Pretzel Pub Chicken Sandwich at Wendy's

We have for our random meal of the day the Pretzel Pub Chicken Sandwich. This is from a fast food restaurant which is a bit amazing. I looks like they took great care in the presentation of the sandwich. I guess since I almost always carry my camera with me, it allows photographic magic to happen when the ambient light hits perfectly.

Found at Wendy's in Burbank, California.

Wine Tasting 2011 Beautiful White Wine Blend at Magnavino Cellars

Our random meal of the day is actually wine tasting of the 2011 Beautiful White Wine Blend. While I did not actually taste the wine as I was the designated driver, it did not stop me from photographing the event.

Pho Tai Dap at Pho Ha Noi

We have an order of Pho Tai Dap for our random meal of the day. It is finally soup weather and I remember that I had a unique random meal about three months ago. The Pho is different as the soups are made Northern style. We have pounded rare steak instead of it normally being served sliced. The noodles are also thick and instead of the thin vermicelli type. It was really a random twist. It is sad to report that the restaurant is now actually closed. Running a restaurant is hard and it saddens me when the decision to no continue the business. It is the chefs that make random meal of the day and I say THANK YOU Chef to all the chefs out there!

Found at Pho Ha Noi in San Jose, California.

Ham & Bacon Khachapoury at Burbank Pizzeria & Pasta

Our random meal of the day brings us a Ham & Bacon Khachapoury. It is funny how this item is spelled so many different ways. No matter how it is spelled, it is still fantastic every time. We start with pizza dough rolled out like a gondola. Another restaurant actually refers to this random meal as the Gondola. We then add cheese, ham, bacon and two eggs over easy. A slab of butter is melted over each of the perfectly prepared eggs. It is a rich and divine random meal.

Tony's Special Sandwich at Tony's Italian Deli

Our random meal of the day brings us the Tony's Special Sandwich. The magic in the cold cut sandwich is how they cut the bread. By making the bread as three layers, it seems to add a unique texture to the meal. Every bite into the sandwich is actually enhanced as you are tasting each individual layer. I actually took the middle layer of the bread from the second half of the sandwich and it actually changed the complexion of the sandwich. This random meal is fantastic with the middle layer as presented.
