The Chef: Elizabeth and Gracias Madre
The Menu: A never-before-heard-of sandwich called the amazing Gracias Madre lunch special torta with a side of delicious Caesar salad and house made pickles!
The Goods: A little group headed out from the VNHQ today to one of our absolute favorite lunch places, Gracias Madre. Yes, it's possible to eat this exact same sandwich every time you go there and be totally satisfied each and every time. Today we enjoyed the company of Carmen, one of GM's chefs, who tipped us off to a new dessert: a pumpkin cake served with dulce de leche ice cream and a vanilla sauce drizzle. Holy heck. Whether you're celebrating Dia de los Muertos, the Giants' World Series win, or you just want a yummy piece of cake, we definitely recommend picking up a piece of this insanely delicious cake.
