Bites and Bellies Full

This past Sunday, the Morgan Hill Downtown Association presented the first ever Bites of Morgan Hill.  The event was put together as an effort to give exposure to many of the fantastic restaurants along Monterey St. in Downtown Morgan Hill.  For $40, participants were given a ticket book and a map to guide you to 11 different restaurants.  In exchange for a ticket, restaurants would offer you a plate of food, highlighting their culinary style.

Kara and I showed up a little early to the event, so we made a pit stop one of our favorite Mexican restaurants to kill some time…


Margaritas at Sinaloa.

Once the event started, we would only have three hours to visit 11 restaurants.  With an average of just over 16 minutes to spend at each restaurants, some would think it impossible to visit all 11 stops.  If you thought that I wasn’t going to make it, you don’t know me that well…


1. Chicken Satay with Chili Peanut Sauce and Tempura Green Beans at Upstairs Jazz Café


2. A Hamburger and Grilled Artichoke from Ricatoni’s


3. Fig Brie Puff Pastry and Calamari at Ladera Grill

By the time we arrived at Bubbles Wine Bar, we figured that we were good on time, so we ordered some Sangria to go along with our food.

What a great event.

Just thinking back on it, my belly is feeling full.

And you thought I couldn’t make it…

Stay Rad,
