Sam’s No. 3

denver cowparade

Last April, my work brought me out to Denver, Colorado.  Jon had a few days off, so we decided to extend the trip and make it a vacation.  Flying in only took 2 hours and I must say… the Denver airport was really beautiful.  I didn’t take any pictures (Updated 1/9/14 – I guess I did take a picture!  Check it out here), but if you’ve been there you’ll know what I mean.  It was bright, airy, and felt really fresh.  We quickly got our luggage and jumped onto the bus.  About 30 minutes later we got off at the Market Street Station and waited for the 16th Street Free Mallride.  This 1.5 mile shuttle was comfortable, clean, ran every 30 minutes, and on top of that it was free.  We really need to get some of these shuttles back in Los Angeles.  After settling into the hotel (which was only a 5 minute ride on the shuttle), we headed off to find us some dinner.  After Yelping, we decided to eat at Sam’s No. 3.  The restaurant was big, with lots of counter seating, booths, tables and even had a sports bar towards the back.

Fried Cheese Curds – They were so good.  It was like eating mini mozzarella sticks but with a cheesier flavor. Plus I loved the extra chewy texture the curds had.  Paired with marinara, it was delicious.

Sandbar and Grill

At the beginning of Monterey Municipal Wharf there is a restaurant that is tucked under the pier, called Sandbar and Grill.  It was pretty busy so we decided to try it out.  Inside, it was very small but had a cozy feel that I loved.

Calamari, Tender Pieces Pounded thin and Fried Golden.  The BEST calamari we’ve ever eaten.  They were so tender and crispy.  Since then, all other calamari we’ve eaten have now been compared to this standard.  We still reminisce about how delicious they were… lol
