After shopping at the Oyster Trading Company, as well as a few Downtown stores in Salinas, we grew quite hungry. We found great deals and scored some really cute stuff.
It was just after 11 and we walked to First Awakenings, a convient corner restaurant. I was craving something hot and comforting so I went with the "Beef Encounter" - pretty much a French Dip with cheese and mushrooms. The au jus was very tasty, a great beef flavor. Salad and potatoes were served with it but I was content with all the food from my sandwich.
I had a few bites of my Mom's Calamari Sandwich - It was not your typical calamari that is all chewy this was the real deal. I loved eating it with the tomato, very light and satisfying.
Jennifer ordered the Huevos Rancheros and she just loved it. It was too much food but she ate until she just couldn't do it anymore. But, she did say it was just awesome.
My Mom and Jennifer. I love them so much.
