between Sacto & Nevada City: seeking hound-worthy destinations

escargot3 Mar 21, 2012 11:05 AM

I am going up to Nevada City for a few days of r&r and am curious to learn about any places to explore. I'm equally delighted with a hole-in-the-wall taco place or a spot that will cause a deeper dent in the wallet.

I'm thinking that it would be fun to have lunch and a good espresso in Sacramento. Especially if it's not much more than a few miles from the highway. But I will definitely travel further for a great food experience. Especially eager for: great tacos, Vietnamese rice plate (and yummy VN iced coffee), and other diversions from burgers.

I've heard there's a Punjabi community in the foothills. Are there any eateries to recommend?

Thanks.
