Happy Summer days, everyone! If you find yourself cruising along the backbone of California’s high sierra, the “Whoa Nelli Deli” in Lee Vining is aVERY worthy spot! Located inside the Mobil station, the WND offers gourmet dishes such as seared ahi salads, incredible half-pound hamburgers, and delectable mango-garnished fish tacos.
W ho would expect find to find juicy steaks, fish tacos to die for, and a great glass of wine in a gas station?? Certainly not me!
The food is awesome, and so is the view. It’s great to find a picnic table outside the Deli and gaze out over Mono Lake and the great Eastern Sierra. We sat and drank a creme root beer while the storm clouds crested the summit and blew over the lake. Very nice!
WND is easy to find….go to the intersection of US 395 and CA 120 (Tioga Pass), go west(towards Yosemite) about 4oo hundred yards and you’ll see it!
