Dish With Trish is having a burger kind of day!
Stout’s Truffle Shuffle burger hit the spot along with sweet potato fries and a big giant pretzel (off the menu) served with our choice of 3 sauces: Horseradish (my favorite), Chipotle Ketchup, & Bell Spread.
After all that yumminess, the great thing was being able to walk it off and sight see while in Santa Monica. Location is in the heart of everything from the beach, 3rd St. Promenade, SM Pier and much much more!

Dinner with Cheri Oteri at her favorite pizza joint Vito’s Pizza in West Hollywood on LaCienega!
Vito is the man! Everybody knows him and everybody loves him! People go there just to see him. Vito walks his pizza dough and talks to it. He is a legend! He has been asked to be on shows on numerous occasions and he always turns it down. He says that’s not for him, he is a pizza maker. Can you believe it? someone who can care less about being on TV. Its all about his pizza!!!
We started out with Greek Salad, Baked Ziti, Bread Sticks and Wine. Yes, we started out with all that before even diggin’ in to our pizza!
Start with a basic margherita, add meatball fresh tomatoes and jalapenos. named after the man who liberated Mexico
Cheri O “Chi Chi”
Cheri left the neighborhood and came back talking crazy ideas about pizza. Vito fought her on it evidently she won. This one’s for her fresh arugula, thinly sliced prosciutto, gorgonzola and toasted pine nuts on top of a white pie.
And Cannoli for desert!
All are must haves! They do have pizza by the slice as well as beer and wine!

A very different kind of pizza!!! It was so tasty!
I was at a birthday party recently that had the food catered. Everything was so unique. Nothing i had ever had before. Interesting combinations.
One of the other pizza’s they had was blackberry jam/Ricotta cheese. I had to try it. So glad i did!!!
PlanCheck is known for their burgers, regular and veggie. I especially LOVE the mushroom/truffle/swiss burger. I was craving it all day and had every intention of having one when i got there. Walked in and sure enough they had something new on their menu, at least i had never seen it before, tuna tacos!!!!
Burrata is a fresh Italian cheese, made from mozzarella and cream. The outer shell is solid mozzarella while the inside contains both mozzarella and cream, giving it an unusual, soft texture. It is also defined by some sources as an outer shell of mozzarella filled with butter or a mixture of butter and sugar. It is usually served fresh, at room temperature. The name “burrata” means “buttered” in Italian.
