Filippi’s Pizza Grotto

An Italian institution in San Diego. Some of the best pizza in town.


Homemade Eggs Benedict

My wife has been inspired recently to make one of our favorite indulgence breakfasts from scratch. I was merely there for extra hands when needed. Also included scratch hashbrowns from freshly grated potatos. The Benedicts started with a base of English muffin halves toasted in the skillet, topped with quickly sauteed Canadian bacon slices, poached eggs, and finally crowned with our homamade hollandaise. All turned out excellent and we’ll definitely be doing this again!


Pei Wei Asian Diner

Again I got the Pad Thai. It’s really good, but about half way through, the intense flavors become a bit tiring. I think next time I’ll go back to my usual fried rice bowl.


Par Lounge BBQ weekend

The kitchen at the Oakes Grill (country club down the street) is being made over with some new gear and whatnot. While the kitchen is out of commission they had a cook out type menu this weekend. Here is my bratwurst with kraut and chips. My wife had a steak sandwich which was really tasty. Everything was served with a side of baked beans, but beans do not touch these lips so I made do with the chips.


Dudley’s Bakery

This is in Santa Ysabel, a sleepy little hamlet on the way to Julian. Julian is a sleepy hamlet, but a bit bigger and more well known in SoCal. Dudley’s is a famous bakery in the region and they have a small deli with made to order sandwiches. Here is a roast beef & provolone on country white, grilled panini style.



Quick artisan breakfast sandwich this morning. Bacon, egg and Gouda.
