BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — This week features droolworthy photos of meals eaten by anchor Maddie Janssen at Luigi’s and El Charro, and a slice of German chocolate cake purchased from Sequoia Sandwich Company by reporter Nicole Gitzke big enough it could be used as ballast.

Janssen went carb-free with this meal featuring an ample portion of chicken on a bed of arugula and shaved fennel with avocado and pepitas. Not every meal at Luigi’s has to involve mountains of pasta to satisfy diners.

Huevos rancheros at El Charro

Janssen said she’s been eating at El Charro since she was a kid. She recommends the huevos rancheros, which are “so delicious.”

 The downtown Sequoia is located a short walk from the 17 News studio. Staffers eat there often. Gitze has tried a variety of items from the shop, but she never leaves without a slice of German chocolate cake.

“I cannot go to Sequoia without a piece of it,” she said.
