Woo hoo another restaurant review! This one is for Turn 12 in Monterey, CA.
My roommates and I have wanted to try this place out for awhile. We always walk by it late at night when we are heading back to our car from an evening downtown. We always forget about it and ALWAYS say we'll try it some time soon.
Well, we did! We went for lunch this week and we were totally impressed!
The atmosphere was fun. The prices were fine. The service was good. The food was delicious!
This place is totally decked out in racing things inspired by Laguna Seca Raceways. Lots of pictures on the walls. There's even a racing game set up in the middle!
Fun Fact #1: There is 11 turns at the Laguna Seca track. Turn 12...get it?
Fun Fact #2: their bar is the longest in Monterey.
We started out with the truffle fries. Yummmmm! They were crispy and delicious and didn't taste too oily.
I had the tomato basil soup with sour cream and croutons. I loved the sour cream and croutons. I wasn't a big fan of the soup. I didn't really know why until Jarad pointed out that it was kind of sweet. So maybe that was it?
For lunch, I ordered the beef short ribs with mashed potatoes and vegetables. My favorites! I loved it!
The boys each ordered the breakfast pizza. It was huge! It is totally share-able. There was eggs right in the center of the pizza. They cut around the eggs, which is a brilliant idea because the eggs didn't make the whole thing soggy. I'm a little too picky for everything that was on it, but it was really good. The crust was my favorite!
They also offer brunch and dinner! I definitely want to go for both.
If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend stopping into Turn 12.
