Outstanding spicy shrimp roll and excellent crispy gyoza at Love Boat Susie!
Outstanding brunch recently at The Oaks Grille. I ordered the Biscuits & Gravy Breakfast for $9.95. Includes two eggs cooked “your way” and two pieces of bacon or sausage. Being that it was weekend brunch, it also included two complimentary glasses of champagne!
The dish consisted of two biscuits cut into four halves. Biscuits were on the softer side with no discernible crispy edges. Gravy was thick, flavorful and hearty with a very conservative amount of sausage nodules. It seemed that if this gravy had sat around too long, it could be used as some sort of binding agent in various construction trades. Big chubby sausage links were very tasty. And my scrambled eggs were cooked perfectly! Not all overdone, brown and tough.
Not the best B&G I’ve had in town, but it was respectable. Next time I’ll probably try the country fried steak.
Outstanding crab cake appetizer at Brigantine in Poway! I’ve had the best in Maryland and other places back east. This one wasn’t quite up to those standards, but still remarkable for a SoCal crab cake.
Probably one of the most pathetic looking sandwiches I’ve had from Wendy’s. The so-called Crispy Chicken BLT may have looked like a sad sack, but it was actually very tasty. This was kind of a surprise because I usually get expertly crafted, nice looking sandwiches and burgers from Wendy. And of course you can never go wrong with an order of Baconator Fries!
Best chicken tender appetizer in town is at The Par Lounge, that I can tell you! Likely frozen and off the Sysco truck, it’s still a high quality, fried chicken tender. Coupled with their hot, crispy fries, it’s a meal in itself. Pairs perfectly with ranch dressing, BBQ sauce and a draft IPA.
Grandstand Pizza makes an outstanding pie! Occasionally though they skimp on the toppings, but the pizzas are still really good! They clearly use really high quality ingredients and employ good cooking techniques. The crust here is definitely the star. I really appreciate how you can actually taste the cheese!
