Our random meal of the day brings us an order of The Fonz. The Fonz starts with 3 Hawaiian sweet rolls grilled as a bun. We then place a hot Italian sausage and layer it with pastrami! We then melt mozzarella to complete this wonderfully fantastic random meal. YUM!

Our random meal of the day brings us some sushi! I am taking baby steps. We start with a Bento Lunch Box that you can fill with three different choices. I started safely with an order of shrimp and veggie tempura. Then I kicked it up a notch and choose an order of California rolls. Then I boldly choose a Crunch Roll. The crunch roll is consider a fusion sushi roll. It starts like a California roll and is filled with crab, avocado and cucumber. We then kick it up a notch by adding shrimp tempura in the roll and then layering an eel sauce before sprinkling the top with crunch. The crunch is made of bits of fried tempura batter. I wonder what the next step is after a crunch roll?

Our random meal of the day brings us a sandwich that comes out of a deli and liquor store combo. It really feels more like a liquor store than a deli but the food sure tastes like it is a deli. It is really a strange sensation ordering from the counter here but my buddy ate here a few times already so I had to make the pilgrimage with him. We have for today an incredible Pastrami Sandwich. It is one of those just perfectly hits the spot random meal. From the patio area, you can gaze towards the Pacific Ocean.

We have for our random meal of the day a treat that I have been waiting for, the Ritter's Famous Pan Roast. We have it House style. The house style adds shrimp, crab, clams and lobster to the tomato cream base creole dish. I had the rice served on the side as it is normally scooped and placed right in the middle. Sometimes the wait is epic but well worth it.

We have for our random meal of the day an order of "Steak & Eggs". This is a fantastically prepared French meal. We start with a pan-seared flat iron steak that is topped with caramelized shallots. We then top the steak with a perfect hen egg prepared sunny side up. We then complete this random meal with a side of French fires or Poomes Frites. Today also happens to been National French Fries Day and the fries completed this fantastic and delicious random meal of the day!
