Restaurant Buzz

Hello all…it’s been a busy week and it will continue to be that way for the next umpteen weeks or so. Most of my busyness will be keeping me away from the thing I love to do most….garden, ur I mean write on my blog. So to keep you occupied check out this meme I was tagged with from Vegas Princess.

The rules:
1. Add a direct link to your post below the name of the person who tagged you. Include the state and country you’re in.

2. List out your top 5 favorite places to eat at your location (locally).

NUMERO UNO- The restaurant formerly known as Romio’s. We love this restaurant for many things. First of all the convenience. It was the first really good pizza, salad, pasta place that wasn’t a 15-20 minute drive. They have awesome food, wine and beer and whole wheat crust. They moved into this location after the first of the year and had remodeled the existing building, really cleaning up the joint. We had been to their other locations across the city, and we’re very excited to see this one take over what had once been a stinky unclean eating establishment that we had been to maybe once. When Romio’s opened in March we had been there about 4 times when we learned on the news that an Arsonist had brought down our newest favorite pizza place. Bastards, hang on to your matches you freaks!

Oddly enough it’s another pizza joint. Suni’s Pizza and burger’s. Again it’s a closeish restaurant. I just figured something out….we are really LAZY eaters. We like to eat, but it has to be relatively close to where we live. Suni’s is a small family owned restaurant operated by the two youngest daughters. They can’t be much older than 23 and they work they hiney’s off. The food is great, nice little atmosphere, but they do possess a pet peeve of mine in any restaurant…a TV. That will be a topic of another day, so beware.

KOLME This particular restaurant oddly enough is very close to our home. hmmm, who knew!!! Saltoro’s- Seafood and Landfood. This is a an upper scalier sort of eatery and it has a quaint little bar we like to sit at and share appetizers. They offer a tasty spinach salad, topped with deep fried brie nuggets. I know, it sounds gross and fatty, but it isn’t. We usually share the calamari and top it off with the groovy cocktail of the week. Sweet husband is particularly fond of their lamb burger. baaaaaa

QUATTRO For truly excellent burgers we like to go to KIDD VALLEY. They have most tasty onion rings, shakes and burgers. It’s pretty straight forward food and it’s CLOSE to home.

FIVE Last but not certainly least is Leena’s cafe. This is our favorite close breakfast place. They are consistent, have wonderful omelettes filled with all sorts of fresh ingredients, it’s clean, the waitstaff is quick and generous with the coffee and service. We have some other favorite breakfast places, but they are scattered hither and yon, but truly delectable.

There you have it, if you ever find yourself in my neighborhood and you’re hungry and I’m not here to feed you, check out these dandy places. We like em, and we know food.
I’m going to tag the following…play along if you want, I’m not picky, unless I have to travel a ways.

Happy eating!!!

  1. Ooh – I haven’t been tagged for a meme for a while now. If I play this one I’m going to have to expand my area to include Minneapolis, since St. Cloud is nothing but a smut of fast-food chain restaurants. Ok, there’s one or two that are unique – but I wouldn’t call them my favorite places to eat.

  2. Hmm, sadly, there are at MOST five places that I routinely eat in the greater Coos Bay, North Bend area;1) Kum Yon’s (great bento box and blackberry cobbler) 2) Benetti’s (lovely Italian) 3) Portside (seafood! best Halibut steak) 4) Pancake Mill (Breakfast until 2 pm) 5) Lucky Star (dumpish but wonderful General Tsao Chicken). I shall pursue dining in Coquille itself at another time. Erp.

  3. Ah, Portland, home of many fine eating establishments. Burgers, Calamity Janes in Sandy and somewhere near McMinnville, water served in a tin cup. Pizza, BJ’s brew pub on Jantsen beach(close to home but I still have them deliver). Steak, Sayler’s Country Kitchen(by Mall 205) I would drive a long ways to eat there. Italian, MaMa Mia’s Bistro downtown PDX, (first place I ever saw that had Mac&Cheese as an entre’). Breakfast, Jubitz Truck Stop, (Sunday Brunch $15.95 all you can eat, largest selection of any restaurant buffet also includes a free pass to the movie theatre)

  4. Yum! Those all sound like great places to eat, especially that spinach salad. I adore spinach salad and finding a good one is difficult.

    Thanks for doing this meme! It is always great to discover new places in case I ever decide to get off my bum and leave the city.
