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?

Saiko Sushi – Northpark, San Diego

Saiko Sushi – Northpark, San Diego

Dare I say it?  I WILL.  Tonight’s dinner wins for my best meal of 2015 so far.  Saiko Sushi delivered quality on all fronts – excellent ingredients, service, and even the prices are very reasonable for a sushi restaurant of this caliber.

Saiko Sushi is located in Northpark, just off University and West of 30th St.  “Saiko” in Japanese is translated as “best or highest”.  It’s a pretty bold claim, but one that they focus on meticulously every night.  We were invited to check them out as this Northpark location just opened up recently.  …

Wang’s North Park has been around since 2011 and serves up Asian fusion fare. The only time I sampled their food was during a Taste of North Park event a few years back. That was only one item but on this night we had a wide range of dishes to fill our tummies.Wangs Collage

Immediately as you enter the doors you kind of forget where you are. They have a huge space and converted it into a restaurant from an old JC Penny department store. There is a bar, couches, tables, and booth seating throughout.…

Big Front Door – North Park

Like any good, red-blooded American, after Thanksgiving is celebrated I crave a big, hearty turkey sandwich. A sandwich that celebrates all the great ingredients that made the dinner what it was. My hunt lead me to Big Front Door, a specialty sandwich shop in North Park known for their gourmet creations on bread.

Carnitas’ Snack Shack (North Park)

Carnitas 1

Because pork makes everything better.

One of the things that I love most about food is that it’s a fun subject that you can talk about to basically anybody. The conversation usually flows and by the end of it you’ll probably be starving. Fact. But it is even better when you run into foodies like you, with a whole lot to add to your life, and delicious new spices to share.

Following one of those delicious tips, I decided to go check Carnitas’ Snack Shack. (Darren reviewed it a while back) You don’t know it?…
