Basque food
3/1/06, 6:12am

We rode up to Bakersfield and had Basque food for lunch last Sunday.

If you want a different "experience" try this sometime.

The routine of a Basque-American boardinghouse meal is well established, at least at Bakersfield restaurants.
Judging from the outside appearance of the Noriega Hotel, you'd be hard pressed to guess they served food or were even open for business (this decade).

Located in the seediest run-down old town center, across the street from Hobo park/ freight train station is Bakersfield's best Basque restaurant. You can often hear Basque spoken in the bar. The waitresses speak Basque and some speak French.

At Noriega's, where guests have lined up for dinner at seven sharp in the evenings and 12 noon on Sundays for almost a century, you sit at long communal tables side by side with ranchers, schoolteachers and real cowboys. And you eat what you are served.

There were tureens of of very tasty hot broth with spaghettini in it which we enriched with tomato salsa and boiled pinto beans. Then we were passed a big bowl of very fresh lettuce dressed with a simple garlic vinaigrette. The entree was a big plate of oxtails with carrots and potatoes..which was wonderful!....and a potato/fish dish that some thought was good! (I couldnt even stand to touch the dish to pass it!!)

When you're sure you will never eat again, out came platters of pork chops (all you could eat) accompanied by mountains of thick, fresh-cut french fries. Your bread basket and salad bowls were constantly refilled and after dinner, a waitress circulates cool slabs of blue cheese....Oh and the price for all of this was $13.00

We sat around groaning about how full we were until someone mentioned Rosemarys Creamery just around the corner. How could we pass that up? We may never be here again....yeah right! So off we went on our feeding frensy...to have hot (home made carmel)sundaes!

We'd left the house at 9am and got home about 4pm...stuffed to the gills....Great ride up and back and an interesting day.

I think we could work that in.

I've never stopped in Bakersfield, but every time I drive through on the 99, I think of my old dog. Back in the 70's we had a purebred Pekinese named Ming Lin. There's an exit in Bakersfield for Ming Ave...

Right...Ming Avenue is a big street up there. I remember seeing it.

We never used to stop in Bakersfield either. We'd push on to Fresno and stay ov er night there before heading up Hwy 41 to Yosemite. We'd either hit the Bob's Big Boy on Blackstone at Shaw or the Perry Boys Smorgesbord My late grandad was born in Clovis.

I've never stopped in Fresno, either. I've driven through it plenty of times, but I've never gone off the highway there. Sometimes I'll keep going up the 99 through Fresno instead of taking the 41. When I do that, I usually stop in Modesto or Stockton for gas and/or lunch.

I made a day trip to Bakersfield not too long ago to pay off on the USC/UCLA game bet. (yes, I lost and had to buy a sushi lunch for my friend.) That was..what...I think about 90 minutes each way!

The odd part of Bakersfield is that you think that when you hit the bottom of the grapevine that you are there....nope! You got another 45 minutes to drive!

Back then (just after they stopped using stagecoaches ) there was no Hwy 41 cutoff. You'd have to drive across town to reach Blackstone Ave. which turned into Hwy 41 at the north end of town.

I remember one backpacking trip to the Yosemite back country. After a week eating freezed dried stuff, we couldn't wait to hit the Bob's Big Boy in Fresno!

Yep, about 90 mins each way. That sounds about right.

That must have been a long time ago! The 41 through there is now a five or six lane freeway...

Let's see..my memory fails me at my advanced age...Did I write you?

I thought you and Ashley had left for AZ, so I wasn't expecting a quick reply anyway. Thanks for sending the car pics, I'll forward them to my friend, Dave. He used to work for George Barris, by the way.

I had to Google the name to find out who that is. I'll bet my brother would have known, though.

I had beef tongue once. It wasn't bad. That was back in elementary school. One day our class had a potluck lunch, and everyone was supposed to bring a dish of something a little unusual. Also, we weren't supposed to tell anyone what it was until after the lunch. The only two dishes I remember were the tongue and calamari (squid). I don't even remember what I brought.

Yea well..IF you can see to the east you can see some nice mountains!

There is a reason they call the 5, "trucker's highway". It is long, straight, fast...and brown and flat! Great for the agriculture that is grown out there...and great if you are in a hurry to run up the state..but if you want scenery, yer on the wrong road! (I took that trip to Oregon many times..and you SO want to speed to 100mph to get through it...luckily there ARE places where the speed limit is 80.)

Probably. Barris did the Munster Car and the original Batmobile. His showroom and garage is in North Hollywood. You can drive by and see the Batmobile in the window. Its either just east of Lankershim on either Moorpark or Riverside Dr.

Remimds me of one of my favorite scenes from All In The Family. Mike comes home with a tongue sandwish from a deli and offers it to Archie. Archie refuses to touch it and says, "I'm not eating something that came out of a cow's mouth...Edith, make me an egg!"

Are you sure about that? I drove the 5 from Sacramento to the SF Valley a couple years ago and the highest speed limit I saw was 70, which I've always understood was the state's max. I've only seen an 80mph speed limit once, just east of Reno. Most Nevada highways top out at 75, though. I thought I remembered 80's in Arizona from my 2003 trip, but they were all 70 when I went back last year. I don't know if I was remembering that wrong or if they changed it.

Ah! I've seen that. It's on Riverside. I didn't know that was the real Batmobile. I just always assumed it was a replica.

When we went to Gilroy a couple of years ago, we took the 5 and yes, there were places that said "80" as the speed limit. (2 lanes. One where the slow people went and one where the fast people tried to go if they could avoid the trucks trying to get around the REALLY slow people.)

Nope, that's the real deal, and that's George Barris' showroom and garage. There's some other neat cars in there too. I am pretty sure he still has the Green Hornet car too.

Now if you want to see where the Monkee's car was built. Its at Dean Jeffries' garage in the Cahuenga Pass, just at the summit. I think you will see a big outer-space looking vehicle parked outside.

My late grandad taught Jeffries how to pin-stripe and he was also a friend of Barris'.

They must have changed it since the last time I went through there. Of course, I was doing 100 through that stretch anyway. At least the fine wouldn't be as big now...

Cool.

By thw way, I watched a show on TLC last night about Porsche and these replica cars that a company in Malibu is making that are exact copies of James Dean's Porsche. You can even get one with his racing number and "Little Bastard" painted on the back, just like Dean's had. The price isn't too bad too at around $20k.
