mmm-yoso!!! is the name of the blog. It's about food. Writers here are usually Kirk, Ed(from Yuma) and Cathy. Today, it's Cathy's post.
I started writing this post in November. Then things happened and even though The Mister and I have been to Pangea Bakery Cafe regularly, there have been some 'technical difficulties' regarding phones, cameras, computers, hinges and various other mechanical things and the final photos are recent. You'll have to take my word for it that there have been visits in the interim.
The weekend before Thanksgiving. Here we were. And what is that man doing on the front patio? With a grill next to him no less!
Notice the poster under the cash register...grilled items.
Notice signage in the store...
The nice Young Man cooking held open the foil for moment as I snapped a photo. You'll see what this was...skewerS-that's a clue.
Condiments used for the various grilled items.
Yes! Grilled whole squid: the same as was being served at the First San Diego Night Market until it sold out within the first few hours...
This was HUGE (it cost $8) and tender, brushed lightly with a sweet teriyaki-like sauce before and while grilling. We took a good portion home and used it for dinner.
Of course we also bought some baked goods...
Here it was, leftover squid with the ham and cheese bread and squash. Ah, the balanced diet of the Holiday Season...
Here are some bakery items we've purchased- that's a ham and cheese baked in a bread and a cream filled almond pastry.
The Thai peanut and lime chicken plate ($3.99 that day, regular $6.99 - and worth it at that price) is quite large. Fresh veggies stir fried with some of the rice, the bright flavors along with some crisped rice and cucumber and pickled onion... and the sauce had a nice kick...could taste coconut milk in the sauce-it was almost a curry...lemongrass more than lime flavors and a touch of heat that would creep up on you. This was very good.
We've also enjoyed some day old pastries (half off; there's a small red mark on the packaging) and good cup of coffee for easy breakfasts here. That's the raisin walnut bread and a cherry filling in a soft Danish pastry.
It's going to be Valentine's Day soon!
Drop in and see what the menu will be on your visit...
