One of my favorite home cooked meals is my outstanding spaghetti and meat sauce. So simple, yet often far better than I can get in any restaurant. One of the reasons is perfectly cooked pasta. Always al dente at home when I make it. Eating out, pasta can be a gamble.

Starbucks “Evenings” has finally come to Ramona! Recently they had their inaugural evening that features a thoughtful selection of wine and craft beer alongside a menu of “small plate” specialties. Starbucks has been slowly rolling out this concept over the last 5 years at select stores. Come in after 4pm for beer & wine so you can go completely full circle with your stimulants/depressants at the same place.
I tried the Truffle Mac & Cheese for $5.95. Macaroni pasta in a creamy truffle fondue with herbed parmesan breadcrumbs. Came out better than expected. I would definitely get this again. Portion was just right if you happened to have had a big, late lunch.
Also tried the Chicken Skewers for $4.95. Marinated chicken breast coated with parmesan and panko breadcrumbs, served with a mustard dipping sauce. Fairly tasty but quite a bit more institutional tasting than the mac.
It was kind of a trip walking into Starbucks tonight and being offered a wine tasting.
Outstanding two item combination plates at Panda! This place has some of the best orange chicken in Chinese fast food. Also had the Beijing beef which was excellent. My favorite at Panda Express is always their amazing chow mein. Perfect noodle size, not all thick and gummy.
Outstanding lunch specials at a San Diego sports bar institution! Individual pizza with a cold, fresh, crisp salad is an amazing combination. Here at Oggi’s you have an impressive array of creative pizzas to choose from. I chose what they call “The Heavyweight”. Made with Canadian bacon, ground beef, Italian sausage, pepperoni, salami and all natural ham. Looked and tasted excellent! Caesar salad accompaniment was equally tasty.
