Tecate Grill

Looking for someplace new to try, and thinking about Mexican food, we settled in on trying a place that has been around a while, but we had never been to, or for that matter, even seen before....Tecate Grill

 Located on Spokane's northside  at 2503 W. Wellesley  we didn;t know what to epect, but the place looked busy..  there was also customer in the parking lot that had just come out, carrying a to-go container.  Geo asked her the proverbial question..."How was the food?"
She gae the restaurant a rave review... and in we went!

We were promptly greeted, seated and genuinely treated as welcomed guests.

We were even given the "low down" on various menu items and our server offered to answer any questions.   We ordered three items between three of us...

Arroz con Pollo,
Seafood Tacos...
One is fish and one is shrimp
and Taquitos

Muy Bien!

My favorite food was definately the shrimp taco.

 I liked the pics on display too....

I also like that they have veggie options on their menu...

Playing the Fork Game

 And now for the fork game.....

See the forks to the right?

The way they are placed represents a number.Can you guess what number they represent?

Not sure?  Look again...

Need another perspective?

Did you guess yet?
Do you know what it is?

It's a 5!

Sunnie's Fro Sun Yogurt

Who can resist a cold fro yo treat after a long, hot summer day? Not I.  On one particular hot summer evening, we thought to try "Sunnies."

Sunnie's Fro Sun Yogurt is located at 2225 W.Wellesley in Spokane, east side of the shopping center where Walmart is.   It is much like the other local, popular, self-serve yogurt shops in town.  They offer samples of
their yogurt, post various fro yo eating ideas,
offer a wide variety of toppings and customers pay by the ounce for their tasty treat, but there were a few things I found to be a bit original.

The first difference, was the flavor.  I noticed a difference immediately. All the yogurt flavors had the same distinct flavor experience, so I figured it was part of the brand's uniqueness. Another difference was  that there were some interesting toppings that I have not noticed at other places... like freshly sliced bananas and bacon bits. .(Would you have thought of bacon bits as a dessert topping?  That is an original to me!) This place even  boasts that they try to accommodate various dietary needs by serving Non fat. Lactose free, gluten and dairy free options, even sorbet.  No kidding, these people ever serve fro-yo that is" kosher!"

They had this flavor too... Candy Bar Smash.

I tasted almost all the flavors and finally settled in on three.... strawberry vanilla and chocolate with hot fudge, peanut sauce and slivered almonds on top.  Mine is the one on the right.


With all the choices of cold yogurt-y dessert bases, toppings and the fun summery atmosphere, it's evident that Sunnie's strives to make customers feel welcomed and appreciated.  There is even music on the patio!
