I've read every recent-ish post on this board about the Monterey/Carmel area and most restaurants suggested seem to be a bit out of my price range. But I'm certain some of you know of wonderful "hole-in-the wall" type places! I think this fits, what I believe is, the true "Chowhound spirit".
So with that in mind...
I'm taking my boyfriend up to that area, via Big Sur from Ventura, next weekend for his first time.
$8-$12 a person.
Any and all types of food.
-Lunch in Big Sur or Carmel
-Light dinner in Monterey, or drinks and appetizers
-Breakfast in Carmel/Monterey, maybe Sunday brunch
-also any cool little snack-ish places, must see (or eat!) places, ice cream parlours, bars, etc.
THANK YOU FELLOW CHOWHOUNDS!
(Hope I didn't give TOO much detail!)
