          I've been trying to shed a few extra lb's. Not easy to do when stuffing CABs.

          Not snubbing Addison, either. But not one of my regular lunch spots.

            ' I've been trying to shed a few extra lb's'. None of the places you listed will help with your endeavor. You may need to head out to East County in order to fast.

            I'm off to OB Noodle House to get a fix on my craving for today.

      1. Pho Hoa Linda Vista (pho tai)
        Bale (bun ga nuong)
        Koon Thai (chicken pra ram)
        Mien Trung (bun bo hue)
        Pieology on Balboa
        Luce (Luce burger)
        LW's BBQ (beef brisket sandwich)
        Maritza's (carnitas burrito - Wednesdays)

        These are the ones I end up chowing at most frequently, partly because they're close by. I have a whole long list of other places I love to go to, but I don't get to them as frequently as I do these. I get to those others when I have a specific food mood and try to get to one or two a week. The rest of the time (true confession) I grab grub at one of these.

        1. Ohhhh, now you're talking! Saturday lunch is our "date night". Long and leisurely.

            Great list, and most are on my "long list" as well, except for Candelas and Patio at Morada, two places I've never even heard of until now (second true confession of the day).
