  1. Don’t go there too often but they have a delicious carne asada roll! It’s not really carne asada but it has jalapenos and seared tuna. Yum.

    It’s funny b/c I used to come here WAY way way back when it was *THE* place to be thursday nights. I thought their dinner menu was really pricey and the food so-so. But the lunch bento looks nice. Is it priced about average? And yeah , the parking there is complicated. I think the free parking is on the other side of the building and man, it’s a LONG walk.

      Funny, I totally forgot to find out the price. I’m a bad, bad blogger. We had to go up two elevators and walk through the hotel lobby to get here, otherwise you have to walk up crazy steep ass hills (no, thanks).

      “free” cookies. We deserved those cookies, man. Plus the cucumber water! I miss you too! I’m doing some free birthday food for lunch today. 😀
