Last week I was invited to a tweet-up event the the Stone Fire Grill Restaurant located at Fountain Valley, California. I live in Ventura County, so the drive to get to the restaurant was long and with the traffic in Southern California at 4:30 pm it was even worst. But I can tell you that after being able to taste the food everything was worth it.
I went with my dear Colombian friend @comiendoenla and we had a lot of fun. @comiendoenla was convinced we were heading to the location at Pasadena, and after 40 minutes of driving from Glendale, she was wondering where was I taking her. We finally got to @Stonefiregrill
The place is cozy and people are very friendly. The tweet-up was located at the Patio next to the beautiful fireplace. Food was well presented and there was also a table for drinks.
The menu was really good. It was a taste of their best dishes. @Stonefiregrill offers a variety of foods both for meat lovers and also for vegetarians.
@Stonefiregrill new salad the Keen Green is wonderful. I have never tired something similar, and since I am an avocado lover, I was just in heaven. They also offer a BBQ Chopped (meatless) salad. We also got some Garlic Mashed potatoes that had just the perfect touch of garlic.
We got some pizza as well. The Mesquite Grilled Pizza was so good I wanted to have another slice, but with all the other food still on my plate I just resisted. The Tomato Basil Pizza was a good option for those that are vegetarians. Great pizza. I really loved that the sauce was not heavy and it was not greasy.
And of course you cannot go to a Grill restaurant without having some meat. @Stonefiregrill had Lemon Garlic Chicken Breast and Mesquite BBQ Tri Tip. Both tasted really good. I can only imagine how good their Salmon is.
And to end the wonderful night we had some dessert. Carrot Cake and Cheescake with blueberries. Both were great but being a cheescake lover, I have to say that was my favorite.
Since I found out that @Stonefiregrill has several locations in Southern California, and they even have one in Thousand Oaks (just 20 min drive from home) I will be visiting them soon, because their food is great and the place is great for a family dinner.
As a side note, I got to meet very nice Tweet people and enjoy good conversation.
