Chevys Fresh Mex and Sherlock Holmes

Ron and I enjoyed a relaxing day in the city. First we hit the Ferry Plaza (sadly no farmers’ market today) for a nice stroll and a delicious cup of coffee from Blue Bottle Coffee Co. then wandered back downtown near Moscone Center to have lunch. We ended up at Chevy’s Fresh Mex since we both hadn’t eaten there in a long while.

I had their Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad. Surprisingly quite filling with all that chicken. Could have used a tad bit more dressing.

Ron ordered the Taste of Chevys, a platter with one beef and one chicken enchilada, one chicken crispy taco, and one chicken tamale. Also served with rice, your choice of beans, and a sweet corn tamalito. This was a very large plate of food but then Ron didn’t have breakfast like I did.

I have to mention that their menu is pretty cool, it lists the nutritional information for most of their dishes, including protein, carbohydrates, fat, calories, sodium, etc. You can also find it here at and look for other restaurants in your area. I’m not sure which other establishments are participating but I’m sure the number will grow with our health conscious community.

After lunch we headed over to Century Theaters at the Westfield Mall to catch Sherlock Holmes. Although the reviews sort of imply that the movie wasn’t very good, I still enjoyed it for the most part. The difficult parts for me were the language (sometimes I couldn’t understand the accent) and the length (sitting there for over 2 hours was not comfortable). I liked that there was a solution to each little mystery and that Holmes seems quite neurotic.

By the time we left the theater, it was a bit drizzly outside so went for a bit of shopping then headed home to call it a day.
