Food Observations

A blog for eaters

Flippin’ Pizza

Excellent two slice and soft drink lunch special at Flippin’ Pizza in 4S Ranch!

Junction 52 Bar & Grill

Outstanding Diablo Burger at Junction 52 in Santee!

Casa de Pico

Underwhelming chile relleno and excellent beef enchilada at Casa de Pico in La Mesa!

Dumpling Inn

Back in SoCal after that quick trip to Florida! On my way home from the airport I always like to stop by Dumpling Inn & Shanghai Saloon on Convoy Street. Enjoyed an excellent wonton soup and tasty order of beef curry dumplings.

Harry’s Seafood

Outstanding Blackened Redfish at Harry’s Seafood in St. Augustine, FL! For only $3.99 more you can get it blue crab crusted. This made it “Blue Crab Crusted Blackened Redfish”. That’s three colors in one dish! Such a marvel, perfectly cooked and incredibly delicious. Also enjoyed an order of excellent Fried Green Tomatoes. Harry’s is located in a beautiful and historic 3-story building right on the Matanzas River. Established in 1987, Harry’s serves the best of southern, cajun and creole flavors in classic and modern dishes. If you ever visit Florida, I highly recommend you find the nearest one. There are five locations throughout the state.

Dixie Crossroads

Outstanding fried catfish and rock shrimp platter at Dixie Crossroads in Titusville, FL! Their crab cake though was surprisingly good. Rivaling the best I’ve had in Maryland over the years. I was impressed.

Embassy Suites

Such richly browned omelettes at Embassy Suites in Downtown Orlando! Seriously though, I eat at many Embassy Suites hotels around the country and I sincerely appreciate their cooked to order breakfast. This one in Orlando though had consistently overcooked omelettes. At least they looked like an omelette, unlike LAX South which looks more like a thin, folded crepe.

Harp & Celt Irish Pub

In central Florida for a couple days! Had a very tasty order of fish & chips and Guinness draft at Harp & Celt Irish Pub in Downtown Orlando.

The Godfather

Outstanding spaghetti carbonara at The Godfather! One of San Diego’s finest Italian restaurants.

Mamma Ramona’s

A fairly institutional chicken parmigiana at Mamma Ramona’s. Not among the best parm I’ve had but it was decent nonetheless. I think I’ll stick with their outstanding cannelloni.
