Happy Hour at the mall meant a burger ($5.00):

... at the Cheesecake Factory.

This double-pattied, caramelized onion-strewn sandwich was a cheap and cheerful chomp as was the stack of fried chicken sliders ($5.00):

The summer rolls ($5.00):

... and the ahi tower ($6.75):

... were not flavorfully fulfilling but the meat mits fueled us as we high re-tailed our way back to the mall.

We enjoy any pastry case populated with M.H. product but the lemon bar ($3.50):

... was less puckery than our gravitational orbit elicited at Equator Café.

The cookie ($2.50):

... was more our thing with crisp edges and butterscotchy bites washed down by delicious cold brew.

For us, there is a bit of a clinical vibe to this caffeination corner, but it’s still a fine fortification fortress.

An invasive species has now taken root in America. Our earlier encounters of this frozen floral pedal-er required a nose-coned journey, but today, we plucked our pretty Amorino cones ($6.75 each) from a Marin mall.

Chocolate, vanilla, coffee and stracciatella:

... made up our melty manipulations (that took a bit of time to assemble):

... but we enjoyed these creamy corsages at this icey sculpture stand.

What is up with not having any tables? Folding chairs were in formations away from the lights in the Red Hill Shopping Center for this evening’s Off the Grid:

... where we shivered in the dark over a roll ($17.50):

... from the Crab Lab.

This crustacean cradle had sweet onions to accent the swell shellfish sided with salad and potato chips.

The burger and fries ($16.00):

... from Meathead:

... were good, garlicky grub. Avocado, fried egg, Cheddar, and bacon decked out the fine bovine while pecorino and herbs studded the spuds.

Pacific Puff’s:

... mini classic ($2.00):

... profiter-rolled us out of the lot with a chocolate glaze and cream filling.

We liked the grid goods at this gathering more than the one on Sunday, but this Tuesday turnout needed surfaces for the sustenance.

A burger patty ($11.50) basking on an island of rice:

... was my kind of curried cushion at Tani’s Kitchen.

This cohesion of cow and carbos hydrated with curry called for diligent dispensing of ingredients for balanced bites (with no surplus starch, sauce of steer.)

The sign up sheet outside of this teeny tucker turnout herds hankerers to their heaps of homey helpings.

Marin’s measley mobile market offers some resistance with a few Off the Grid exposures a week.

Sunday’s inoculation location is the Country Mart where we sampled the culture of Cheese Gone Wild.

The grilled cheese:

... and tomato soup combo ($9.00):

... was a sourdough griddled nursery nosh with a booster of cheese to the fruity fluid. We were immune to the charms of the sandwich and side salad, but did not have the same resistance to the tomato tonic.

The Lobsta Truck’s:

... prescribed sleeve of drawn butter-bathed meat ($14.00):

... wasn’t as tender as we prefer. The seasoned mayo option (rather than the butter) may have perked this portion but we didn’t feel this pincher.

This host site harbors a variety of vendors so perhaps there will be others that infect our interest need transmittable chow.

... late afternoon bar menu allowed us to Phil-up on their famed burger ($16.00):

This bloody bundle bordered with bacon was a chompably cheesy with a detectable dollop of horseradish. Their swell shoestrings tied up this cravable combo.

Sweet and salty ‘stachios ($8.00):

... were nutty nosh nuggets of maple syrup, bourbon that panned out with a couple oysters ($6.00):

... chopped and topped before a broil to crust up these chowder-filled shells.

Brussels sprouts ($9.00):

... were sensationally stripped of nutrition with a trip through the deep fryer. These cheery chips of cute cabbage are lemon-lilted, saline-showered, required rations.

We will have to launch a full investigation of their menu soon.

We were game to set out to Nourish at Harbor Point.

This tennis club turnout netted us some chicken wings ($7.00):

... that were standard issue (but without the traditional blue cheese dressing and celery) and a burger ($10.00):

... that we washed down with an IPA and Stella.

There was nothing hostile about this waterfront rest stop, but the service seemed focused on the courts.

We flew past the State Bird queue:

... to their next door nest, The Progress:

... where we marked our multiple choice menu with six selections served for communal consumption.

Erlenmeyer-flasked fluids:

... fortified our food as we amused our bouches on bites of yacón, squab liver pate on honeyed toasts, pork jerky with peanuts, white Cheddar crackers with apple butter and rosemary, tempuraed smelt and radish over tonato:

Lamb tartare:

... was a sesame and pumpkin seeded, tumble of turmeric-tinged kohlrabi, bottarga and scallion that we ingrained on light, crisp, black rice crackers:

... before we Tysoned some aural appendages in a romanesco dress-coed salad of herbs and cauliflowered ears:

Roti was pecorinoed and truffled in a buttermilk basin:

... that inflated this fine flatbread with flavor.

Pork broth cascaded over fermented sausage, trout quenelles and pumpkin mochi in a savory Asia-antic soup:

Crispy squid and merguez mingled in a octopus and bean bound surf and turf tangle:

... before we made mits of lettuce lined with chili paste and squab:

This perfectly pink poultry placated our palates.

The staff was knowledgable and efficient and was kind enough to discretely relocate us when a seriously scented customer created an overwhelming perfume perimeter.

We loved The Progress and will have to work our way through more of the menu soon.

We stalk bean businesses in the San Rafael area and got jacked on some Nova Rosti wares.

Their cups of French Roast and Blue Dragon:

... were both perky potions (with the slurpent Franco-filing the other option.) Although not one for our rotation, we appreciated this friendly factory.

Utilitarian baked goods soaked up our solutions at this Kerner coffee corner as we continue our quest to slay our caffeination curiosity (Red Whale is next).
