Want to thank Michael for the love and hospilality today!  He was closing up but made an amazing effort to make my wife and i feel at home.  His food is amazing!  A must try in the area!  We are from San Diego but will definitely come back. Bless Charlie and Sina
This is like some sort of mystical salad shrine up on a hill near the college. While I've been known to make the occasional pilgrimage to Pluto's in Palo Alto, this is the real deal for greens, including a hermit-like curator who only comes out specific hours of the day. Or season? It might help to repeat a useful Romaine or Arugula chant to open the doors, not sure. Didn't try, cause I was able to grab two robust salads before time ran out. A beet-forward salad and another of some local lore with slivers of Asiago. No set goals, I think these may have been semi ad hoc concoctions from a rough plan. Nonetheless delicious and possibly including an addictive herb making me crave another batch today. Or maybe just a garlicky crouton or two. All the same. Anyways, as Nacho Libre would say, "Be grateful, Juan Pablo. Today is especially delicious." And I can affirm it was.
Love everything he cooks! Highly recommended. Suggest to try going there earlier like 11am ish to catch him.
