Big, beautiful plate of carne asada chips at Yesenia’s in Carmel Mountain Ranch! Unfortunately the carne was just meh. Tasted like it was cooked the day before.
Outstanding lasagna at Marechiaro’s on Olde Highway 80! Layers of fresh, homemade pasta sheets enveloping Italian sausage, beef, ricotta, mozzarella and Romano cheeses, then baked to perfection.
Outstanding tater skins and tasty steak bites at D’Carlos in Ramona, CA! We’re really enjoying trying new things on their thoughtful appetizer menu. Live music on their spacious and comfortable patio is the best! We enjoyed seeing Michael Jay Dwyer perform when we were there.
I’m not sure if this was a geometric anomaly or they slipped in two slices from a bigger pizza. I’m pretty sure it was just unfortunate slippage. At any rate, another outstanding pizza from Ramona Lisa! That calamari though seems to be masquerading as onion rings. 😂
Excellent “Doppio” pizza and dinner salad at The Par Lounge in Ramona, CA! One of my favorite things to order there. Always delicious and affordable. Still loving their new pizza oven, that’s for sure!
In El Segundo recently I stumbled upon this great new burger joint called Hopdoddy Burger Bar. It was fantastic, that I can tell you! They have a distinctly creative menu of original and delicious burger creations. I ordered the “Llano Poblano”. Angus beef patty with applewood smoked bacon, Tillamook Pepper Jack, seared poblano chiles, Chipotle aioli, etc. Everything was excellent. Hopdoddy is my new favorite purveyor of fine burgers. I need to take Lady Food Obs here next time!
