Vallejo lunch recommendation?

I guess that lets out Sac's for chili dogs.

I'm not sure but I think "upscale in Vallejo" qualifies as an oxymoron.

Vallejo lunch recommendation?

My last post on Dillon Bread Co. was in 2012. I really liked the grilled cheese and the jalapeno corn bread.

I checked the lunch menu and I don't care how friendly the egg is on the cheese sandwich as long as it's cooked.

"Grilled Cheese
Matos St. George, tomato jam, Cowgirl Cremery Wagon Wheel, sliced brioche (add bacon or friend egg $3)"

Hebrew National Salami

None presently at Andronico's. There wasn't any for slicing at the deli counters either.

Hebrew National Salami

I've got some in the fridge so it's probably from Grocery Outlet because I'm too cheap to buy it at Andronico where I have also seen it. Try both.
The link above shows salumi-beef chubs at Solano and El Cerrito Safeway plus several others, not Shattuck.

Revisited Da Lian [Berkeley]

Sunday afternoon at 5 returning from a "salon" * (trio and a singer doing old tunes) my wife asked for Chinese and the line was out the door at Great China. Easy parking across from an old favorite Yangtze River now Da Lian. Very happily surprised. Chicken with green beans with wok char on both very good, Honey glazed prawns with a dozen fairly large prawns perfectly done. Will return for more adventurous choices when my son is in town.

Looking for Challah Bread in North San Mateo County

Costco(Richmond) has Semifreddi's Cinnamon Egg Bread.
Perhaps your local has some. Makes great French toast.

Spicely spices

It takes me longer than 60 seconds to find all the bottles, open them, measure, close them and put them away. Then there is the expense and the fact that some of the many infrequently used items are also getting stale. It may work for you but not for mugsy. Those of us without eidetic taste occasionally need shortcuts.

Spicely spices

Great idea but after I bought the 18 ingredients(smallest amount allowed) I ended up with 11/2 pound Ras al Hanout which I will leave in my will for my grandchild to finish.
