REAL EATS – The beat on where to eat! MY NEW FOOD BLOG


The beat on where to eat!

Hello! Thank you for reading my first installment of REAL EATS, the beat on where to eat. I thought I’d combine my love of good food with my passion for Real Estate and blog about local restaurants. I mean, what better information for a Realtor to know than where the best restaurants are and if you can walk to them from your house!   I plan on sharing my favorite spots up and down the San Francisco Peninsula and beyond. I hope you have a chance to enjoy the amazing food our communities have to offer.

I’ve bookmarked all these restaurants (and more) on my yelp page, please feel free to visit:

Chapter 1 – The Refuge – 963 Laurel Street, San Carlos

So for my first entry – I chose one close to my heart and soul for a couple of reasons. One – it’s silly – but the building was my former Karate DoJo. Oh the memories of testing for belts in the same space I am now sipping a beer and enjoying a fine sandwich – is a riot. I love watching communities grow, how buildings change and repurposed. Anyway – let’s get to the food!

When I first discovered that a restaurant in my favorite town – San Carlos – was featured on Diners-Drive-Ins-and-Dives – I was so excited. When I saw the episode, my husband and I couldn’t wait to head down there.  Let me tell you – we were not disappointed. On our first visit, hubby got the Ruben and I got the Toasted Slaw #19. Oh boy! The moment that plate hit the table, it smelled so good, I knew I was in for a treat. The bread was perfectly toasted, the sauerkraut on the Reuben and the Slaw on mine were well seasoned. Good cheese, great flavor… But the meat – the House Made pastrami – the lacquer – was spectacular! I am drooling just thinking about it. Needless to say – we’ve returned several times and enjoyed bringing new people to appreciate their treats. I even tried the grilled Cambozola Sandwich. Good Lord, the gooey blue cheese with caramelized onions, matched with the apple and lemon-tomato marmalade. Heaven. Delicious Heaven. Oh it comes with a salad too. And a side of guilt for eating something so decadent – hahah – but worth every bite!

I managed to snap two photos in my numerous visits. Seriously – the food is that good I forgot I want to take a picture; the camera doesn’t stand a change against my hunger. Oh, they also have a plethora of awesome beers from around the world. So truly a treat for every single one of your taste buds.
