Excellent crispy gyoza at RB Sushi!
The ubiquitous sammich for me that exemplifies Jersey Mike’s has to be their #13 Original Italian! This is a legit Jersey-style Italian sub, made with provolone cheese, ham, prosciuttini, cappacuolo, salami and pepperoni. Just outstanding, especially when ordered Mike’s way.
Sometimes I like to order the boneless ribs & chicken at Phil’s BBQ. That and a double helping of the best mac salad in SoCal. The great thing is you can eat everything with a fork! Really helpful on those days I don’t feel like taking a shower after eating at Phil’s.
One of the best places for lunch specials in Rancho Bernardo is Charm Thai Kitchen. And not just my favorite for Thai food, but an all around great restaurant. It also helps that they’re in a shopping center with one of the least jacked up parking lots in RB during the lunch rush. My favorite thing to order at CTK is the Pad Thai. They always make it with the perfect balance of sweet, sour and spicy!
Outstanding garlic & pepper beef lunch special at Pailin Thai Cafe! It’s the perfect alternative when you want something other than their amazing Pad Thai or curry dishes. The beef is very tender, flavorful and just the right amount.
Outstanding BBQ chicken & ribs at Phil’s BBQ! I always order them sauce on the side, or “SOS” as they say at Phil’s. Doing so keeps me from having to take two showers when I get home. You can also find the absolute best mac salad in SoCal here! I could just eat a big ol’ plate of that!
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!
