Philadelphia Hounds coming to San Diego for a week in October

If you will have a car, get on the 5 south you'll find an exit where the Toys R Us is located on Industrial Ave. The Marisco's el Pescador fish taco truck will be located in the parking lot. Excellent Baja style fish tacos, seafood tostada's and other styles of seafood tacos. If you're in the mood for lamb barbacoa, Aqui es Texcoco in Chula Vista, just google the name to find it. Great Pho in a fun atmosphere at OB Noodle House in Ocean Beach.

I'm craving...

Porchetta sandwich on a crusty chiabatta bread roll. Is there any place close by that makes a great porchetta with crispy potato chip like skin.

Well, I think this article's mention of SD's specialty in the CA ranking, got it correct.

WSJ Gives SD Some Props

Great article El C. WSJ got it right on the craft beer point, then generalized on some of the chef cuisine movement to Pacific Coast and not specifically SD. Then graduated to mention some SD places like CU and Chipotle Mexican Grill really Chipotle, and the Kensington and OB areas that are moving towards better cuisine. Not a lot of places for the 8th largest city in the US, so is the surf up or are we still experiencing ankle slappers . There is hope!

If I had Magical Restaurant Powers, I'd :

Move Katz's deli to just north of the 52 so I wouldn't have to share it with FN. Love that 8 mile sphere of comfort!

ISO of the Best Burrito

More wasted space on our precious and overly active SD board. Oh, the best by Nate, I'm really impressed, like most voted best lists, total BS! We may now continue living our daily lives.

The Lack of Craft; A Reason Why San Diego is Ignored by Foodies?

I'll stick to Fakey's logic, that being the 'best of something' et al is ones personal taste and quite subjective. The same goes for price, it's quite subjective whether one feels that a restaurant in a certain area of the country offers more value than another. I am a mere mortal and offer advise with no professional culinary background.

Actually, if you think about it, in the beginning man & women were vegetarians as they only used meat for a sacrifice.
