hi and hello
had the chance to take a road trip this last weekend, drove the 277 miles to merced and it was worth every mile driven. the most fun was planning the eats part of the trip and i yelp-ed before leaving. knew we would dinner twice and breakfast once for sure and would snack something yum too. so i yelp-ed merced mexican restaurants and found fina estampa, reading others comments leaned me into choosing
it. with the help of maps even knew the exact directions. we had shrimp meals and each was darn good at a right price. while i can never get enough mexican perhaps my fav is still italian and i yelp-ed that and found strings italian cafe. spaghetti w/sausage is always a perfect meal for me and soup salad added to our dinner. toni getting a kids scoop of spumoni was the right touch to our italian night too. in between those meals we found rollen dounts, it was perhaps the smallest donut shop i ever visited but they had the best donuts i have ever tried. damn wish i had gotten more then just a few. yelp said they were good, i would say they were better then good. our last merced meal was from a chain called black bear diner, we wanted a good breakfast before hitting the road home. it was a breakfast to remember as everything tasted right. ham and eggs, country pots, perfect toast and super-sized homemade biscuit too. i got to share a pancake, it beat the heck out of ihop’s. it is always great to road trip, to go from point A to point B and just enjoy the nice times in between. yup. thanks to yelp i was able to find some wonderful meals too. thank you yelp mucho. yup. signed: meken47.
