Pizzeria Mozza--Underwhelmed

DrC, you are trying your best to be graceful but, it sounds like the pizza just wasn't good. I can't stand a soggy dough, it just takes away from the whole taste/texture thing. I try to limit the toppings especially where they may add moisture to the top of the pizza. IMO, the dough has to be crisp on the edges and, most important, the bottom.

List some of your fave lunch spots. .

Had the crispy fish and Pho with brisket and rare thin beef slices. The fish was succulent with a nice hit of crisp ginger and scallions. The place was jamming!

' I've been trying to shed a few extra lb's'. None of the places you listed will help with your endeavor. You may need to head out to East County in order to fast.

I'm off to OB Noodle House to get a fix on my craving for today.

Don't spoil a good thing, maybe a re-name to AsianTown.

How about some great seafood shacks, run by families that care, that serve up fresh stuff. Don't need any pinky finger in the air crap.

Some great Italian would be a nice surprise.

Catering idea for approx 30 on a budget

Picking on DD's post, Costco has some excellent hummus, stuffed grape leaves, olives, fresh bread rolls, imported cold cuts, marinated veggies, cheeses etc, can be well within your budget.

Salt-free Potato Chips -- No Canola & No Cottonseed Oil

I'd look for another treat to eat, why bother with salt free potato chips in a frying oil that brings nothing to the palate, they won't make you happy. You'll be better off with plain rice cakes.

San Diego breweries among best in the world....

Most start up crafts are located where rent is cheap, far from urban areas. When they become viable, like Stone, they locate satellite stores in highly populated urban areas. As for comparing Oakland to SD, please spare me.

5lb Beef for Stew - in deep freeze - for almost 5 years! YIKES!

If the meat has a good color after thawing, cut a thin slice off, do a quick fry using s&p and give it a taste.

I agree that SD has some fine breweries but, if you think how many local craft beers are being produced in the US. it's probably impossible for anyone to actually have experienced enough to make such a statement. So, your statement that SD 'might' is a fair opinion.

Don't knock BC's immediate hunger cravings, her palate is quite interesting, along with ipse's. Her thread is about the only thing keeping this SD board alive!

Not too sure about Tobey's but, the razor clams sound mighty tempting right about now. BTW - thanks for waking up this dismal CH board.

Pizzeria Mozza--Underwhelmed

Oh I don't know, in the case of KC BBQ the only thing that kept them going so long was the link to Top Gun. If not for that, they would have been toast long before the fire, not pun intended. As for Mozza, the corp will not tolerate a meh place for long.

Four days in San Diego

Hit up a Marisco's Fish Taco Truck. The truck off the 5 South, where the Toys R Us Store is located, will probably be the easiest to find on Industrial Ave.
