Four Seasons Gourmet Chinese Restaurant – Davis

Connected to the Chevron station near I-80, Four Seasons Gourmet Chinese Restaurant serves up a small variety of Chinese dishes at fairly cheap prices. There are a few tables available for restaurant seating, but orders are taken at the counter. There was one lady working there to take the order. Be aware, there is a minimum dollar amount for credit card usage.

Today, I ordered the broccoli chicken over rice. The food was ready very quickly and looked very fresh. The flavors were OK, but it did taste fresh. In order to wash it down, I went next door to Chevron to get a very large soda for cheap.

Overall, Four Seasons Gourmet Chinese restaurant serves up OK tasting food, but it is far from gourmet. Prices and location are nice, and soda is cheap next door. If you are looking for a quick, cheap, edible bite in Davis, this is your restaurant.

Taste of Thai

1628 Broadway
Sacramento, CA 95818

Rating: ★★★★☆ 

On a lunch trip, we decided to try out Taste of Thai on Broadway. The restaurant was fairly busy during the lunch hour, but there was a good amount of seating available. There is no parking lot available, so we parked in the neighborhood behind the restaurant.

Today, I ordered the egg rolls and the red curry with pork from the lunch menu. The egg rolls were OK, but there was not much flavor and only a bunch of vegetables inside. The red curry meal came with the choice of either soup or salad. I ordered the salad, which tasted quite fresh and flavorful; however, I was not a big fan of the peanut-based dressing. The red curry arrived on a long plate with plenty of curry and a good amount of rice. There was a good balance between meat and vegetables, even though I only ate the meat. The curry tasted amazing and tasted great smothered all over the rice. The pork was cooked tender and went well with the rice. Unfortunately, since I did not eat any of the vegetables, I left a bunch of vegetables on my plate when I was finished.

Overall, Taste of Thai serves up a variety of Thai dishes with a great lunch menu. Although the egg rolls were not the best, the curry tasted excellent. Service was great considering the size of our party and the food came out in a reasonable amount of time. If you work near Broadway, then Taste of Thai could be a good option for you.

When you think of Filipino bakeries, you need to think about Senorita bread. In addition to their location on Mack Road in South Sacramento, this location in Natomas serves up the famous Senorita bread in addition to a bunch of other Filipino baked goods. Upon entering, I was greeted by staff who asked what I would like to order.

Today, I ordered 30 pieces of Senorita bread. Thirty may seem like a lot, but when you eat 3-6 on each attempt, that is not too bad. If you buy a box of 60 for your office, expect them all to be gone within the hour. After ordering the bread, they quickly put in a batch in the oven to bake fresh for you. After three to five minutes, my box of sweet goodness was ready to take home. The box was very hot from all the hot bread. The bread tasted extremely fresh and soft. There is a slight sweetness to each bite as they melt in your mouth. The Senorita bread tastes best fresh, but they still taste good over the period of a week. The bread tends to harden over time, so just microwave it for a few seconds to bring some warmth and softness to the bread.

Overall, Starbread serves up some delicious Senoria bread. I was not brave enough to try out their other offerings, but I’m sure they would be delicious as well. Each piece equates to $0.40, so the price is OK, but you will find yourself easily eating up quite a few pieces. If you have a chance to visit Starbread, be sure to order some Senorita bread.
