Songkran (4/13-4/15) Thai New Year (2550) ... What's it all about?

i lived in thailand for 18 years and i celebrated sonkran every year. it was so much fun!! i just walked around the streets drinking beer, eating sticky rice and chicken, and throwing water on people!
id say the main foods for sonkran is mostly northern thai stuff like:

cow neaw gai yang (sticky rice and chicken)
kaow soy (thick yellow noodle in a curry sauce)
prik noom (a green hot sauce served with nothern thai food)
prik ong (another type of sauce)
cat moo (pork grinds)
moo yang (grilled pork)
som tham (papaya salad with fish sauce, tomatoes, green beans, shrimp and crab) i like it without the crab

usually all that food is served at the table and eaten all together
damn i miss those times!!!!

What to get at Vietnamese Restaurants....

i like Banh Canh cua. its a thicker, rounder noodle in a very flavorful broth. it has shrimp and crab meat in it and when you add all the condiments and herbs it turns out to be a hell of a dish. it makes for something good when your feeling like a little something different.

JV taco shop in San Diego. SO BOMB

theres this little taco shop in san diego called JV taco shop located on moreno Dr. (where the 163 and the 8 freeways meet). it had the most authentic mexican food i have ever had on this side of the border!
the spicy jack chiken quesadilla was so good. the chicken is nice and tender and they grill the outside of the quesadilla in the spicy jack sauce so the tortilla is crispy and spicy with tons of flavor

the surf and turf burrito is by far the best but its a little expencive (7 bucks). but its huge! i measured it from my elbow to my wrist. they double wrap it and it has carne asada, rice, sour creme, guacamole, salsa and hell of a lot of shrimp. i got mine without rice though so they put extra carne asada in it. they have lime and hot sauce on the side. i couldnt finish it in one sitting but i took it home and it still made good leftovers. if you live in san diego or anywhere near USD its definately somewhere you want to try.

oh ya, i must warn you that everytime ive been there, ive seen cops eating there so make sure your not riding dirty when you show up!!
