  1. I remember we were supposed to go here last year and they were closed (boo) so we went to that sandwich place instead! Great lunch specials man! Six and four bucks? You can’t beat that! I want some ravioli now!

      Hi Jinxi! It’s just a little place tucked away on a side street in Mira Mesa. They’ve been doing a lot to expand and more it more accessible and nicer for patrons. Plus the food is good and the prices are so cheap – I love it! Hope you get to visit sometime 🙂

  3. Hmm no frisee, no arugula, I think you have the same salad taste as the bf and my sister! Arugula, frisee, kale, all the more bitter greens are no deal. Have you ever had endives?? I think you would hate them, they are soooo bitter. I like bitter greens but even I cannot eat endive at all.

    I looove mushroom ravioli, especially with pesto, and for $4 thats such a good deal!

      Hi J.S. – Funny, I actually like kale and endives! Haha! I guess frisee and arugula are just not my type of bitter greens 🙂 I also like the endive and arugula when it’s mixed in with other greens, I just don’t like their flavor alone. Frisee though – no deal! The half portion is a perfect size, I always have leftovers when I get the full size.
