Thanks for stopping by mmm-yoso!!! Kirk and His Missus are enjoying the European vacation you've been given a peek into, Ed(from Yuma) is enjoying the end of an era and Cathy is enjoying staying indoors and listening to the radio and weather updates while adding words to photos.
About two years ago, I wrote a post about TJ Oyster Bar, mentioning it might be moving. Turns out that the original location is still open (and consistently busy) and the new location (technically on the same block, around and on the other side of the McDonalds) is also open. I like this location better. It's smaller and I don't feel self conscious when eating alone, which I had occasion to do a few times earlier this year. I was introduced to this wonderful dining establishment by cc, who writes the Pink Candles at Ridgemont High blog.
The outside signage has changed.
As has the look and pricing of the menu. The selection and freshness of the items has not changed.
My comfort item here, the Seafood Pescadilla ($7.99). Served with rice, this Monterey Jack quesadilla is filled with sauteed buttery, garlicy shrimp, scallops, krab and octopus bits.
The shrimp salad ($ 8.50) Romaine lettuce, tomato, avocado, topped with a dozen quite large, flavorful shrimp, Parmesan and a house dressing, this is quite large and refreshing on a hot day.
Another favorite of mine is the shrimp ceviche tostada ($3.75). Chopped plump, juicy shrimp that have been prepared in fresh lime juice with tomato, onion and cilantro. This is always satisfying on a hot day.
I hope everyone is staying cool!
