That was all a pipe dream you tried to foist on us a couple years ago...you couldn't find Kenya on a map. Show us the pics.

Any decent restaurants in Nairobi? Eat any ostrich eggs? Can you imagine a six ostrich egg omelette....take three men and a boy to carry it.

I posted pictures from it the day I got back.

I didn't eat any ostrich eggs, but I had some ostrich meatballs, and some zebra, and crocodile, and camels.

I was only in Nairobi for part of the time mostly I was 15 miles or so outside of Nairobi.

Ted's in Laguna Niguel for breakfast.
Ted's has an excellent Bean and Cheese burrito. They put Avocado in (without asking) and it is an excellent post-swim feed.

I'm not very adventurous when it comes to eating exotic stuff. I once ate bison...it wasn't all that good. I have this New England meat and potatoes kind of food culture that I still carry around with me. If I'm hungry, I want to know what I eat will fill me up, and that it tastes good going down.

Ted's portions are over the top....the stuff isn't eactly healthy, but when they have to put the hashbrowns on the plate with a shovel, you know you've hit the jackpot.....soooo good.

They had a good American burger place.

They actually have some good beer choices there too.

They can probably thank the Brits for the beer.

Any idea what they used in the burgers...was it beef? Speaking of omelettes....they are a universal restaurant choice....you can get an omelette pretty much everywhere.

Beef I assumed, it was upscale and basically made for the tourists. Most the time I lived off of soup and then whatever I wanted for breakfast (made a bomb breakfast burrito a few times).

Lunch I ate was most the poor locals eat which was just cabbage and this weird type of bread thing with rice.

Carbs....brain food....good thinking. I've always eaten what the poor locals are eating my entire lifetime.

He wasn't a big guy from Antigua or someplace like that, was he? Maybe with mufti-colored hair? Just curious. I have a friend who fits the description. There's like 20 black people in OC. How many of them could be named Derrick and sing?
Don't look at me, I just work here.

Could be big guy but not the hair. They played there from early 90's until about 2002. He was absolutely fantastic and packed the joint Thursday-Saturday. Has a brother that can flat out play the strat

Does anyone know of a decent szechuan restaurant in south OC? Cantonese seems to be the only Chinese in the area.
