Caviar for New Year's Eve

Costco has three one ounce assorted caviar jars for $129.99. They also had a 2 ounce Osetra for $69.99. Worth looking into.

San Diego Swordfish (and other fish)- Are there tumors, and how do San Diego's fishmongers deal with them?

As an example of a trusted local, I'll take bluefin2na's word as to what he's seen over that past 20-30 years. That's good for me. BTW - I rarely eat swordfish, their size has deminished and they have been way over fished.

Donut Time...Again

A donut mentioned in the same breath as calories. Why bother, just indulge!

'opening jitters'. Gee, I just opened up a donut shop and I can't make a donut that anyone likes. Really!!

Way to soft DD. There are many good mom & pop donut shops in SD that serve just what you enjoy for a buck, not $4.00.

'Big, light, pillowy, plushy, non-greasy raised donut. Not too sweet - the icing or glaze will take care of that - that is soft and billowy when I bite into it...and the glaze or icing doesn't fall off. Flavors that are focused and play well together, that don't compete for top billing.'

Barleyandfigs?

I drive by a lot but, have never seen anyone in there. I guess I'll have to stop in and report back.

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

Marisco's Pescador Fish Taco Truck in the Toys R Us parking lot. Love the ambiance that surrounds me.

'If you remove the part with the worm, there's nothing wrong with the rest of the apple.' A worm hole is much different than a cancer in the body. I wouldn't feed a cat a fish in that condition and would hope the fish monger would toss the whole thing. Bluefin2na, your opinion lease!

I respect your opinion but, 3 years of an issue that appears to not be increasing is a good barometer. Show me a government study that supports your barometer of instability.

I'd like to see a government study, not an opinionated news paper.

Yah, like China and Japan, tell them to jump on the band wagon. While you do, have Japan stop harvesting whales.

So, if the last 20-30 years have been say, stable, then maybe we ARE doing a better job at protecting our oceans. Josh take note, the sky is not falling!

I think it's no different when a super market buys a truck load of say, lettuce. As part going through the pallets of produce, there will always be waste. Same with a seafood house, that's life.

Panforte!

Panforte!

I bring it back often from Italy. Haven't found anything in the area, if anyone maybe call Mona Lisa. Rulli looks good albeit a bit pricey, get some torrone if they have it as well.

Will depend on the time of year you go, I'm confident that you're a great negotiator. Ever been to that part of the country?

Campbell's, that's all we had or knew before electricity. Like 5 cents a can, loved that soup. Most kids in school got it for lunch and ended up throwing it away. As you would say, dumb asses!

Prime Rib in San Diego

8 oz prime rib...that's like a burger, way too small. When I order a prime rib it has to be dead center cut rare and thick.

Nice list BC, the new El Pecscador is nice inside, plenty of room. Also, not in LJ but, Carnitas Snack Shack, in Clairemont, is good. Do a search.

Enjoy your stay.
