Ukiah report

As promised, am posting a brief report of our eats in Ukiah this past weekend. Caveats: we were travelling with 10 month old twins. Had take-out sandwiches and goodies twice from Schat's Bakery and Cafe. Love this place. Our "large size" turkey sandwiches and one veggie sandwich (avo, tomato, sprouts, cukes, spinach, carrots and honey dijon) were fresh, delicious and on very good bread (sourdough roll and sliced, and multigrain) with excellent crust and moist crumb. Chocolate and yellow cupcakes were birthday perfect with fluffy frosting and sprinkles. With drinks and chips (Kettle brand) we ate for under $20 each time. Also tried the sheepherder's bread, a nice french-style loaf, cranberry scone (big, but not overly sweet or rich) and bear claw (a miss for me--too much marzipan filling). Take out from the Porter Street BBQ: small tri tip sandwich came on roll dressed with garlic butter. Nice tender thin sliced meat, needed sauce. Pork ribs, coleslaw and beans: didn't taste the ribs (again sauceless), slaw was fine, beans rocked--very flavorful, shards of BBQ meats, and chili type sauce. Take-out from El Azteca: Chicken enchilada and beef taco got thumbs up from spouse, as did rice. Refried beans not to his taste. Came with a good size side salad, packaged separately. My a la carte chicken burrito w/salad was very good. The burrito was small (fine with me), covered in a delicious "Spanish" sauce and cheese and featured a smear of beans and lots of flavorful shredded chicken, period. I deconstructed it since the tortilla got soggy and ate the cheese/sauce and filling. Very tasty. The side salad was a nice mix of romaine, ice berg, red cabbage, carrot and cilantro. Chips were homemade and thick, red salsa was h-o-t. Another meal for $20.
