Craving for Pambazo

Hi,

Ever since La Cocina de Maria closed, I havent been able to satisfy my craving for Pambazos.

Any suggestions for other places in the San Diego area.

Thanks PambazoHound.

          I'm pretty sure I had one at Ranas and I'd remember if it was horrible so i'm guessing it was halfway decent.

          I havent been there in a while tho so I'm not sure if its still all that and a bag of chips. I remember liking the mole which is not on the menu so you gotta ask for that one.

          If only they'd ditch the florescent lights.

              Please report back if you get to Ranas. Never had a pambazo and I'm intrigued.

                Pambazos are awesome!

                Its street food, like a "torta" with potato, but not a torta, hard to describe. The best one i've had in California is in Redwood City (SF bay area) at Casita Chilanga. Its been a while since i've been there so dont hold me to it but it was realy good last time.
