    Restaurants in Sacramento??

    Primal Fuel
    Everybody can start their own threads if they want, but with regards to Sac/North California, what are some really good restaurants? Not just flavor wise, but quality ingredient and at least semi-primal wise.

    I like Pronto and Panera for the soup/salad combo. Pronto is hit and miss, but they also have nice blue plate specials on occasion. They're also a block away from my apartment.

    Dad's Kitchen has some pretty good food. It seems like everything is made from scratch.

    Zocalo's has some incredible smoked pork. Pochita Pibil I think it's called. It comes with guac, sauerkraut or some type of cabbage, and a second sauce. It also comes with quality rice and beans to stock up on those carbs.

    Muntean Soups and La Bonne Soup Cafe are a couple places I want to hit up, but they always close before I have a chance to get over there (5 pm).

    Any other places people know of? Obviously, there's a few places like the Waterboy or others that offer grassfed beef, but it might be $50 per dinner.

    We don't get out to eat that much. When we eat out, usually we go to El Torrito. I have fajitas without the beans and rice. In the summer, we sometimes go to Fresh Choice. They now have a high percentage of local produce.

    There are lots of farm to table restaurants. I just haven't explored them. Can't really afford to.

    The Sacramento Bee food critic is fantastic. But he is covering the whole spectrum of food from four star to barrio walk-up Mexican stands and food trucks.

    It's on the expensive side of things, but I had the most incredible piece of pork I have ever eaten at Ella's the other night. Great cheese plates, too.

    Edit: oh and Orphan in East Sac for breakfast. Avocado scramble is fantastic, as are the cornmeal blueberry pancakes.

    Thanks for the tip. It's close to my house but I never would have found it since I never go down C.

    I didn't realize there were so many forum members in Sac.

    Good call on Fresh Choice. That's another favorite.
