Labor inducing meal? (SD)

A coworker of my husband told him there is a meal in San Diego that is known for inducing labor. He could not remember what or where it is. Anyone know if this is true? I am aware of other labor inducing meals throughout the country but does one exist in SD? I would be eternally grateful if anyone can help, I have tried everything, I'm way overdue, and very much ready to pop!

    All of the best to you!

    1. Friends have used a very spicy carne asada burrito, spicy Chinese Food or pineapple or mango..
      Best to you!

      1. IIRC, I read something about the labor inducing meal a few years ago in the U/T. I want to say the restaurant was in San Marcos, but I'm not entirely sure. The U/T archives aren't very user friendly, and I think difficult to use, but you might try searching them to see if the article is still available.

        1. I'd go with a deep dish pie from Lefty's pizza, extra sprinkle of red pepper chili flakes.


          1. Thanks, I will try the U/T and Lefty's. I have been eating tons of spicy food. I read that green papaya can cause contractions so I have been eating the thai papaya salad at Sab-e-lee(sp?) at #8 spicy. It's so good but no luck so far. I have also tried mexican, chinese and pineapple. Thanks for the help and well wishes.
