When Life Gives You Limes, Make Margaritas
When I was growing up, we went to the Casa Del Rey in Temple City all the time. Imagine my sadness-followed-by-euphoria a few years ago when I found out that, while the Pepper Tree Grille on Baldwin had closed (sniff-sniff...), it would be replaced by a Casa Del Rey (hooray!). Quite the consolation prize, I can tell you!
As far as I recall, the restaurant that was in this space when I first moved here was the Sandwich Stop. Does anyone local remember that place??? Ahhh - the sandwiches... the pitchers of beer... I think they were even the originators of the Chicken Bowl, which Pepper Tree continued to sell until they closed. But! I must finish this ramble, and get to the point. What is the point??
Raspberry Mango Margarita, pictured above.
I believe that is all for today.
