Mi Guadalajara

Outstanding lunch combination plate with enchilada and tamale at Mi Guad in Esco!

Mariscos Mar de Cortez

I always enjoy ordering the “Supreme Burrito” at Mariscos Mar de Cortez in Ramona! I requested beef as usual, but unfortunately it was made with chicken this time. Still tasty, but not what I wanted. It also wasn’t really hot enough. The dish quickly assumed room temperature throughout after being served.

The Slice & Pint

El Segundo Brewing Company’s “The Slice & Pint” is a fantastic new eatery in old downtown El Segundo! As the name implies, they simply specialize in serving some great pizza, etc., along with their fine selection of local craft beers. Highly recommended!

San Sai Japanese Grill

I went out on a limb and tried this hole in the wall lunch spot on Sepulveda in El Segundo. Spicy Chicken Bowl was surprisingly tasty at San Sai Japanese Girl. Easy to eat in the car.

Richmond Bar & Grill

Outstanding pastrami burger at Richmond Bar & Grill in El Segundo, CA!

Jetta Thai

Excellent Pad Thai Noodle at Jetta Thai in quirky downtown El Segundo!

Ramona Cafe

Outstanding Chorizo Scramble with beautifully toasted English muffin at Ramona Cafe!

Miguel’s Cocina

Excellent Flautas de Carnitas y Queso at Miguel’s in 4S Ranch!

Mariscos Mar de Cortez

Outstanding shrimp enchiladas at Mariscos Mar de Cortez in Ramona, CA!

Italian Cucina

Barona Casino’s Italian Cucina continues its downward spiral in food quality. The chicken parmigiana seems more institutional now, and the pasta even more overcooked. Not what it used to be. The food coming out sealed in plastic wrap only adds to my dismay. For some reason they ask if you’re “celebrating a special occasion” when making a reservation. I’m like, no, just hungry.
