Chapter One – Is it Still Good?

Although Chapter One still seems to have it’s presence, does it really have it’s soul? Well, not sure, so let’s take a look at what we found coming here after an eight-month absence eight. We arrived at around seven and had no trouble being seated at the bar – a normally busy part of this…

Sushi Ray…A Ray of Sunshine

This little place was found in Hemet, a tiny little town no bigger than your armpit where people don’t know how to drive.  It looks like a place that would be a lot of fun to hang on out in if it was more crowded, but I showed up on a Monday at the moment…

Joe’s Sushi … for the average joe

I arrived at Joe’s Sushi on a Tuesday by their 11:30 opening.  A few people were sitting in their cars in the parking lot, waiting, which I took as a good sign. The interior of the restaurant was clean, well-maintained,  and well-decorated.  They were playing alternative music (my favorite) at a tolerable level.  There were…

Oishii Sushi in Riverside

  The Captain and I stopped at Oishii Sushi in Riverside after filing some documents at court.  Oishii is another one of those types of sushi places that is low key.  If you want to enjoy good sushi but you don’t want to dress up, go to Oishii. The food was very good.  We both…

Sake 2 Me Sushi … Sake 2 Me Some More

Tommy’s is a small burger restaurant at the corner of Anaheim Street and Broad Avenue in Wilmington, California.  Also known as Original Tommy’s, this…

The Chowder Barge

How could someone describe a restaurant that floats on an old barge, is “rustic”, has a really basic atmosphere, but has some of the best clam chowder that I’ve ever had?  Great! The Chowder Barge is a restaurant located in Wilmington, California that is within Leeward Bay Marina.  This part of Wilmington is along a…

Want a Great Burger? Try Charlie’s Best Burger!

Today while we were traveling around town taking care of errands, we found ourselves in the middle of having our car repaired during lunch.  Being limited in our choices for lunch, we looked around for a place to eat and noticed that some guy named Charlie had opened a hamburger place across from where we…
