Lunch at 43,000 feet

More in-flight dining. This time a remarkably good (and huge) Chicken Caesar salad. Also an exquisite crab & corn chowder. Simply outstanding.

Joe’s Crab Shack

Excellent voodoo chicken appetizer at Joe’s Crab Shack in Oceanside!

Pailin Thai Cafe

Outstanding Panang curry lunch special at Pailin Thai Cafe in Rancho Bernardo! Somewhat on the thick side but still very tasty.

Pei Wei Asian Diner

I don’t think it’s on their menu anymore, but this Thai curry dish was very tasty!

Phil’s BBQ

Outstanding quarter chicken dinner plate at Phil’s BBQ in Rancho Bernardo! My favorite thing on this plate has to be that mac salad. Best I’ve had in SoCal!

BBQ Chicken

Outstanding homemade BBQ chicken legs from my trusty Weber kettle! Paired perfectly with some Sweet Baby Ray’s and a nice, cold Modelo Especial.

Marinade on Main

Outstanding dinner at Marinade on Main recently! Probably one of the finest, most satisfying and skillfully constructed dishes I’ve had in Ramona. “Marinades Alfredo Pasta”, $17. Prepared with their housemade cream sauce, topped with fried chicken and a prosciutto/arugula salad. You can sub shrimp for $4 more.

They used a linguine pasta that was cooked to a perfect al dente. Cream sauce was excellent. If you like garlic, you’ll love their version. Not overly salty or overly heavy and rich, it was just right. Chicken was a boneless breast, perfectly crispy and expertly fried. The coating unfortunately did not remain very well adhered. The large breast became somewhat unwieldly on the plate, I might try the shrimp version next time.

The prosciutto and arugula adornment totally elevated this dish to the next level. Highly recommended.

Rubio’s

Outstanding Baja Grill chicken burrito at Rubio’s! Rather small, but super tasty.

Chili’s Grill & Bar

The new loaded boneless wings at Chili’s are outstanding! They are smothered in a white queso, 3-cheese blend, applewood smoked bacon & chopped green onions. Served with a side of house made ranch dressing. I usually prefer my chicken on a bone but these were outrageous good! Best part was not feeling like I had to take a shower after eating it!
