    Aww what a cute place! Fresh pasta is so good =) And a whole fried fish is awesome! S also doesn’t “like seafood” except for fried fish which doesn’t taste too fishy, haha.

      Hi Jinxi – We were surprised that it was like a whole filet like that! Yeah, Jake also likes things that aren’t too fishy, too. Fried fish definitely qualifies! It just tastes like crunchy goodness.

  2. Very very nice!!!! I like seeing all of that fresh food prepared and displayed like that.

    I would have done the same thing (‘baby’ the tart). perhaps in for a future road trip (which of course ends up being a food crawl for us foodbloggers), you may want to bring a small cooler with ice for your purchases. it really helps. 🙂

      Hi CC! I was really kicking myself because I had really considered bringing a cooler and then decided to not bring one. What a mistake! Won’t be making that mistake again, you just never know what you might come across!

  3. Also tried to go to Cheeky’s when we were in Palm Springs and then gave up because of the ridiculous wait…

    I have been eating at Clementine for years now . First in their smaller original place and now in this wonderful space with all the retail ! Chris and Jennifer the owners couldn’t be sweeter . We were just there this afternoon for lunch ( I had the Tuna and Shrimp stuffed Avocado ) and I came home with a fabulous jar of Preserved Lemons ! The short Rib Panini is off the hook ! We love our Clementine family !

      Hi Christopher – Thanks for your comment! I wish I lived closer so I could try more things off their menu. If I’m ever in the area again, I know I’ll be stopping in!
