What's Your Favorite Happy Hour in San Diego County?

Thanks for the El Agave tip. Usually we avoid the Del Mar Plaza like the plague.

For Del Mar/Solana Beach our Happy Hour rotation includes: Jake's, the Brig, Red Tracton's (no view, but world class people watching), The Pony Room and The Craftsman.

Costco wine selection?

Wine selection does vary by location. Carlsbad and the Morena location have good selections. In fact, the Carlsbad Costco is one of the top 10 Costo's for wine sales.

Good article about the fraudulent use of Farm-To-Table in San Diego

"Locally sourced," "farm-to-table," "non-GMO" is the equivalent of claiming that you have "the coldest beer in town."

Galaxy Taco

If you're in the mood for hipster tacos, I highly recommend Salud! in the Barrio.

BBQ in San Diego? Or a good family friendly restaurant?

Casa de Guadalajara in Old Town; Phil's BBQ in Point Loma; the C Level Patio (part of Island Prime) on Harbor Island; and the Bali Hai Restaurant on Shelter Island/Point Loma are all good for families.

4 reasons SD's food scene is on fire right now

The only aspect of the San Diego food scene that is "on fire" is The Fish Market. Too soon?

indian mangoes?

Zion Market was running a crazy deal on mangos. $2.99 per case of either Tommy Atkins or Alphonso. Not sure if it's still going.

salting tri-tip several days in advance?

I believe per the experts (Cook's Illustrated etc.), 48 hours achieved the best result when they dry rubbed a turkey.

Have the recent rains helped the drought?

The CA rain was nice for local farmers but there is zero snow pack in the Sierras, hence the long term drought issues.

Where in San Diego can I find good Balsamic Vinegar (Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale)?

Both Sur La Table and Williams Sonoma carry the good stuff. I suspect that Assenti's Pasta and Mona Lisa do as well.

Flour in SD

Von's and Albertson's both carry these flours; however, they are typically displayed in the hippy-dippy organic section of the store -- usually by the Bob's Red Mill products. Also Trader Joe's should carry what you're looking for.

How can a roast pig be tasteless?

Probably under seasoned. You have to very liberal with the salt when BBQing pork.

Las Cuatro Milpas hot sauce?

You're spot on. It's essentially lard, chilies and salt. It may also have a bit of garlic.

I was unaware of the beef broth. I'll have to taste it a bit more carefully next time.

Robert Parker: High wine prices creating ‘caste system’

I like Robert Parker, but he misapplied the use of the term "caste system."

Also the high end wine that Robert Parker was referring to is luxury item, as is high end fashion such D&B. We're not talking basic necessities. Regardless, the laws of economics still apply to both. Producers will charge what the market will bare.
