Brilliant Breakfast

On my last morning in San Francisco this winter, I went to the Green Chile Kitchen. I want to live next door to this place. Seriously. The service was fast and friendly, the restaurant itself is open and bright, and the food is incredible. I ordered their big ol’┬ábreakfast burrito with the spicy green sauce (it was half off because of some promotion they were running!), and as soon as I was finished I wished I was still eating. It was just so good! One was more than enough, though, and the Watermelon Agua Fresca I ordered was a refreshing and light complement to the substantial burrito. I didn’t think we’d find a Sunday breakfast (and on New Year’s Day at around 10:30am) that was served up with such a small price tag and such a short wait. I know San Francisco has a ton of great food options, but this one’s pretty high up there on the list if you ask me.

Golden Nugget


So technically, Nugget is a grocery store in Davis, California, not a deli. That doesn’t stop it from being my absolute favorite deli of all time. I’m not kidding. I love Nugget. I make a point of stopping in whenever I’m even remotely near Davis (or Sacramento, Woodland, Vacaville, etc. where they have other locations). This particular location — the Covell Road location in Davis — is my personal favorite. Their ingredients are just so good — super fresh, top quality, and they have a huge variety of toppings. They also toast the sandwich for you if you want, and that makes the whole thing all warm and delicious. I sat outside in the sunshine to eat this sandwich, and it was a wonderful lull in my travels. If you’ve never been to Nugget, you absolutely must go in — for groceries (esp. artesian cheeses and chocolates), for beverages, and definitely for a sandwich. I’d move back to Davis for this store alone!
