Excellent Wisconsin Fried Cheese Curds at YH in Mission Valley! Also had a very tasty sammich & salad lunch special. Always an impressive selection of fine draft beers here.
I expected the Duke of Deep-Fat-Fried would not disappoint when it comes to legit fish & chips and I was right! They were outstanding at Chicken Charlie’s Table in Rancho Bernardo. Yes, there are fries under all that fish LOL.
I’ve been eating calamari at The Par Lounge for years. I’ve ridden the roller coaster of varying qualities they’ve put out. Sometimes excellent, sometimes it seemed like a bowling alley snack bar. The new menu at Par/OG features the outstanding appetizer “S&P Calamari”. By far, their best yet! $14 ($2 off during happy hour).
Super delicious and artfully presented, I easily and happily ate the whole thing. It’s adorned with beautifully blistered shishito peppers, roasted peanuts, fresh lime, etc. Includes sides of a tasty, sweet chili sauce and a savory peanut sauce. A very nice Asian inspired spin on calamari that’s not over the top.
