  1. Fast French Food For About the Same As A Carl’s Jr. Meal

    I like Mimi’s. While many of the reviews in this blog will be based in one local area or another, Mimi’s is all over the USA. Best of all, if you’re a poor sucker like me, it’s one of the best semi-French places you can afford to eat at.

    They have great to go options. Their food is inexpensive and you get a good quantity. So it’s awesome to run over and pick up some Mimi’s on the run rather than hitting a drive thru and it’s way healthier.

    The muffins, French onion soup and fruity bread are fantastic. They are all exceptionally rich and flavorful.

    My favorite dinner dish is the scallop ratatouille ravioli. It has a few huge scallops, salmon, multi-colored ravioli with an excellent ratatouille filling of tomatoes, eggplant and other yumminess.

    For breakfast, they have a mind-blowingly awesome stuffed French toast with a cream cheese and orange marmalade filling. The whole thing is covered in a selection of fresh berries and powdered sugar.

    Considering most of items are under $15 a person, this is a good safe bet for lunch or dinner whatever metropolitan city you are in.

    I’d happily give Mimi’s a 4.5 out of 5.

  2. Travel: Discount Chinese Food in East San Diego

    San Diego’s East County is a haven for cheap hotels and homes, but many of the restaurants are only sub par, especially their Chinese and Japanese food. Enter P.G. King Chinese Cuisine. P.G.’s is a tiny restaurant in the heart of San Diego’s La Mesa community. The food takes a little influence from south of the border and the resulting Chinese food with a touch of Mexican flair is truly fantastic.
