The Last Few Months in Food, part 5

Slice of Big Sur pizza from Pizza My Heart.

Barbecued steaks.

Chocolate It's-It.

Boneless buffalo wings from Wing Stop. Wing Stop is quickly becoming one of Katie's and my favorite places to eat. The simplicity of their menu - chicken wings, chicken strips, fries and little else - plus the overall quality of their food, and the fact that most if not all of their locations are open late ensure that we pay them a visit regularly.

A side of fries, also from Wing Stop.

Sandwich: Ham, turkey, roast beef and Swiss cheese, with potato chips.

Sandwich: Ham, turkey, roast beef, pastrami and Tillamook cheddar, with fries.

Tiramisu cake, from Katie's birthday.

Watermelon, green apple and strawberry shave ice. We bought this exquisite mound of ice and sugary syrup from a vendor at a community festival. The vendor's stand included a machine with twenty or thirty dispensers, each dispensing a different flavored syrup. Were I a millionaire, one of my first purchases would likely be just such a machine.

The following three pictures were taken at Buffalo Bill's Brewery, Pub and Restaurant in Hayward, California. Like Wing Stop, Buffalo Bill's has become one of my favorite places to eat (and drink) over the last several months, thanks to a variety of beers both on tap and in bottles, and a menu full of delicious food. Great place! Perhaps a review is in order.

Buffalo Bill's Hayward Hefe.

Buffalo Bill's Pumpkin Ale, the perfect brew for a chilly autumn evening.

Buffalo Bill's hot pastrami sandwich, served with blue corn chips.

More to come!


  1. That pastrami "sandwich" looked like sandwicheS!

  2. I have never been to Wing Stop but heard good things. I am not big on wings, but I see they have chicken fingers so maybe I will give them a try.

  3. Miss Sassy Pants: Good catch. They're small though.

    MrManuel: I'm not big on wings either, unless they're boneless. There are few things I enjoy less than gnawing on a greasy chicken bone for half an ounce of meat. My main problem with going to the Wing Stop in Antelope is that I can make a left on Elverta and go there, or I can make a right on Elverta and go to House of Chicken and Ribs. It's much easier for me to eat at Wing Stop when I'm in the Bay Area as there isn't a terrific barbecue place nearby competing for my dollar.
