You’re in Davis? I loved that town, I went last year to visit the UC. So many pretty cows. And nice people!


Yep! I moved to Davis from L.A. 4+ years ago for grad school. I try to get back to L.A. when I can (last year I was there for 6 months). In the meantime, I live vicariously/deliciously through the FTC board. I definitely miss the L.A. food landscape! I’m still getting to know my local culinary surroundings up here (and on a student’s budget! :sweat_smile:)


Stater Bros. had the eggnog- haven’t looked for the other flavors.


Sprouts recently started carrying both the Broguiere and the Straus version. I bought both and haven’t had time to do a side-by-side tasting.


How’s the food situation up there these days? I think I probably had 100 super burritos from guad’s in my day…


I’ve done it. Brougiere’s beats Straus in taste, whereas Straus barely edges out Brougiere’s in creaminess.


That’s 100 more than I’ve had! Is it worth trying at least once?

If I had to pick one word to describe the Davis food scene, it would be mediocre. Variety is slowly increasing, perhaps corresponding to the large percentage of international students attending UC Davis, but quality is slow to catch up.

I go to Woodland when I’m craving Mexican food, and I need to explore more of Sacramento’s foodscape. I’ve bookmarked several Vietnamese restaurants in Sac to try, but I don’t get there as often as I’d like.


Yeah it’s worth it. I actually think it’s pretty good, but again, it’s been years and I might be having rose-colored memories.


Brougiere’s was like a melted chocolate milkshake to me. Super rich and creamy…more chocolate-y, too. I really enjoyed how not too sweet Straus was…I could probably have that as a dessert on lazy nights and be just fine.


Leo’s has had a truck in Wilmington, which is much closer to me, for the last 4 months and I only learned of this right now. :expressionless:
