Where are we lunching meow? OC edition…

Usually, I don’t go out for lunch during the work week but the past few months, we’ve had people visiting from our home office so naturally, per diem needed to be spent so lunch out it was.  I got to discover and try a bunch of places I didn’t know about near my office.  Photo dump time to clean off my phone!

Banh Mi Burger from Pee Wee's

Nice crusty bread. It was a little dry over all and could have benefited from a sauce of sorts. But the flavors were good.

Sweet Potato Tater Tots from Pee Wee's

I have never seen sweet potato tater tots before. I love sweet potato fries but I ADORE tater tots so this was a match made in heaven for me. WIN!

NY-style pizza from Slice of New York Pizza

Not the best NY-style pizza I’ve had here in CA but decent… I miss Bronx in San Diego.

Grilled garlic flatbread, tomato soup, grilled cheese from Lazy Dog Cafe

The grilled garlic flatbread was free, courtesy of my 4sq check-in. Crispy and chewy, nice subtle garlic flavor. I really liked the tomato soup – thick and delish and perfect with the super cheesey grilled-cheese.

Sushi and spicy pork bulgogi bento at Joy Sushi

This place wasn’t that great. Watery miso soup, mediocre sushi, oily spicy pork bulgogi and slightly high prices…

Gyro meat with Rocka salad and Melitzanosalata @ The Olive Pit

Sporting healthy Mediterranean fare, we came here a few times. The food is solid, fresh and tasty. I really dug the Melitzanosalata which was an eggplant dip not unlike baba ganoush.

"The Works" cheese steak from John's Philly Grille

Never had a cheese steak sandwich until some local peeps brought us here. Holy schnicky, I’ve been missing out! The bread was great and the amount of meat, more than generous. Served piping hot with a mix of mushrooms, onions, peppers, and cheese, this was bite-after-bite nomalicious. Garlic-pepper sauce is readily available and that just takes the sandwich to a whole new level. Some coworkers decided to add bacon to it…. God bless ‘em! Out of all the places I’ve eaten at for lunch in the area here, John’s Philly Grille is #1 in my book. I will miss it for sure…
