DiningDiva Feb 22, 2013 10:39 PM

Lots of single nominations, but 2 items got more than a single mention. So here are your choice for March.

CORNED BEEF

CARNE ASADA BURRITO

Vote for one and remember this will be the dish we seek out in restaurants far and wide, from Oceanside to San Ysidro, from the beach cites to the Imperial County line... for 31 days

        Some places have been known to use soy sauce in the marinade. I think that's as close as you're going to get ;-)

            Hey BC, you've surfaced!! looks like this month will most likely be ...MEAT so, I'd suggest you breakout the carnivore in you and go for it... and vote pattymelt.

                  There is a new place called Sherman's Shack on 25th and....Market? ish? They have soy tacos, so they might be able to serve a CAB-esque soy burrito.

        So the nom thread was actually a primary election?
        A few things got more than one mention, including fried chicken and the patty melt. I would have voted for either of those over CB and CAB. Why restrict? Free election! Free election!

          Since I'll be out of town the last week of March, I nominate Island to take over the nomination/voting responsibilities for April. :-)

          Actually, it probably is a good idea to have someone take over the organization of this topic from time to time.

                    I count 7 to 3 so far in favor of the CAB. Obviously your tactics to sway the masses are working.

                      I agree that we should try to make it more thematic by month. CAB can be for a filler month when we can't think of anything else

                        Yes, CORNED BEEF makes sense for March.

                        April has Easter..some sort of pork comes to mind..

                                    Just go out to Valley Meats in Casa de Oro and get one (or 2 or 3) from them. They're corned in house and are VERY good. Plus the butchers there are nice

                                        At the Linkery, we'll open at 11am and feature:

                                        America's most handmade Reuben, with grass-fed house-cured corned beef, house made swirly rye bread, house cured sauerkraut and house made dressing;

                                  Hey why not report on both as long as the winner is sampled?
