Eureka! Tasting Kitchen is a hidden gem — it's snuggly tucked between a relief airport and SpaceX, two places you normally wouldn't find yourself unless you were interested in flying to Vegas or planet Mars. Recommended by Charlie, a good friend of mine who works at SpaceX, Eureka's offers elevated comfort foods using locally sourced ingredients.
The restaurant ambiance is chill but the focus on food is refined without being frou frou (yeah, I like that). I had the Bone Marrow Burger which looked to be the burger to get; the bone marrow porcini butter was subtle but worthwhile. Stacy had the Original Eureka! Burger and Charlie spiced things up with the Jalapeño Egg Burger with a tortilla casing instead of a bun (now that's advanced thinking!). We also started off with Lollipop Corn Dogs which tasted like a kids item but was still fun to try.
Fast and friendly service, delicious drinks and food — it's no wonder many workers nearby frequent this joint for their social meetings. Will come here again, thanks Charlie!
