Sunvalley Shopping Center in Concord has a Serious Rodent Problem

Sunvalley Shopping Center, Concord

Last month, for the second time since spring, the Sunvalley shopping center in Concord had a serious rodent infestation at numerous restaurants according to this NBC Bay Area news article. You know things are bad when  “there were mouse traps (with) a dead mouse in it at the time we inspected” and “roaches, live coach roaches.” WTF?!

When I finished playing video games at Round 1 with my son over the weekend he sat down near the food court and asked what’s for lunch. I gently suggested we go elsewhere and happily drove to nearby Veranda mall where we ate great burgers at Super Duper.

College Square, Pleasant Hill

While we wait for Roll House to open in downtown Walnut Creek it turns out that Roll House 2 already opened at College Square near Diablo Valley College (DVC) on Golf Club Pleasant Hill. They offer both sushi and poke bowls. I found out about this new restaurant from the foodhoe Instagram page here which has some really great photos of food dishes from mostly around the Bay Area.
