First you have to start out your morning with a good breakfast. The Hampton Inn where we stayed offered a free breakfast from 8am to 10am every morning. There was always a mixture of cereals, fruits, yogurts, muffins, waffle maker, and other assorted hot items.
Here is a sampling of cheese omelet, maple smoked sausage and waffles. The food was ok, but the room was always very crowded. I would rather have a little room to navigate than be squeezed into a small area of hungry people. Next our travels take us to Laguna Beach to the Fishermans Restaurant on the pier. For lunch it is a nice cold Seirra Nevada Pale Ale and shrimp tacos.
Great dining right on the ocean. Tacos and beer where reasonably priced, and very tasty! I would suggest it to anyone who loves seafood. After a day of beach combing, we ended up at Balboa Beach and Perry's Pizza for a slice and jug of beer. I guess the place has been there for a long time. Nice peice of pie, and one tasty beer!
Next day was our trip to Disneyland and California Adventure. After a breakfast at the hotel (see first photo) we ventured on the the happiest place on earth. A lot of food themes in the park, but only had one meal while inside the park.
One very large corn dog!!
We took break from Disneyland and found a local place called Hof's Hut. I do not believe there is a relation to David Hasselhof. Had a great Sam Adams beer battered fish and chips. Also, when we where leaving we spotted this desert. A chocolate brownie made to look like a burger and cinnamon sticks made to look like fries.
Later that night with a full blown case of the munchies, we took a ride down to the nearest hole in the wall taco shop in Buena Park. Picked up some great chicken and steak tacos for $1.50 each!
Last day in town, one more breakfast at the hotel,(see earlier picture). After a few hours of beach combing we decided to get a our last meal before we hit the road. Found a great place called Mutt Lynch's. This place has a big burly dude out front carding people who want to enter....keeps the riff raff out. Once inside you sit at a wooden picnic style table complete with everyone carving their name into the tables. First we started out with a "white trash lemonade" which consists of Pabst Blue Ribbon over ice with lemons. Next came the Marvin Lee Aday burger. For those who don't know Marvin is also known as "Meatloaf" This is a meatloaf burger wrapped in bacon on a onion roll. I will be going back to Mutt Lynch's every time I make it to the beach, great food, great beer, great surroundings.
Last but now least, on the way home, we stop in Barstow for a Oreo Shake at Bob's Big Boy. Nice way to cool off in the heat of the high desert!
