Tasty Shrimp & Lobster Roll at The Cork and Craft in Rancho Bernardo!
Outstanding “Baked Rigatoni” at CKF in Esco! I’ve been wanting to try this dish for some time, but it’s always been unavailable until this visit. Made with ground chicken instead of beef or sausage (you couldn’t tell). Such a creamy, cheesy, saucy, meaty, heavy dish. So good, but not something you want to eat everyday.
Hailed as “Poway’s best taco bar”, Taco Taco does not disappoint! Tucked in the corner of a busy parking lot shared by not only Wal Mart, but the DMV too. I enjoyed a very good carnitas quesadilla. Small but interesting menu here. Includes a Mexican style fried rice which I might try next time.
Outstanding “Sicilian Pizza” at Sammy’s in Scripps Ranch! A SoCal institution since 1989, Sammy’s was the first restaurant concept in San Diego to introduce the woodfired oven to its guests. Their first location was in La Jolla, but have since expanded throughout California and Nevada.
The Sushi Lounge in Poway is a fantastic restaurant! I really like their new location much better. Very spacious, clean and bright inside. Very good, efficient staff, food comes out fast. I had the pork gyoza, pan fried, and they were quite tasty. Unfortunately, I did not see the Lobster Cali Roll on the menu anymore. Might be due to supply chain issues right now that are effecting so many things. I opted for the Spider Roll instead which was excellent.
Food trucks seem to be all the rage lately; kind of like Birria in SoCal. An absolute standout in this particular culinary arena on wheels happens to be Badas Burgers! One of the food groups I dearly adore is the craft artisan burger. You know, the kind that has to be served with a drop cloth. Well, Badas Burgers food truck does not disappoint. In fact, they set the standard! Unfortunately, like many other small businesses right now, they have had to close temporarily due to staffing shortages. I certainly wish them all the best and look forward to enjoying another one of their fine burgers.
