San Diego - Yakyudori to open Ramen Shop in Convoy!

went last night after coming home from snowboarding and what a perfect way to end a great weekend. Highly recommend you go check it out. We tried 4 different ramens and the gyoza. I recommend the Shoyu, Nagoya, Shio and Miso in that order. If you have soup left, they serve extra noodles (kae-dama) for $1.50.

Personally I feel that they serve the best shouyu ramen in town. Shio ramen broth is ridiculously clear. Both have very clean flavor.

SD/North County: all you can eat sushi

I havn't been there in years but just remembered there is Mr. Sushi next to Trader Joe's in Encinitas. It's NC and it is certainly all-you-can-eat. Used to go there when quantity matters more than quality.

Kaito Sushi -- cooked options for the non-sushi fan?

We almost always get a plate of gyutan (beef tongue) when we have non-sushi friends with us at Kaito.

Dining on a budget in Tokyo and Kyoto

My father lives in Kyoto, its beautiful place. I recommend having tofu, it is good all over Japan, but especially so in Kyoto. You should be able to find a full course menu of just all soy products including variety of tofu, yuba, nama-fu, etc.

While you are in Tokyo, if you get a chance, check out one of the Shunju restaurants. They are one of the leaders in modern Japanese cuisine movements. A place where tradition meets modern, elegant simplicity and exquisite purity of taste, method, and appearance.

Conveyer belt sushi is good for the novelty of the conveyer belt. You have to do it just for that reason. As for the quality, there are quality conveyer belt sushi joints and others, not so much. You get what you pay for at the end.

I just ran in to this Kyoto food blog couple weeks ago, and I like it: http://www.kyotofoodie.com/

Clover Coffee Brewer (San Diego Area)

This maybe old news to some of you but I read an article about the $11,000 Clover Coffee machine on Wired this morning ( http://www.wired.com/gadgets/miscella... ).

Wondering if there is any where in the greater San Diego area that serves coffee brewed by this machine? Perhaps I need to travel to OC? I figured that there are plenty of coffee lovers on Chow that one of you guys can guide me. I did a quick search on the previous thread but did not find any. CGfan?

San Diego Rec Needed

I recently went to Anthology, a jazz bar in down town San Diego. I feel like I been missing out as the night seemed almost too good to be true. Killer atmosphere, tasty specialty cocktails, excellent food, great music, and on point service (by all) to boot.

We sat in the very front booth by the stage but I was thinking that it would be nice to go back and sit at the bar for a nice meal and listen to some tunes.

Carlsbad Query

Bumping the thread to see if we can resurrect this thread active. Moved from Encinitas to Carlsbad a year ago. Still haven't conquered all the eateries so I am interested to hear from all of you.

Really have not had good Chinese in a while and would like your input especially on that.

Really have not found good taqueria so I head down to Leucadia and Encinitas. Who makes a decent bean and cheese burrito in Carlsbad? Good carnitas?

Big fan of Pelly's Fish Market, Tip-Top for meat, and the little market next door for fresh veggies. Sunday Champaign brunch @ Bellefleur has been great way to entertain us. Not a big buffet fan but Bellefleur seems to do a great job and you can’t beat 20 bucks for a Champaign brunch.

Kaito in Encinitas

We finally had the chance to stop by the new location last night. We were entertained for 3 hours with other guests and fans of Kaito. And it was worth the long wait! No more sushiya ronin for us. We have found a new home away from home.

The new location is much more cozy and makes all the sense!
