Lunch in Escondido or San Marcos area
looking for a lunch spot in Escondido or San Marcos. we are visiting some breweries in that area and need a nice spot for lunch.
any type food okay
price range up to $20 per person (for food )
im thinking seafood or taco/mexican is the best bet in this area?
Others could probably help you on Mexican in that area, particularly kare_raisu, but I can confidently suggest Pho Saigon in Escondido.
They have a broad menu similar to Pho Hoa Cali, (Pho, Com Tam, Bun, etc.), though I have only tried their Pho and it is both consistent and one of the best I've had in the county. For sure they do have the best noodles - the texture they achieve is exquisite, and I have been told on at least 2 separate occasions by their owner that they are actually made on the premises.
I have to disagree about Stone, I found the food there very disappointing; it seems like they are selling it on the sourcing of the ingredients alone without any attention to cooking technique. The prices are quite high too. Probably the worst lamb shank I've ever had.
Go for beers and you still get to enjoy the beautiful setting, but pass on the food IMHO.
