Miguel’s Cocina

Excellent Mexican-style shrimp cocktail at Miguel’s in Coronado!

Junction 52 Bar & Grill

Outstanding Calamari at Junction 52 in Santee! This place has a fantastic selection of delicious appetizers and cold draft beers.

Italian Cucina

Decent order of lasagna at Barona Casino’s Italian Cucina. Not quite as good as it was before here.

Marinade on Main

The best chicken wings in Ramona, at Marinade on Main!

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

Outstanding chimichanga smothered with a delicious ranchero sauce at Nuevo Girl in Ramona!

Ramona Cafe

Excellent Denver Omelette at Ramona Cafe!

Italian Cucina

Tasty Chicken Parmigiana at Barona Casino’s Italian Cucina! Unfortunately, their current ‘rona protocol has them covering the completed dishes in plastic wrap when it leaves the kitchen. The diner then has to literally unwrap it like a present at the table. Not a fan of that. A stainless steel dome would be far more elegant.

Pinto Thai

Outstanding to-go Pad Thai from Pinto Thai in Ramona! Asian food always makes the best takeout.

Casa de Pico

Visited July 12, 2020 – Excellent chimichanga at Casa de Pico in La Mesa!

The Par Lounge

Visited July 4, 2020 – There is a fantastic new (2 page) brunch menu at The Oaks Grille! I’ve tried several new things over the last few weeks and have enjoyed them all. Yesterday though was a standout with this “Chili Relleno Omelet”. Inside is Ortega chile, jack & cheddar cheese, then topped with a delicious, savory ranchero sauce, more cheese and crumbled queso fresco. Served with your choice of side plus toast, only $11. I was really impressed. This omelet was brilliantly constructed and cooked. I’m a fan of good chile rellenos and it really seemed like I was eating one with this omelet. Sadly, my beloved complimentary champagne is now history. $4 a glass now, or $15 for a bottle isn’t bad I suppose.
