaurant on Yelp. We decided to come check it out after purchasing our gift card. The first time we came was on  a Saturday dinner, and the place was super crowded and even the bar was completely full. The next time we tried was a Monday, we came a little earlier too and found the place with only a few other tables full, but as we sat down and ordered, the entire place quickly filled up!

Joe had the Johnny Cash Burger, house seasoned Niman Ranch beef, cheddar cheese, bacon, house pickled sweet peppers, onion crisps and housemade BBQ sauce. He got the banh mi fries, which has roasted pulled pork, pickled vegetables, Vietnamese style citrus caramel sauce and jalapenos. Our hands were so full with the burgers, that we had to hold them up for the other one to take a bite. We couldn’t chance letting go, for fear that our giant burgers would fall apart.

I couldn’t decide between getting a burger or the mac and cheese, so I got the Gold Rush burger which had the house seasoned Niman Ranch beef with applewood smoked bacon, mac and cheese, garlic aioli and onion crisps. This burger was amazing! The combination of mac and cheese and hamburger, yum! And I had the gravy fries on the side, topped with cheddar cheese which was the perfect addition to my already cheesy goodness of a burger. By the end of our meal, we were both full and extremely satisfied with our meals.

This place has opened dangerously close to where we live,   when it first opened, the line was out the store and around the corner. We discovered that if we wanted dessert, it just couldn’t be later in the evening so we came once in the middle of the afternoon. There was still a line but it was at least inside and so we waited. It also gave us a good chance to see what other people were ordering. It was nice, they let you try the different ice cream flavors before having to decide.

I decided to go with the glazed donut with cake batter ice cream. I watched with amazing as they cut the glazed donut in half, inserted the scoop of ice cream, and then grilled the entire thing in what looked like a waffle grill. The end product: a delicious, hot on the outside and cold on the inside dessert! A masterpiece! so genius! who even came up with this idea? How did it even come up? Someone was eating a donut one day and decided that they just had to have a scoop of ice cream on the inside? who knows! but thank you!

Welcome to the Chipotle version of pizza. Joe had eaten at a branch in LA and was raving about it when he came back up to Sacramento. To my elation, we found out that they were opening a branch in midtown! Joe went like 3 times during their soft opening (free pizza!) I finally had a chance to join him for dinner one time. So once the line dies down and you get to the counter, you start by selecting your pizza crust, whether or not you want sauce, what type of cheese and then your selection of toppings. I went for a sauce-less pizza with a combo of cheeses, pineapple and sausage. We definitely will come back and try other combinations of flavors.
