Patsy Tucker is a senior police administrative clerk at the Lodi Police Department.

Q: What is your favorite place to eat?

A: Taste of Thai at 116 W. Turner Road. Besides the personal service of owner Linda and staff, the food is great (even though I tend to stick to my favorite ... pepper garlic pork!). Their sweet potato fries are wonderful dipped in their peanut sauce. It’s nice to go into a local business and they know your name and remember your favorite dish!

Q: What’s one thing not to miss on a tour of Lodi?

A: Lodi Lake and the nature trails. You cannot truly experience it, though, unless you get out of your car and walk around the lake, the trails, etc. It is beautiful. And go at different times of the day and year to get the full experience.

Q: Favorite outing in or around Lodi?

A: Paddling the Mokelumne ... when you are on the river you see so much more than if you were in a speed-boat. Plus you can explore all the little nooks and crannies of the waterway and it is so relaxing. It only gets better when you paddle with a group of friends and enjoy it together.

Q: What is one secret most outsiders don’t know about Lodi?

A: A lot of people visiting Lodi do not realize we have a lake or access to the Mokelumne River. (I sense a pattern here.) The hidden gems of our area!

Q: Favorite place to browse or shop?

A: I enjoy walking the Downtown area and seeing what is new in the shops while on my lunch break. Or after work meeting friends for dinner or libations at one of the Downtown restaurants. We have a wonderful Downtown that only keeps getting better.

Q: What is the best meal you have ever had in Lodi?

A: One of the best meals I have ever had was at Haru Sushi Bar at 550 S. Cherokee Lane. They have wonderful rolls; two of my favorites are the JD Roll and the Love Roll. Great flavor. Along with their rolls I had the beef teriyaki bento box with tempura and gyoza.
