Getting ready for another school year, Executive C is prepared and awaiting the first day of school at the Faculty Club on the campus of University of California Santa Barbara. Although busy throughout the year, Chef Studds still finds down time with a less stressful schedule than most executive chefs have. Whipping up delicious and fresh soups, salads, risotto, and seafood everyday, these students and faculty are experiencing five star lunches, that are so affordable!
It was a classic case of June gloom today as my fiancé and I headed up the coast, on the 101 freeway, to La Super Rica in Santa Barbara. Despite the gloomy weather, there was nothing but smiles and excitement from not only us, but the other customers in anticipation of the delicious Mexican food. Only a 45 minute drive from our starting point of Newbury Park/Thousand Oaks, we arrived at 10:45 am, 15 minutes before La Super Rica opened. We snagged a parking spot right in front and got in line because one was already forming! We were soon followed in line by two more parties and 15 minutes after La Super Rica had opened, there was a mix of 15 people, from families to local workers on their lunch break, chowing down while a line continued out the door.
