A blog for eaters

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

Outstanding chimichanga smothered with a delicious ranchero sauce at Nuevo Girl in Ramona!

Ramona Cafe

Excellent Denver Omelette at Ramona Cafe!

Italian Cucina

Tasty Chicken Parmigiana at Barona Casino’s Italian Cucina! Unfortunately, their current ‘rona protocol has them covering the completed dishes in plastic wrap when it leaves the kitchen. The diner then has to literally unwrap it like a present at the table. Not a fan of that. A stainless steel dome would be far more elegant.

Pinto Thai

Outstanding to-go Pad Thai from Pinto Thai in Ramona! Asian food always makes the best takeout.

Casa de Pico

Visited July 12, 2020 – Excellent chimichanga at Casa de Pico in La Mesa!

The Par Lounge

Visited July 4, 2020 – There is a fantastic new (2 page) brunch menu at The Oaks Grille! I’ve tried several new things over the last few weeks and have enjoyed them all. Yesterday though was a standout with this “Chili Relleno Omelet”. Inside is Ortega chile, jack & cheddar cheese, then topped with a delicious, savory ranchero sauce, more cheese and crumbled queso fresco. Served with your choice of side plus toast, only $11. I was really impressed. This omelet was brilliantly constructed and cooked. I’m a fan of good chile rellenos and it really seemed like I was eating one with this omelet. Sadly, my beloved complimentary champagne is now history. $4 a glass now, or $15 for a bottle isn’t bad I suppose.

Olive Garden

Tasty “Five Cheese Ziti al Forno” with Italian sausage and meatball at OG in Santee, CA!

Tacos El Panson

Excellent taco catering from Tacos El Panson on El Cajon Blvd in San Diego. They had their mobile Cocina setup in my neighbors driveway for an event recently.

Ramona Cafe

Outstanding Tex-Mex Skillet at Ramona Cafe! Full of home fried taters, taco seasoned ground beef, etc.

Miguel’s Cocina

My new favorite dish at Miguel’s Cocina – “Miguel’s Trio Burritos”! Three mini burritos with Miguel’s signature sauces; carnitas with verde, carne asada with red enchilada, and shrimp with jalapeño cream. Simply excellent. Such a combustion of flavor.
