#1 - California MOINK Ball Wrap - $5
All great change in America begins at the dinner table. --Ronald Reagan
Four of our big, juicy, delicious 100% Beef meatballs wrapped with hickory smoked bacon and grilled to perfection with a delectably sweet and spicy glaze of smokey good BBQ sauce, all wrapped up in a bed of crisp, cool lettuce, vine ripened tomato and fresh sliced avocado, with mayonnaise and blue cheese crumbles. This wrap can tear down the walls of tyranny!

It's truly a delicious wrap, worthy of a landslide re-election. Sadly though, for some reason this restaurant does not succeed, despite a very loyal following of regular customers. It seems some local politicians did not like the atmosphere and changed the zoning laws.

Gore
Menu entry: California Pulled-Pork Avocado Sandwich: $8.95
Business Model: The restaurant California Dreamin' is a gourmet sandwich shop that embodies the California business model. We serve only the finest ingredients in our environmentally friendly sandwiches. There is no need for utensils as the sandwich can be eaten directly from the avocado skin. The avocados are grown on our own private farms and the trees are tended individually and watered with rainwater collected by hand. Because of this added care, the true cost is approximately $10,000 per avocado; however, because the operation is environmentally friendly, the state of California subsidizes all these costs.

Restaurant fate: Business became so brisk, that California Dreamin' soon opened up chains throughout the state. As each new chain opened, the state debt increased. However, after eating one of the Pulled-Pork Avocado Sandwiches, a California Scientist hit upon a Eureka moment. Returning to the laboratory, the scientist added a pork gene to an avocado plant and created the Money Tree.

JiveTurkey
Today's Dish: Cioppino
Price: $9.99 (Does not include fines and taxes)***
Description on Menu: Dungeness Crab Cioppino served with Sourdough Garlic Bread and Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
History: Cioppino is a San Francisco regional seafood dish started by Itialian fisherman in the late 1800's. The dish usually includes all sorts of seafood such as crab and shellfish in a tomato based sauce. Typically the words "cioppino" and "barbecue" rarely go together but if there is one thing us Californian's like to do (besides drive 100mph through school zones) it is taking a perfectly delicious dish and finding a way to make it even better with live fire! With the beautiful weather and abundance of seafood I felt there was nothing better to represent California in a throwdown than Cioppino! Welcome to my new restaurant, have a seat, and your dinner with be served shortly.

Your Receipt:
Cioppino: 9.99
*** Required State Taxes and Fees
Sales Tax: $5.32
Recycle Fee: $7.22
Sustainability Fee: $17.89
Environmental Defense Fee: $12.11
Parking Meter Fee: $14.99
Prius Owners Subsidy: $16.27
Hazardous Smoke Fine: 3.99
CARB Fee: $7.55
Cap and Trade Fee: $2.73
Union Tax (even though we're not union): $6.84
Food that is not good for you tax: $3.71
Your Total: 108.61
Sorry Cash Only.
Thank you and Come Again!

Lovely esoteric dishes. My dilemma resided in the fact that I hate anything from San Francisco but am devoted to all thing Italianio. My vote Cioppino.

@GORE... Rainwater collected by hand? I still would not buy it, the trees were not groomed and massaged by little attractive 5'2" massage therapists.

Gore's is the best looking but the menu descriptions posted by both Gore and JiveTurkey (the name says it all) are so full of biosolids that I voted for bigabyte.

For some strange reason, Chris' picture has disappeared. Personally, I like this one better:



I would also like to air a few criticisms on another entry in this throwdown:

1. I believe only in California can pulled pork, sharp cheese and avocado taste good together;
2. Sandwiches are made with BREAD;
3. It's a nice idea to eat this without utensils, but the skin on an avocado is hardly bite-through;
4. While a good many people think a money tree is sound fiscal policy, similar schemes have shown otherwise;
5. I don't think unicorns really exist;
6. While Santa Claus does exist, I don't think he's going to be moving to Sacramento and I don't think California labor laws would allow him to work every day.

That being said, I really had to vote for Bigabyte for combining the elements of "California and BBQ" as I imagined them in this throwdown.

OK, let me try to explain this once again, since some of you apparently were not listening : pulled pork, avocado, and sharp cheddar cheese do NOT go well together, unless, perhaps, you are from California. "B" is not an option. Select "A" or "C," please.

Shamelessly posturing for votes again, eh? Well, two can play that game.

Wraps do not mix well with MOINK Balls. In fact, they are downright horrible. If you had any sense of taste at all, you would not vote for "A", but for "B" (which looks very yummy) or for "C" (also yummy).

How can it possibly be called a sandwich without bread? I think even in California, sandwiches have bread, in fact, I think there're about 17 laws requiring sandwiches to have bread. Definitely should've been DQ'ed. Incidentally, I'd be all over that wrap.

I would like to point out that the wrap, while labeled a "California Wrap", did not contain any sprouts of any kind. Any self-respecting person would disqualify that entry immediately, which (I fell) should call into question the integrity of the so called "Throwdown Moderator" this place has.

I think all from avocado-land would agree that a "double-down" version of a pulled-pork and cheese sandwich so oozes with California essence that it should have simply been declared the outright winner right away.

I tell ya, these things are RIGGED!
