Breakfasts are big in Bakersfield! Literally and figuratively. Biscuits and gravy? Gotcha covered. Pancakes? Some great ones here. Omelettes? Now we’re talkin’!
It may be an odd name—Red Grill Onions—but that’s the only thing odd about this delightful addition to Bakersfield’s downtown dining scene.
In a city stuffed with good Mexican restaurants, Red Grill Onions Mexican Café & Bar stands out, judging by Yelp and Facebook reviews.
In the many years Mike Stepanovich has been writing What’s Cookin’, hundreds of amazing dishes, from countless local restaurants, have been described in mouthwatering detail. We thought it would be fun to go back and take a look at some of the standouts from years ago in a neat little What’s Cookin’ Flashback. Jump in the time machine with us!
A dining trend that emerged five years ago or so has hit Bakersfield with the opening of The Kitchen at 1317 20th St., in downtown Bakersfield. The concept is that diners come for a gourmet meal that they help prepare themselves, then enjoy while staff serves it.
My New Year’s resolution is to dine more often at Valentien Restaurant & Wine Bar. We’ve been fortunate in Bakersfield to have this gem of a restaurant with us for 14 years now, and it just keeps getting better and better.
Bakersfield’s maturation as a city is perhaps best reflected in the diversity of cuisines available. I’m always thrilled to discover exciting restaurants in town, and share my finds.
