I will be passing thru Sacramento en route to the Gold Country, and am curious to get introduced to some interesting food. I will have 2 opportunities for meals (up to the foothills on Friday and then on the return, Sunday).
My tastes are eclectic: I very much enjoy a great taco (especially carnitas) or birria at a Mexican restaurant. I am also quite fond of Vietnamese food, and would enjoy a great bowl of bun bo hue, for example.
And I understand that there's a Punjabi community in the foothills -- does that also mean that there's an interesting South Asian Punjabi restaurant to enjoy?
I will be travelling from Oakland, but will gladly drive a bit out of my way for an interesting meal.
thanks for your tips on chow-worthy eats.
