What's your *favorite* restaurant in San Diego?

'I often workout at a local park "boot camp".. Not sure I'd want to work out next to you after you ate Tantan Noodles.

BTW - Didn't think they had boot camp for seniors.

If you read my post carefully I only mention an ingredient, not a restaurant.

To support your rebuttal of Rh's previous posts on Baja influence, so if I squeeze some lime on my seafood does that indicate such influence.

HH, I don't understand why you attempt to rationalize with this guy. Do you honestly believe this crap.

Then I suggest you earn your keep. LOL! Come to SD, read the SD CH threads, make an offer to buy FN's Crystal Ball and begin your chow adventure.

Orfila Winery, in Escondido,has a nice picnic area underneath the vines with a good view. They do offer mini tours and have the typical tastings menus.

Agree with Dr Chow, get to the Marisco's Pescador Truck for some great Baja Style fish tacos.

For some slow cooked lamb barbacoa try Aqui es Texcoco and across the street is Pho Cali, recently opened, very good Pho.

Also, Super Cocina for great Mex soups and braised food.

Very harsh FC, all they want is for you to do their homework for them, just imagine that. Then again, the search feature is quite tedious!

Best Taco Shop/Mexican food in Escondido

I don't recall seeing black angus. I like their tacos, very good marinade.

I've been for many happy hours over the years, the place is lively and the food is very acceptable. Not sure what you mean about the food quality, they use fresh seafood and other ingredients. Pretty serious accusation HH.

Went to Rakiraki, a while ago, for some ramen and tried a curry. I like the flavor that the nori gives to the broth, but the noodles were somewhat forgettable. Dr. Chow would not like the curry, nowhere near spicy. I was OK for me but, it can't compare to JT Thai's curries. Now, if only that parking lot could cars more than the width of a skate board. Lot's of great options in this strip mall. Been to O'Brien's Pub for a good lunch burger, next Red Moon.

The 'Boss Man' Hodad's - RIP

Need to give some love on CH. Mike was a very generous supporter of his folks at the restaurant and OB. His legacy and the restaurant will continue. A great local loss.

Still a deal considering that beef costs are through the roof. Also, entrees come with potato and veg.

Non-Mexican good for 17-person group in Escondido / San Marcos?

Might want to consider Orfila Winery. They have awesome grounds with picnic tables and also a covered tent. They have a catering side of the winery and can easily accommodate your group. Give them a call.

Don't forget the car exhaust smell of the Convoy traffic and all that background white noise. Lovely, adds to the wonderful rich and unique ambiance!

So maybe in contrast, LJ should not have Porkyland, Su Casa or The Shack. I mean it's not the LJ vibe, right!

I don't understand the 'Del Mar vibe'. Is CSS not good enough to be located in Del Mar. Sounds a bit snobby and uppity.

Nice rendition FN. I was thinking of me as a kid, infatuated, with by Kodak Brownie camera that I got from a savings bank when I opened my very first savings account.

Also, agree that DrC has a gut of steel! Totally flame proof.

"Live" Dungeness crabs--can you taste the difference?

Those dungies are swimming in salt water. I always will choose live over precooked and/or frozen. Get the big ones.
