Funfeasts is about enjoying and exploring life - through food. It's an attempt to chronicle my feasts of fun and the many tasty bites experienced along the way.

Pastrami Paradise

The Refuge
963 Laurel Street
San Carlos CA 94070

What we ordered: reuben sandwich, a salad of frisee with blue cheese dressing, fries, cherry soda and a Tripel Karmeliet (beer, for those of us not in-the-know.) What we paid: about $53 with the tip and tax. By the way, we ordered ONE sandwich and split.

The food: loved the reuben with it's amazingly tender, perfectly spiced meat but I thought the potato salad and pickle on the side didn't really do this plate justice. The potato salad seemed a tad common and tasteless compared to the pastrami. However, the fries we ordered arrived piping hot and crispy while the cherry cola was a nice (non-beer) option for the meal.

The Refuge seemed to be quite the hot spot on Thursday night with most of the tables/booths full and the patrons talking at rather high decibels in order to be heard. Overall, a fun, delicious
dining option in San Carlos and quite possibly one of the best reubens I have ever tasted. Just don't expect ordinary sandwich prices!
