Back from Expedition

I have returned from my 23 day Denali Expedition and I look forward to returning to regularly scheduled food updates shortly. Thanks for sticking around even though it's been a weak month of posting. Here are some pictures from the trip in the meantime - can't wait to try the new food I've missed while away.

Teton Thai - Jackson, WY

The ever famous Teton Thai made a location change to the Village. Probably a smart move as they now have a real space, though still ridiculously small. Their main business is takeout from what I hear. When I was in Jackson this winter this was our final meal. It was close, easy, cheap, fast and delicious. We ordered a lot of food that magically disappeared by the end of the night.

We started with some good thai spring rolls, and followed that with pad see ew noodles, chicken curry and something else I can't recall. Solid good Thai and nice and spicy when requested. Service can be a bit goofy inside the shoebox restaurant but that's not an issue if you bring it home. Good prices too. A great option for those vacationing in the village.

Food Pictures

I have some older pictures of some meals that I did not or have not blogged about. These are usually quick, one plate meals or places I've already written about that don't need an entire new post. Enjoy.

La Sorella di Francesca - From 1/9/2011. Can't go wrong with the suburban variety of the Francesca family.

Lillie's Q - 1/10/2011. One of a few trips to Lillie's Q, a great addition to the Chicago Q scene. My pulled chicken was good, but we ordered the pimento cheese with bread and I was surprised it arrived cold. My bad. Not something I enjoyed but maybe we were just dumb?

Taqueria Guerrero, Indio, CA - 4/15/2011. Sometimes you get lucky. Thanks completely to Yelp, we stumbled upon this place on our way into town and were happily surprised. You know it's good mexican when there is more spanish than english on the menu, or when the "mild" salsa still burns like crazy. We wish we could return for $0.99 taco days, but we all settled for some variation of tacos with rice and beans.

Milk & Honey Cafe - 4/22/2011. It didn't take us long to return to M&H, this time more for lunch. I went with an avocado and cheese sandwich. More filling than I originally thought. Breakfast items probably a better bet. 

Lastly, a home cooked meal. Jon get's all the credit for our surf and turf of steak and ahi tuna. Sides of potatoes and green beans delight! See, I don't eat out all the time, especially when cooked for (just ask Erica).

Daily Grill - Palm Desert, CA

Even though I’ll be away and completely removed from communication, I will use the magic of technology to have content from past meals appear. I’ll start with a quick lunch we boys enjoyed while in California for the Coachella music festival. We took a leisurely morning to explore the Palm Springs area and walk around the “world famous” El Paseo Drive, a.k.a. “the Rodeo Drive of the Desert.” It was hot and we had nothing in mind to buy so just strolled. After strolling we sat down at The Daily Grill for a nice, outside lunch of salads, ice tea and lemonade – how proper of us.

Our service was great and matched the equally stunning surroundings. Everyone was in a salad mood after some of the junk food we ate at the concert the day before. I opted for the ahi tuna salad, Phil a Chinese chicken salad and Jed a different grilled chicken salad. They were enormous but tasty and satisfying. You do pay for all the good food, bread, and drinks, but that should not be unexpected in Palm Desert, aka LA East. All in all a nice stop on our way to more music, drinks and sun. I’d definitely stop by again next time I need a break from shopping the El Paseo Dr.
