Archive for the month “February, 2022”

King’s Fish House

Excellent salmon cake at KFH in Mission Valley! I could have used fewer greens on top but it was pretty.

Villa Capri Trattoria & Wine Bar

Outstanding “Ravioli Villa Capri” and Italiana Salad at Villa Capri in Poway!

Cheesecake Factory

I’ve been really impressed lately by the composed pasta dishes at The Cheesecake Factory! I’ve recently had Chicken Bellagio and this Chicken Piccata pictured here. Both exceeded my culinary expectations! I also highly recommend the Cheeseburger Springrolls appetizer. Such a creative and delicious snack that I could order every visit. Service here is really nice too, especially at the bar.

Pinto Thai

Excellent Thai Fried Rice at Pinto Thai in Ramona!


Rubio’s calls this a “Classic Grilled Shrimp Burrito”. I call it a “Rice” burrito with a little bit of shrimp! Despite the disappointing proportions, it was still tasty.

Brigantine Seafood

Outstanding Cioppino at the Brig in Poway! This hearty, flavorful seafood medley is my favorite thing to order there. Highly recommended.

La Palapa Mexican Restaurant & Cocktails

Excellent beef enchilada and chile relleno combination plate at La Palapa in Lakeside!

The Cork and Craft

Tasty “Loaded Mac & Cheese” at Cork & Craft! Not the best composition of mac I’ve had, but it was decent nonetheless. The Saison was exquisite.

Victor’s Kafe

Outstanding Gyros Salad at VK in Rancho Bernardo! Hearty portion, great taste and no heavy pita.

Grub Burger Bar

Excellent “You’re My Boy Blue” burger at Grub Burger Bar in Carmel Mountain Ranch!
