Zinc Cafe: Re-spreading the Love
Is it really necessary for me to write a third post about Zinc Cafe, my mom and my favorite new lunch spot in the OC?
But there is a reason why I named my blog "Diana Takes a Bite." Errr, there are probably several reasons, but for the purposes of this entry, I only need reveal one. I love talking about my culinary and restauranting escapades and the food I eat along the way -- regardless of whether it is old, new, borrowed, or blue to my audience. I know my mom probably gets sick to death of hearing about every breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or snack I consume, but I can't help it - when I eat something delicious and exciting, I feel compelled to share it with the people I love!
Zinc Cafe makes me feel super compelled to spread the good word about its menu's deliciousness - especially their quiche plate, that comes with the mini quiche of the day (spinach pictured above), a cup of either chili or the soup of the day (mushroom celery root above), and a heaping portion of their awesome mixed greens with tomatoes and a generous sprinkling of feta. The grand total for all that amazing food is an exceedingly un-whopping $8.25. If that rhymed with "mind," I'd be definitely screaming out, "$8.25? Are you out of your mind?!" But it doesn't. So I'll come up with a new rhyme. "$8.25? What are you, a dive?"
But even if it were, I'd still eat there on an absurdly regular basis. And blog about it. Over and over and over again...
