What I Ate: April 14, 2009 (Erik's DeliCafe, Won Ton House)

Our last day of packing (I think). The movers are coming in about 6 hours to pick up our stuff and I think we just finished. Around lunchtime, I made another trip out to Goodwill and then swung by Erik's DeliCafe to pick up Pilgrim's Progress sandwiches for both Tina and myself. Erik's is another Bay Area establishment that I'll miss and the Pilgrim's Progress is our favorite sandwich there. I got Clam Chowder with my sandwich while picking up Chicken Vegetable Rice soup for Tina.

For dinner, we chose to eat at Won Ton House (1205 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA‎ - (408) 984-8668) where we both ordered the House Special Combination Clay Pot Rice. The clay pot rice comes with "Chinese Vegetable and Soup of the Day".

They serve a variety of Chinese food at Won Ton House with some "specialty" foods ranging from traditional Chinese to frog legs (for many of these, you'll have to bring someone who can read the slips of paper posted on the walls with Chinese all over them). What we always end up getting is the Clay Pot Rice. Sometimes I'll get the black bean spareribs over the rice and sometimes the combination. Since this is our last time (in a while at least) eating here, I felt I wanted the variety of the combination.

We also ordered their Shanghai String Beans which were crispy, salty, and spicy - just the way we like them.
