ISO Joe's Special - Pasadena
I suddenly have a craving for a good Joe's Special. Anyone know any place that features this old San Francisco treat - preferably around the Pasadena area?
Mel's Drive in in SF has a Joe's Special. There's a Mel's in Hollywood but I'm not sure if they make it there or not. I checked the menu on the website and it didn't list it. If you happen to be in Hollywood I would stop by and check it out anyway, they might make it for you or it may actually be on the menu at the restaurant.
Supposedly a dish invented by the proprietor of Original Joe's up in San Francisco.
Quote from linked article:
"The signature dish is Joe's Special, ground chuck, chopped spinach, three eggs, cheese, spices, cooked in olive oil in a skillet with the heat turned high.
A robust All-American Italian dish, 545 calories and 336 milligrams of cholesterol. Joe's Special, copied at many places, was invented at Original Joe's."
