What is the best damn thing you've eaten in SD?
Couple of Gobernator tacos from the Mariscos German Food Truck
Patty Melt at Studio Diner
Mussel Bisque en croute at Dobson's
Steamers, chowder and a cold Anchor at the Oyster Bar at the Fish Market Downtown
Chile Relleno at Fidel's Del Mar
Cobb sandwich at Con Pane
Scallop sandwich at Point Loma Seafoods
Anything at Cafe Chloe
Carne Asada Burrito, Super Sergios.
A turkey, bacon and avocado sandwich from some grocery store, brought to me by my mother-in-law about an hour after the arrival of our son to the world. I was damn hungry, had to endure listening to all that labor- complaining and pushing and carrying on. Yeesh. I was tired.
All right, I'll play.
Lamb Burger -- Mille Fleurs
Fish Taco with day-glo house margarita -- The Brigantine
Pork Burrito -- Los Cuatros Milpas
Crab Sandwich -- Point Loma Seafoods
Truffle popcorn with My Father's pizza -- Blue Ribbon Pizza
The King Crab Legs with loaded baked potato -- Red Tracton's
As an aside, can someone please explain to me the appeal of a Gobernador Taco. Shrimp, onions and bell peppers, all smoothed in cheese?!. It's a culinary food crime on so many levels. And yes, I have eaten a Gobernador taco at Mariscos German. There. I'm done ranting.
Does Tijuana count? Mision 19's Risotto with Huitlacoche, wild mushrooms and heirloom beans.
Gone but not forgotten from Paul McCabe:
English pea agnolotti with stinging nettles, lobster, orange essence and baby heirloom tomatoes.
Seared halibut in smoked pork broth with crispy chicharones.
Smoked pork ribs (no mop, no sauce) from a little pop-up joint near Mission Hills/Hillcrest.
LOVED MISION 19 IN TJ!
Went there for a 5-course tasting menu from my birthday in January. Chef came out to say hello when they brought a gratis first course. Best pulpo ever. A couple of us said that it was the best meal of our lives (thus far). Compare $100.00 p.p to what that would cost from French Laundry!!! And yeah -- they're comparable.
