Restaurant
“Delicious ramen noodles, teriyaki, and poke bowls with tons of assorted toppings. If you haven’t been here before ordering can be complicated. Don’t be surprised when owner walks off if you don't get it right the first time. She’ll come back. They also own the Boba shop next store, so it’s not unusual to pick up your boba then head over to ramen. ”

Dive Bar
$
“One of our favorite date nights is starting at Independent Wine co for a glass of wine and they also have a short list of appetizers available as well. Then we walk down to Sonora Brewing Co or Sonora Thai for dinner...then cap off the evening with a drink and hopefully some live music at Serventes Saloon and play on their vintage shuffle board table. (Their lavender lemon drop cocktail is my favorite!)”
