ISO Montgomery Field Neighbourhood Gem in SD

I did a search for eateries near Montgomery Field and came up with 94th Aero Squadron. Is there anything else east of the 805, west of the 15, and north of the 8 that would be considered a neighborhood gem or chowish?

There's a handful of us getting together this weekend; a time certain has not yet been determined. Price points also not yet determined; so anything goes as long as we're constrained (not strictly) by the area.

I'm hoping that we're getting together for lunch so that I can hit Market in Del Mar or Kaito in Encinitas (yes, I did some research here) on the way back up to OC. Thank you!

EDIT: I've done dim sum on Convoy hitting the major 3 (China Max, Jasmine & Emerald), but it won't be in the cards for this visit. Otherwise, we're open to ethnic restaurants.

  1. Pampas Argentine Grill is right by Montgomery Field, and we've always had good meals there. Check it out:

    1. Pampas by all means, however, if you're looking for cheaper and more casual, Casa Machado in the Montgomery Field complex is a reasonably decent and accomodating restaurant. Basic Mex food, good Margaritas and a full, lively bar along with a front seat view of the landing strip.

      1. phee & deckape, thank you. Since we're meeting @ lunch, Pampas wouldn't work. I love the Casa Machado idea; it looks like a good, cheap Sunday brunch. I'll see what the group says! =)

        1. If the other options don't pan out, Convoy is not that far away from Montgomery Field.
