6 Comfort Food Favorites

Via Roma Pizzeria in Rocklin is small and intimate, and the owner treats you like family (the good kind!). Their Fettuccini Pollo—flat-ribbon pasta mixed with mushrooms, garlic, herbs, white wine and sliced chicken in a decadent, cream-studded sauce—is the best. As an appetizer, their Braised Meatballs are fantastic, too.”

Placerville Public House’s menu dedicates an entire section to macaroni and cheese—the ultimate comfort food. My fave is their Pub Mac and Cheese, with its creamy, savory, beer-cheesed penne that’s crisped golden and crunchy and served au gratin style. They also serve other mouthwatering varieties, including Caprese, Pulled Pork, Bacon and Bleu, and Spinach and Crab. And if you’re feeling guilty after consuming all that cheesy goodness? Fret not: Each order is served with a veggie-packed side salad.” 

Taste of Europe in Placerville is the epitome of comfort food. Almost everything is scratch-made with a whole lotta love, which comes through in both presentation and flavor. The Sauerkraut Soup—with its rich broth chock-full of sausage, onions, potatoes and kraut—envelopes your taste buds and leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.”

Biscuits and Gravy is my go-to guilty pleasure, so when a restaurant makes them from scratch and succeeds, I’m a loyal customer forever. The Window Box Café in Rocklin passes my B&G test with flying colors. Fluffy yet sturdy enough to hold up to the lightly spiced gravy, I have to stop myself from licking the plate. Combined with the bright, cheery interior and friendly service, it epitomizes comfort in every way possible.” 916-672-9730  

“The Classic Meatloaf from Selland’s Market-Café tastes like home—only better. They use beef and pork and mix it with tomato, onion, cheddar and a blend of savory spices, resulting in a tender, tangy loaf that puts Gram’s version to shame. Order a side of Mashed Potatoes or Macaroni and Cheese (who are we kidding, I’m ordering both) and you’ll be in classic comfort food heaven.”

“The Chilaquiles Poblanos from Mexquite is the perfect dish for cooler months (or, for me, year-round!). Crispy corn tortillas (simmered with tomatillo salsa and cheese till they slightly soften) are topped with two over-medium eggs, onions, cilantro, a dollop of sour cream, queso fresco and a side of refried beans, resulting in a hodgepodge of flavors that keeps me wanting more.”
