Yo. If you’ve ever hung out at the beach in Capitola, you’ve probably jumped in the long line for a slice of $4 pizza from Pizza My Heart.
If you’re a true customer and not just a lowly shoobie, you’ve probably even paid $7 for the pizza/t-shirt combo! Well, now those killer beach vibes have landed in Walnut Creek. On the corner of Broadway Plaza on S. California Blvd., the moment has finally come.
Even if you’ve never been to the famous location in Capitola, I’d highly recommend riding the swell into this downtown Walnut Creek shop and chompin’ down on a delicious slice and salad. Don’t miss the Maverick’s Pizza, named for the local big-wave surf competition.
Personally, I was super amped to hit it up. And when I ate it (literally, not in the “crashing” sense), I almost caught myself yelling “cowabunga!” There’s no way you can leave this place without throwing down a sick hang loose sign.
It gets 5 out of 5 Mt. Diablo’s from me, dude!
I recently tried the new restaurant on Main Street, creatively named Main Street Kitchen. Luckily the menu was much more interesting than the name. The restaurant features farm to table, local ingredients, and seasonal menus.
To start, I had the Grilled peach salad with Point Reyes bleu cheese, bacon, and mixed greens. It was very tasty and refreshing on this warm evening. For my main course, I chose the fish of the day, which happened to be swordfish. The dish came with a seasonal vegetable salad, consisting of kale, corn, roasted squash, blue lake beans, cranberry beans, and saffron pistachio pesto. It was delicious and filling, without being overly heavy. For desert, I nudged in a peach crisp with almond streusel topping, and house made ice cream. This was my favorite part of the meal, especially the home made ice cream. Yum!
I went there again for breakfast recently, and was able to enjoy the peaceful patio. I had 3 duck eggs, with toast and fresh tomatoes. I have never had duck eggs before, but
they sure were yummy
With its eclectic variety of California cuisine, made with fresh and local ingredients, Main Street Kitchen definitely earned my repeat business. I definitely recommend you check out this great new eatery in town.
