We walked up and down the streets for a while before deciding to head to lunch. Ben was on a mission to hit up a Triple D establishment and printed out a whole list of options! We ended up at Chino Bandido
The options are almost overwhelming! Luckily, the employees were super patient and helpful (we were not the only ones that looked like deer in
head food lights). I went with a combination – jade red chicken, salad, black beans and rice
And the cherry on top that made me fall in love with this place… every order comes with a free cookie! You have a choice of chocolate chip or snickerdoodle. Even though I’m a chocolate chip girl I realized they are known for their snickerdoodles so I went with one of each.
Here is the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives Chino Bandido episode:
My life’s mission to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie continues though Chino Bandido’s was too crumbly and thin, Paradise Bakery’s was not sweet enough and the chips weren’t good quality chocolate. My “Goals for Life” list is not getting any shorter – I better find that cookie soon!
Oh, I have a race to run tomorrow! I better organize my stuff and get some sleep!!
