In Old Town Tustin had its annual chili cook-off today. Various individuals and organizations present their chili to be judged for Cash and prizes Well, Miss Bobbie's is a low carb cafe that sits in the midlle of Old Town. They always make low carb chili, even though they never compete. Well, Hubby and I went to Miss Bobbie's for her chili and it was THE BOMB!!! She usually makes meatless chili although she has also made chili with black soy beans and that too is very good. But she makes her chili with steak, tomatoes, chilis etc. She topped it with cheese and it was so good. Big chunks of meat makes the best chili...I might make some for dinner tomorrow.

Chili done right is low carb. "Anyone who knows beans about chili knows chili has no beans."

This was chili to die for. She only makes it for the chili cook off. I think she is just doing it for her LC friends so that we can have chili done right. I split a bowl with my husband. At the cook off you get just get to tasted the various chilis. What is cool, I have to say, is there is a booth that serves Buckeye chili. Yes, this is chili made from Ohioans ( We're Ohioans !!! ) Go Bucks!!!!

Still, Miss Bobbie's has superior chili.

I just wanted to post a link to her shop. But I found this page with several restaurant ratings. Ivy's cafe which is listed as #3, is just around the corner and it features a quasi vegetarian menu. You can get chicken salad there. But notice Miss Bobbie's which is #8 on this page, has a rates higher than Ivy's.

I just had to post this photo of the place that Black57 is talking about. Wouldn't it be great to see something like this in your neighborhood?

What is so nice about this cafe is it is a little meeting place of low carbers. Most of us getit but there are some newbies that come in and are schooled on what LC is all about. My family is considered her extended family. Bobbie knows Jimmy of course. She has books on low carb and nutrition to read there over a meal or a low carb root beer float. It's a great place to have in the "hood".

No such luck anywhere around here. I get bewilderment, disagreement, condescension, acknowledgement and sometimes understanding but rarely acceptance.

I'm so glad you posted this. I keep meaning to go by there, but never have the address with me when I'm in the general area. I'm going to load it into my GPS now.

I live in a huge urban area and we have NOTHING like this. There are 100,000 bars and clubs, but no hole in the wall. We had one close to my house, but they didn't make it. Sad.

We finally made it to the shop this weekend. What a great place! Unfortuantely, we had just finished lunch so I could not try any of their smoothies or wraps or chili.

We stocked up on some harder to find items. I was pleased to find the Hood low carb milk, as I haven't seen it locally in months. I want to compare it with the heavy cream version I've been making. Was able to find many more DaVinci flavors than I have ever seen at a store, and stocked up on some favorites. Got a new thickener I want to try. Will report back when I do.

The whole area looks really cute. I think some exploring may be in our future.

Dawna, I just saw this. I am glad you enjoyed the joint. Next time go hungry but don't expect to see the chili. She only makes it for the Chili Cook Off but then she never competes...except once and she won! Sorry I missed yoou but I am glad you made it to Miss Bobby's. Did you see Bobby by the way?

I didn't see Bobbie. I was actually hoping I'd run into you there, but what are the chances of that? My husband and I had a great time. He kept pulling things off the shelf and saying "what about this?" and "what about that?" and reading labels to me. I finally got him to plant himself at a table and just brought him the things I wanted to purchase.

We visit my parents in OC nearly every weekend, so I'm thinking we will probably be stopping in there regularly now that we can find it.
