The Fresno Bee Got it Right!

A couple of months agao I saw Mediterranean Grill listed in the People's Choice insert in the Bee. My friend and I even tried to go there for dinner but it closes by 2:30. So today I got a chance to try Mediterrean Grill for lunch. I loved it!!! For all those who know me, I am very hard to please in the restuarant arena. I mean if I am going to pay for it, it better be better than mine;).

Mediterranean Grill totally fits that bill. I ordered their Lebanese Chicken & Rice. The chicken comes with the yummiest garlic saice. Normally I am not a big sauce fan out because it is usually heavy and either overly salty or sweet. But I do have to say that sauce is what makes a good dish because it is all about layering flavors. Well, this was delightful!!! The sauce was a bit spicy and creamy with a hit of acid to brighten it all up. The chicken and rice was also served with a Fattoush Salad. That was great!!! It is fresh and just great. It is also a lot of food. I ate half of everything for a large lunch and then ate the salad with dinner. The rice and chicken will make a good lunch tomorrow. So it is definately worth the little over $9 it cost.

So if you are over by the Office Depot and Fresno Community Hospital, you have to try Mediterrean Grill!!!

Local Deals

I recently found a site with lots of local coupons (and we know how I love a deal). Sudden Values has a ton of coupons that are just for local businesses. I haven't used any yet. So when you do, come back and let me know!

Downtown, Parking, and Thrift Stores

I commented the other day on a blog post about the fact that paying for parking is a problem (in my opinion). A nice commenter (Joe Moore) put together a great plan for a day of thrifting and fun all with free parking! I totally putting this plan into action soon and maybe with a few friends who have also been wanting to go to thrift stores! So what stops you from going downtown? Is it the parking?

Wordless Wednesday: Old Buildings

This is a picture I took awhile ago on the Fulton Mall. I love the beauty of the old buildings and it grieves me that so many people in Fresno have never seen them. I know that this is a problem in many cities and in their downtown areas. I would love for there to be a walking tour downtown that talks about the history of these buildings!
