moving to Yuma... where to eat?

micapu | Apr 30, 2008 09:29 PM

I've done a search on here for ideas on where to eat (thanks a mill for all your posts, Ed!) but I'm wondering if there just aren't any worthwhile other-than-Mexican restaurants there? I saw the blurbs about Yummy Yummy and Hwy 95; where else can we go? We love to eat, and we love variety.

Where's the best pizza in town? (I lived in NYC for several years, so my standards are pretty high as far as crunchy-melty crust, acidity of sauce, etc. Plus husband makes TDF pizza at home, so really this is for when we're being lazy) Deli sandwiches? Italian? Mediterranean? Indian?

Are there Farmer's Markets? CSAs? What's the best-quality market in town for Hispanic foods like plantains and fresh fruit (soursop, mangos, mammon)?

I read on another board that the best Mexican bakeries are in Somerton, is that true? I'm looking for the best Tres Leches cake for my son's birthday in July. And where do I find the best fresh baked bread from scratch? (not the par-baked stuff)

Finally, I'm new to the board so not sure if this belongs on here or a different forum on the site (?) but if anyone can recommend a great route for the drive between Sacramento and Yuma, with suggestions on places to stop for chow, of course, that would be awesome. We're moving ourselves (so, we're driving a moving truck) sometime the last days of May and it'll be my eats-anything husband, our somewhat picky 4yo, and I.
