What's new in northern O.C.?

Dying to try the Tio Flaco's...maybe tomorrow.

You Can Eat Carbs

Yes, my ex mother-in-law's meatloaf.

Does It Bother You to Be Photographed While Eating?

I would look at the upside. You have lots of pictures of all family get-togethers, so save the ones you like and forget about the rest.

Who knows, maybe one day you will he happy he did this.

Yes, there are 3 of them. Condiments on the tables, friendly workers that bring your food to you when it's ready- it's like stepping into the past.

Mr. Taster is the guy that turned me on to them. Go every time to or from Las Vegas.

I have not been yet, but if you have ever been to the Barstow Del Tacos (compared to the rest) I'm hoping this is what they are doing.

Fresh, good quality and looks like the pictures:)

meals in Newport Beach

That end of town I like Alessa, Sabatino's and A Restaurant (pricey).

+1. INO is only $7 or so for a combo, so if someone doesn't like it, not out significant $$$. Hell, it's a Fiji water at the pool at most hotels.

This time of year, you can get in almost any spot easily- which is great. Sometimes a changed plan can turn into the best experience.

$15 Minimum Wage=No Tip

I get the point. Your tax-cheating friends will obviously make more money, assuming they don't get caught.

My waiter friend of 35 years declares all of his income and probably 95% of his tips are on a credit card, so he would have no choice in any case.

Whether someone pays taxes or not is none of my business, be it my plumber, doctor or server.

Nice reviews, thanks! A pleasure not having to wonder whether all/part/some nebulous combo- of the meals were comped in exchange for multiple postings on various sites.

I could have eaten a double order of the salad, and on a regular basis.

Looking forward to trying more of the tacos.

Did not realize there was a location in the Irvine Spectrum and tried it for the first time yesterday.

Everything I ordered was excellent- Short rib grilled cheese, Mr. Potato taco and a kale Waldorf salad.

The place was spotless and filled with a cheery staff. Looking forward to going back and trying more.

La Scala Sucks

I just don't get this place either. Haven't been in ages myself, but I have a friend who is a world traveler, knows food and when he's in town goes there a couple times a week.

For that lousy salad.

Subway made 2 mistakes that are destroying its business

I think they make the plainest, most boring bread in an attempt to make the wafer-thin cold cuts stand out to have at least some flavor.

Still like eating a bread sandwich- I never taste anything.

Offering alternative meals to children - yay or nay

Well said Sandy!

That last paragraph sounds kind of sad.

Offering alternative meals to children - yay or nay

I had no interaction with my father until I was an adult. Our first breakfast together, we both ordered pancakes and over-easy eggs. We both put the eggs on the top of the pancakes and didn't use any syrup.

As time went on, I discovered we both loved coffee ice cream and hated fish along with many other similar likes/dislikes.

I think that stuff must be like cat pee then. The only way to get rid of the smell is to move.

Subway made 2 mistakes that are destroying its business

After reading your post, I thought of the 2 places I go to most for sandwiches and why I don't go to Subway anymore.

One is an upscale grocery deli- for $11.99 I can get a real roast turkey and brie sandwich on a La Brea baguette, with 2 sides that include wonderful salads. So yes, it's a more $$$ but no sales tax.

The other is just a regular grocery store, with Dietz and Watson sandwiches, $3.99. 8oz, with protein and cheese on good breads.

I guess my point is, I can find better than Subway even at a lower price point if I don't want to spend more money.

I wish I had taken a picture of the "salad" I bought in desperation a few months ago. Watery lettuce and veggies more flaccid than a 90 year old man.

"Good enough" isn't for me. Fortunately I can spend a few extra bucks to avoid Subway, McDonald's and other pitiful excuses for food.

Next Food Network Star - latest and greatest?

Jeff Mauro still has Sandwich King besides The Kitchen.

Favorite food items at Disneyland (ex. Club 33)?

I was going to rec the same thing. Getting in and out of the park is a pain- there is lots at DTD. One of my favorites is Uva Bar (there is a round circular indoor area under Catal restaurant, same owner).

Family friendly and decent prices- I like the lamb burger and they do have a children's menu.

And beer selection too.

Why no pork at Pick Up Stix or Panda Express?

They are more like rib bits, maybe 2 inches long at most.

I'm going to email both chains and see what kind of response I get.

There is, $1.50 for the pork ribs.

The nice thing that Disney finally did was redo their site with all food spot menus and their prices. Before, they would have a "range".
