So, this is a way for me to call out great food or places that either, I have covered at length or it was my day off. By the way, my days off look a lot like my days on, they still involve food and friends.
Let’s get started..
Hummer Toast—hummus, cranberry, pecans & white iced tea.
Mario and Ton Ton are two of my favorites and they bring passion to every dish and every coffee.
The “Highway To Hell” Chicken Sandwich ~ Grilled chicken breast tossed in wing sauce, topped with melted pepper jack cheese, crispy fried onions and jalapeño slices, lettuce, tomato, and PCH sauce, served on grilled sourdough slices.
Not the best pic, but I was getting too much attention. Look I’m cute, but that not cute:). I think I was made. These guys delivered elevated bar food and great local beer selection.
Bagby’s anniversary tacos and margaritas.
Full Disclosure..never been a fan of Bagby’s. The food is passable. This day they shined, both the food and service were spot on. Plus for a brewery they make a great margarita.
Ajito, a small and hard to find Japanese bento box and sushi place, run by a husband and wife team who were disciples of Kaz from Kaito Sushi. It is located next to fully loaded juicery in Encinitas off the 101.
Salmon bento box and Japanese sausage. Nice little lunch.
Marinated beef omelet.
One of Chef Marc’s weekly specials @ Petite Madeline.
Dish of the month (really month and a half) …is a tie!
Scallop Nagiri ~ red jalapeno, sesame seeds, mystery sauce.
Chef Alex ~ Wrench and Rodent
Pan Seared Opah ~ grains, organic micro greens (day off was not taking notes)
