    Lunch today was Quesadilla made with the remaining queso fresco and cotija (from Enchilada battles I and II). I have to say, I think regular old cheddar/jack mix shredded cheese makes better quesadillas.

    Agree. I think they get gooier ( more gooey?!? ) and hold things together than the traditional Mexican cheeses...T

    Found a very cool mom and pop middle eastern; bakery, grocery, and restaurant all in one. We had a kabab sampler and a veggie plate. Every item here was fantastic. Even the rice was pilaf style with some veggies cooked down in it and was full of flavor. This place rocks, we will be going back soon.

    My chili and Fritos. It’s been forever since I’ve had Fritos. It was good, but think I’d rather keep them separate. Fritos are so good by themselves.

    I need to start physically following you around because the dishes you're consuming are right in my wheelhouse. Also, +1 for the dim sum - could literally eat dim sum every day of my adult life - and +1000 for the Indian cuisine. Personally, it's THE most overlooked/underrated food that's readily available to everyone; the stigma that people unfairly give it is an edible injustice. Blindfold an Average Joe, feed him/her Indian food (Alu Gobi, Butter Chicken, Malai Kofta, Beef Vindaloo, etc.) and I guarantee they'll want more.

    I have Frito pie more often than I should as it's super quick for the times I run home for lunch. I use far too much shredded cheese on mine though.

    Had chick filet for the first time a couple of days ago. Was okay, seemed a bit fresher than typical fast food. Good waffle fries. Portions were a bit small. I try to only eat fast food when traveling all day long distance...go to is Wendy’s, but will add this place to the approved list.

    That’s awesome. I’ll remember that trick. I couldn’t get over how good the Fritos smelled. It’s been years and years since I’ve had them. Comfort food! Eating all these new potato chips with odd flavors. Mediterranean, blah, blah. Get back to basics.

    I'm quoting this because it's from the very first page of this thread, 11 years ago.

    I used to eat two freaking lunches. I don't know how I stomached it.

    I also eat Chipotle all the time and never eat at Freebirds because their price to serving ratio just doesn't match up. Although I may try it again soon as it's been a while.

    Yeah, if I eat a single big lunch, I'm lethargic all PM. Two? I'd be catatonic.

    Be careful what you wish for! I've been on a BBQ crawl with AzIt.
    You'll eat a ton, but it'll be great grub! :p

    p.s. Agree with you about Indian.

    I miss NC vinegar based BBQ. It’s the best! One of these days I’ll get back down there.

    It actually wasn't heavy since it was just protein and veggies. Most of the time it was a fruit and a veggie. So no carbs other than whats in the veggies. I'd eat at 11 and 3 if I remember correctly.

    I was in the first year or more of working out regularly and trying to gain weight but also eat pretty healthy. When everyone else was eating cake I would be eating that. They hated me. lol

    That diet literally led me to hate chewing. I got tired of eating. That went on for years.

    Dave, tried Baiz near Downtown Phoenix. ****ty location, but it was really good, some of the stuff in the market is super cheap too. $2.50 for pizza size pita (or maybe a different kind) bread.

    For lunch today, I had Roland's Market cheese quesadilla and I added chicken. The owners are well-known local chefs. One is Chris Bianco and he owns a prestigious pizza place here, so obviously, food was good here too.

    We will try that Baiz. I posted above #1681 about the Market/Bakery...it was outstanding (way better than the Baiz I went to). Give it a try...

    We went to Roland's a couple of months ago...and I have to say I was unimpressed. I love both Bianco and Taco Chiwas, so my expectations were high for some sort of bizzare fusion of those two cuisines...and found "meh" boring burro's and quesadillas and flatbreads. Very sterile place imho. May try it again someday and hope for better from those guys...

    Oh, speaking of Bianco...I went to the one on Camelback last month and it reminded me that he is still the king of Neapolitan pizza...I can't wait to go back. The Sonny Boy is so good! (they all are I guess)

    Yeah, I'll agree they are a bit boring, I took half of the quesadilla home and spruced it up and added some pickled jalapenos and it kicked it up. Their cilantro-jalapeno salsa is really addicting though.

    I went with coworkers my first time and had some kind of green chile dip which was really really good.

    Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich with a coke for my post workout meal.

    Haven't had one in years and it was okay. Not as crispy and tasty as I remember it. Could be the location I went to.
