I’ve been frequenting the Otay Ranch Farmers Market at the mall recently on Tuesdays.  We love getting the Pad-see-Ew from the Thai food vendor and lumpia from Gabina’s (5 for $2).

Which Farmer’s Market is your favorite?  Which vendors do you frequent?

Tortas Ahogadas (Chula Vista)

Tortas Ahogadas (Chula Vista)

IMG_6610

I was bored one day and caught an old episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern on tv. It happened to be the San Diego episode which I had seen before, but I couldn’t remember all the places he visited. Funny thing is the show contacted us back then asking if we knew of any bizarre food destinations in San Diego. We weren’t of much use to them and couldn’t think of anything truly bizarre that we frequented in SD. One of the places he made his way down to try was Tortas Ahogadas, a food truck located in a Toys R Us parking lot off of the 5 freeway in Chula Vista.…

Goody’s Sushi

Goody’s Sushi

I must admit, living further South these days makes it a bit more challenging to find great San Diego food without driving 20+ minutes.  Thankfully, we just found Goody’s Sushi and Grill and it’s not too far away in National City.

Goody’s is located in a simple strip mall and the inside is simple and quaint.  I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, but once food started arriving I got more and more excited.

We started off with the garlic edamame.  It was incredibly tasty and the carmelized garlic really made the flavors pop.  …

Tacos Revolucion – San Diego, San Ysidro

Tacos Revolucion – San Diego, San Ysidro

20140716_113748

Eating authentic street tacos definitely brings back some memories.  Back in college, we would cross the border into TJ on a late Thursday night, or venture our way down to Rosarito Beach for a Spring Break weekend.  While some of my friends will probably remember the hard hitting beats at the clubs, I simply remember searching out the best and most authentic foods I could find… mostly on the street.  Adobada tacos quickly became a favorite for Jorgina and me.  If you’ve never had them, it’s a must try!   (Think marinated pork meat on a roasting spit.…

TJ Oyster Bar (Re-visit) – San Diego

TJ Oyster Bar (Re-visit) – San Diego

So my sister and brother-in-law came to visit us over the Memorial Day weekend.  First stop was TJ Oyster Bar.  They loved it!

Anyhow, this will be a shorter post than usual, but I finally had a regular camera rather than my phone cam.  So, hopefully these pics will be a bit better.

Here are their famous 99 cents fish tacos.

The batter is seasoned perfectly.  However, you have to eat it here.  If you take it to go, it immediately gets soggy and the magic is lost.

Again the combination of the fish, cabbage, tomatoes, and cream sauce make this one of my favorite things to eat in ALL of San Diego.…
