Punjab Palace is an Indian restaurant with two locations in the Riverside area. My friend dragged me along to grab food with him the other day, and now I’m indebted to him forever. I can’t say for the other location, but I went to the one on University Avenue, and they have a great lunch time special (11:30AM – 3PM) where you can get all you can eat Indian food for $9! I tasted a little bit of everything and it was all great, but what I enjoyed the most was the orange-looking curry with chicken in it. Sorry, I’m not an Indian food expert so I don’t know the names of everything, but I can say that for someone who enjoys good food on a budget, the food here was truly delicious!

Have you been eating out just a bit too much lately? I bet those fast food calories have been slowly adding up in your system. Give yourself a break today, and go green! Let me welcome you to a nice and simple grilled chicken salad. This salad that you see above looks delicious, doesn’t it? It’s actually quite easy to make. Plus, it’s healthy and most importantly, BUDGET FRIENDLY!!

First of all, of course, you would need some lettuce. I chose red leaf lettuce because it was healthier than pure green ones.

Second, you would need some chicken breast. You can get pure chicken breast literally at any nearby grocery store.

Third, is a salad dressing of your choice.

There are actually many different ways to make this chicken salad:

1. Boil, then grill.

  • Boil the chicken breast first in a pot of hot water along with some salt, pepper, chopped garlic cloves, and chicken bouillon for about 30 minutes. This will also leave you with a nice and tasty chicken soup! You can save the soup for later use, or just drink it right away if you need a hot pick-me-up.
  • The next step is to season the chicken breast with some salt and pepper, then grill it on a pan with some vegetable oil for about 5-7 minutes on each side. Remember not to grill it for too long, because your chicken breast is already cooked! You just wanted to add some color and grilled flavor.
  • When you are done, simply cut the chicken into strips and toss it over your washed and cut lettuce.
  • Last step is the easiest. Just drip on some of your favorite salad dressing, and enjoy.

In the picture above, I used Ken’s Steakhouse Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette.

2. Just grill.

  • Season your thawed chicken with salt and pepper, or whatever seasonings you prefer.
  • Grill it on a pan with vegetable oil for about 15 minutes on each side on low heat. Just make sure you don’t burn your chicken!

There are also many other ways to make grilled chicken, but these are our favorites. For all you Foreman Grillers out there, here’s a great opportunity to bust that baby out! Whichever way you choose, we know your wallet (and arteries) will be thanking you.

Happy weekend to all, enjoy!

Chicken Pesto Melt

February 1, 2012

Have you been to Downtown Riverside yet?

There’s a really good restaurant there called Phood on Main.

I ordered the Chicken Pesto Melt and it was pretty good.  They also have cool bottled drinks, so I went ahead and ordered one of my favorites, Cream Soda!

The proportion is perfect if you are kind of hungry, but not if you’re starving.  The melt is accented with basil leaves, stuffed with chicken and pesto,  and topped with melted cheese on french bread.  The total came out to only $6.47 which is fairly cheap for the quality of the food.  I’ve been to eat at Phood on Main several times and will continue to come here. It’s a great place to go simply for the environment, but they also have drool-worthy desserts if you’re looking for that something extra.

Looking for a place to stuff yourself with a bunch of meat at a cheap price?
Well,  for the price of $8.99 you can have all you can eat Mongolian BBQ at Mongolian BBQ!
You can find this restaurant at:

25155 Sunnymead Blvd
Ste G-1B
Moreno Valley, CA 92553

They have a good selection of meats, veggies, and especially sauces. They also have rice and noodles that you can throw into the mix (ask the cook for rice, or rather they will ask you).

My first time ever eating at a Mongolian BBQ place was near campus (UCR). I was taught by my friend the art of packing meat and making a vegetable tower. The price of that place was about the same as the all you can eat, with what I believe was the same quality. I no longer have to see the cooks shake their heads in disapproval, and I can now enjoy eating a filling meal at a cheap price.
