Pei Wei Asian Diner 

Outstanding fried rice bowls at Pei Wei!  Probably my favorite thing to order here, especially with beef.  Even the small size is a generous amount of food.  I always feel like laying down afterwards. 

Pailin Thai Cafe 

There are about four places to get Thai food in Rancho Bernardo; a north San Diego hamlet, known for geezers and tech companies.  Pailin consistently has the best Pad Thai, that I can tell you!

Homemade Ramen 

Recently made a kicked up homemade ramen thing that turned out pretty tasty!  Just start with one of those cheap grocery store ramen packs and add some cut up green onions, sprouts, sriracha, lime, etc. 

Pei Wei Asian Diner

Outstanding Mongolian Beef at Pei Wei!  Almost as good as their big brother, PF Chang.

This Korean spicy bowl thing with steak at Pei Wei was remarkably good!!

Charm Thai Kitchen

Outstanding cashew nut chicken lunch special at Charm Thai Kitchen in Rancho Bernardo!

Pei Wei Asian Diner

My favorite dish at Pei Wei are their outstanding fried rice bowls!  I could eat these everyday.  Particularly with the beef.  Definitely on par with their big brother, PF Chang.  Also shown here are their amazing Crab Wontons.  Crispy handcrafted dumplings filled with crab, cream cheese, red bell peppers and scallions served on a bed of tasty sweet chile sauce. 

Charm Thai Kitchen

Outstanding Pad Thai lunch special at CTK!  I just wish they put the salad on a separate plate.  It unfortunately tends to sympathetically absorb warmth from the hot food. 

Iron Wok

Outstanding teriyaki beef bowl at Iron Wok!

Thai Time

I’ve had quite a bit of Pad Thai around SoCal, but our own Ramona Thai Time is probably the best I’ve had. By far the best presentation too.If you haven’t tried Pad Thai, it’s simply stir fried rice noodles with egg, green onion, bean sprouts and ground peanuts. A traditionally spicy dish, it reminds me of a Chinese Kung Pao in a way, although with noodles. Maybe it’s the peanuts, I don’t know.

At Thai Time you can get it made with a variety of proteins, or vegetarian, ranging from $8.95 to $13.95. This time I got it Combo style, which includes shrimp, chicken, pork and beef for $12.95. It was excellent.

All the folks working there are friendly and bubbly… Always enjoy visiting for a great meal.
