We’re huge fans of the monthly Third Thursdays Food Fest in San Bernardino, and today’s (November 17) event brings two more reasons to be excited.
Two trucks are making their debut: 13 Ice Cream and Street Kitchen!
Street Kitchen is new to us, but we’ve long been fans of 13 Ice Cream’s delicious traditional — and non-traditional — ice creams.
What to expect? Besides the usual strawberry and cookies and cream flavors, how about spinach, kale or broccoli? No? How about marigold, saltine or garlic?
Here we go again.
Back in 2013, a real estate website, Movoto, compiled a list of “America’s Worst Cities for Food Lovers,” and San Bernardino landed at the top of the list.
Last week, it was WalletHub’s turn.
The personal finance website posted its list of “2016’s Best & Worst Foodie Cities,” and guess what?
Yep. San Bernardino loses again.
But … it’s not as bad as Fontana, apparently.
The long-gestating Super Pizza Hut opens today (August 30) in north San Bernardino.
During a pre-opening military appreciation day on Sunday, I was able to take a peek at the new location.
I was told that the first-of-its-kind restaurant was the nation’s largest Pizza Hut, and I don’t doubt it.
Del Taco recently introduced its new platos at select locations in San Bernardino, Redlands, Colton, Loma Linda and Riverside.
The platos come with a choice of either a wet burrito, two fish tacos or two street tacos, plus cilantro lime rice, beans and chips and salsa.
Prices range from $6.49 to $7.49.
It appears to be a second go-round for Del Taco’s platos. They were also tested about a year ago in the Sacramento area.
If you’re interested in trying them for yourself, head to one of these locations:
- Colton: 834 W. Valley Blvd.; 1010 E. Washington St.
- Loma Linda: 24898 Redlands Blvd.
- Redlands: 1624 W. Redlands Blvd.; 602 E. Redlands Blvd.
- Riverside: 3487 Arlington Ave.; 4407 Brockton Ave; 6333 Riverside Ave.; 1255 University Ave.; 3199 Van Buren Blvd.
- San Bernardino: 272 E. 40th St.; 2665 S. Waterman Ave.
