Carnitas’ Snack Shack

When a restaurant has the word “shack” in its name, I’m never quite sure if it’s actually a shack. In the case of Carnitas Snack Shack in San Diego, it actually is a shack. Sort of. You line up and order at a sidewalk-facing shack,... Continue

Bunk Sandwiches

I heard Bunk Sandwiches has some of the best sandwiches in Portland, but they don’t start serving said sandwiches until the afternoon so I was left to order one of their breakfast offerings. This was actually from over a year ago, so I don’t remember... Continue
