Giant Lima Beans

Very true! and for the record I did not order 10 bags of RCs but I ordered some of our other favorites. These are Gucci beans indeed!

AND GF, vegan, free-range, dairy free, conflict free, shade grown…..
but I guess not paleo friendly. Whatever…they taste f'ing awesome and are a cheap meal.

Giant Lima Beans

Yes so I ordered 10 bags to justify the price difference with Seaside where they are $6.99 /lb:) but then I saved on gas too. This is my second big order from them and very happy. The beans are in the slow cooker today after an overnight soak. A $5.95 bag makes quite a substantial side dish or even a meal if you want to add other things to it. I love the Scarlet Runners and Ayocote Morados, they cook up big and meaty too.

I just got my shipment of Rancho Gordo Royal Coronas yesterday. They are HUGE even dry. They sometimes have them at Seaside market in Cardiff but 2 weeks ago they did not have them. If you love beans it is worth ordering a few varieties to try.

Week in Escondido/San Diego

Next time you are in town ( I have 2 kids) and take them everywhere : The Wooden Spoon, Bellows, Cucina del Charro, Roma Market, Northgate market or Vallarta (just a grocery store but great tacos inside), Ali Baba (Iraqi food), Vintana patio outside. We have great mexican food, HdV is good but we go there for setting. Stone Brew has become a giant PITA to go there with all the beer bus tours. There are some tiny tiny taco shops and mariscos places that I can suggest. Bull taco in Oceanside too

No kids then: Vintana inside, The Bellows and get extra cocktails, Bellamy's, Stone Brewery but make a reservation, Land and Water company in Carlsbad (HEAVENLY..amazing), Paon

Kid-friendly/oriented, but Chow-worthy

makes me so happy to see you mention Escogelato. It is our favorite place

Lunch in Carlsbad

Loved Paon and I really really really want to go to Land and Water. I actually really liked Green Dragon Tavern, great space inside and very good lobster roll.

The Wooden Spoon in Escondido

It is on East Valley right next to Wedekin's bakery and we sat outside. We got there at 5:30 but inside was full already, it is tiny. Think of a taqueria shop with an order counter and a handful of tables that got converted. The outside patio is nice. It is very relaxed.

The Wooden Spoon in Escondido

We (2 adults and 2 kids) went last Saturday to check it out and had a fantastic meal. I think the articles in UT and Eater have served as great advertising.
Started with cream of tomato soup, salt and vinegar pork rinds, pork belly toast with pesto and aoli. Entrees were the spoon burger, the lamb shepherds pie, the Japanese eggplant and the 4 cheese grilled cheese. Dessert consisted of chocolate chip cookies made to order with cold organic whole milk, butterscotch budino. Keeping the review simple because we want to go back. Nice and rustic outdoor seating with heaters, casual. It was busy!!!!!
Best of luck to the chef

ISO: your favorite croissant in San Diego

I love Darshan Bakery in Encinitas near the Self Realization Fellowship. Their croissants are excellent IMHO

Coming from LA for a few days...

In Little Italy: I would go to Bencotto/Juniper and Ivy/ Ironside Fish and Oyster
Point Loma: Point Loma Seafood because it is a fun area and you could go to the lighthouse after.
La Jolla: George's the top outdoor area for a spectacular view and good food
Tadokoro sushi or Sushi Ota for sushi..must eat uni, it is really good in SD
I think you would have fun at the Little Italy Farmer's market

Chow in Escondido?

Went once to El Tapatio and never went back. Too mediocre for the many choices in Escondido. I am personally a big fan of the food areas at Northgate market and Vallarta market.

The Bellow is wonderful and one of our favorite places. We are within stumbling distance and love having something so good so close.

They open tomorrow. "The Bellows" opened by the owner of Churchill's has been received very well by the community. Inland Tavern will be in a good location.

"Inland Tavern and Grill: (Formerly British Pub, Penny Lane) Chef Rob Conaway plans a menu that blends coastal California ingredients with international flavors in San Marcos"… hilarious, let us see what they come up with. It will be a major revamp and the sad Penny Lane def needed it.

You should stop on your way down at Chino Farms in Rancho Santa Fe..a Gucci veggie stand, cash only, very interesting produce. Chefs from local restaurant acquire vegetables from them and proudly state it on the menu.
