Best Comfort Food In North County - SD

My kitty died yesterday and I am sad, really sad and not wanting to eat. Who has got the best comfort type food? Where do you go when you're blue?

  1. Aww, I'm so sorry about your kitty, Enorah. Losing a pet is such a heartbreaking experience. When we had to have our very old dog euthanized a couple of years ago, I know the last thing in the world I felt like doing was eating. I'd cook because it kept me occupied, but had no interest in partaking.

    I don't live in North County, so I can't be much help in recommendations. Personally, I'd find a little place close to the beach, have a nosh, then a walk along the shore. If you're still feeling the same tomorrow, head up to the Beach Break Cafe for breakfast. Breakfast is always comfort food, IMO. And/or get some VG's doughnuts or some goodies from Elizabethan Desserts.

    I'd give you a hug if I could.

    1. re: phee

      Thanks phee. We had to euthanize her as well.

      I thought about VG Donuts and Elizabethan myself.

    2. Sorry to hear about your kittie. My comfort food would be a big gloopy cheezy mess of a pizza from filippis. Something about that pizza makes me feel better and adds 2 inches to my waist. Remember when the time is right there are lots of little kitties out there that need good loving homes.

      1. Awww, I'm sorry for your loss, Enorah. I don't know North County very well, but I second the rec for dessert at Elizabethan Desserts. Maybe some cupcakes and beach time? I find that sugar goes down easy when I don't have an appetite and now's not a time to be worrying about waistlines. I'm not sure if you're a dog person, but there's a dog beach somewhere up north (I'd suggest a cat beach if they existed) and maybe having a dessert picnic near some furry friends might lift your spirits? It might be too soon, of course, but it might bring a smile if you're comfortable with it.

        Add me on the hug list! I have a pooch, so I understand how bereft the house feels without that constant presence.

        1. Sorry to hear about your cat. We've had to euthanize several over the years as they all got old and their medical problems caught up with them.

          Comfort food--any variant of Asian noodle soups. Pho, udon, soba. I still haven't been and need to go, but I think Yu Me Ya has udon. Or jook. But I can't think of anywhere that makes good jook except at our house.

          1. Hi Enorah, I am sorry about your kitty. I know how you feel though needing something xtra good to help you feel like enjoying something again. It depends what u feel like, right off the bat I would say Enzo's BBQ in Oceanside. Everything there is awesome, sweet poetatoe fries, corn bread hush puppies, bbq brisket(*), ribs and Enzo is so nice. If you are in the mood for a burger or french dip the Chili Coast in Vista is a must, don't forget the cajun fries. Chinese would be my fav Peking Wok in bonsall, pork w/ string beans, two flavor shrimp, crispy duck, egg flour soup and have to have the paper wraped chicken. Pizza depends I love Da Gorgio (their cheese is the best) and Giant NY pizza in Vista( be careful there a new one with a similar name in vista, not as good). If u are by the coast there is a place that has the best corn dogs and clam strips but i can't think of what it is called it is the last building before there is no more buildings betweeen the water and coast highway going south in carlsbad. I hope you feel better.
