Karen started us off by going to Lees Philly and got the Gogi beef taco, and I went to India Jones for the Samosa, an order of nan bread, and a chicken “Frankie”, a roti rolled up with curried chicken, cilantro tamarind chutney, chopped onion and egg.
Martin went to (Argentine) Che Truck and ordered the grilled chimichurri steak salad, and I got the pork empenada (the el Fidel) to split with Karen.
The empenada was a little too spicy for Karen, so we also split an order of noodles from Lomo Arigato.
For dessert, Martin and Karen split the Goober Doober, boo-yah made of a chocolate chocolate chip cookie + chocolate chip cookie that sandwiches a mint chocolate chip ice cream.

Karen and I took today off from work to recuperate from the trip. For lunch we drove to Irvine for Piaggio, who was parked on Discovery near the Spectrum.
Karen had her usual two empenadas, chimi rice & zucchini. I had the skirt steak taco with chimi sauce, caprese empenada, with rice & veg, and two pulled pork sliders. Its great to be back home!!
