It’s been a good trip, both work-wise and, more importantly, food-wise. I’ve had some great meals this week at some of the coolest restaurants in Mountain View:
- Hobee’s – I love breakfast places, and Hobee’s is one of the best I’ve ever found. Great hashbrowns and coffee cake that will make you forget your troubles.
- Los Charros – Thanks to Kristin’s suggestion, I got the best carnitas I’ve had since leaving Tucson. Good carnitas (shredded pork, sometimes flash fried right before serving) are hard to find.
- Frankie, Johnny and Luigi Too – Good Italian food, and the dutch apple pie is to die for. If you go, get the sausage bread and the veal scallopini.
- Sylvia’s – On Castro street, wow, some really really good Indian food. Best butter chicken and lamb roganjosh I’ve ever had. I wonder if they’re open for breakfast…. I could go for a dosa.\
It’s on a plane this afternoon and home. My ankle survived the trip pretty well, although I’m not looking forward to the plane. My ankle needs a good session with ice and electrocution, which hotel ice is just not doin’. I stood too much yesterday while giving my two presentations (well, one with Arun) and now it’s pretty stiff. Oh well, I’ll know better next time.\
Oh, and I think I’m going to Hobee’s again for breakfast this morning unless I can find a Mexican place open for breakfast. I’m jonesin’ for a breakfast burrito.
