San Diego Restaurants
Looking for a place to go out, well San Diego seems to be a sea of Carl’s Jr’s and King’s Table, Costco hot dogs and other fast food places. Moreover, like LA, the traffic is so bad, you can’t just go out, you’ve got to plan. Besices the San Diego local newspaper called the “San Diego Reader”:http://sdreader.com and “San Diego Restaurants”:http://sandiegorestaurants.com seems like a good storted list of places to go. I particularly like their Top 20 list that shows where folks are really going.
What this and every big city site needs desparately is a Google Maps mashup. “Judy’s Book”:http://judysbook.com really did get this right. For big cities, traffic is so bad and street addresses are so meanlingless, you need some way to visually see where things are. So although you can get an “Inland”:http://www.sdreader.com/php/rrglist.php?area=05 restaurant review, there isn’t a map to tell you where things are. Good reviews though.
Some good tips for the North County Inland area:
* 150 Grand Cafe, Escondido. American-Mediterranean with a touch of Asian. Wow, I don’tknow what to make of that. The review is old though from 2003. (That’s the other problme with reviews)
* Abbey’s Real Texas BBQ, Miramar. OK, it ain’t a date place, but it sounds great!
* Ashoka the Great. Mira Mesa. Great Indian food and cheap too.
* Bamboo Hut, Mira Mesa. This is a Hawaiian neighborhood place stuck in a minimall.
* Bernard’O Restaurant. In Rancho Bernardo, this is a French place that is close and a good date place.
* Bistro 221, Escondido, compfortable with bumbo shrip and the like. Sounds like fun.
* Bolsa Vietnamese, Mira Mesa. It’s Viet fusion and sounds like a fun inexpensive place.
* Cabana Cove. Ok so its ina casino, what the heck, its not bad apparently
* Casa Reveles Mexican and Seafood Restaurant, Escondido. Mexican Italian food, got to go for that!
* Galeon, Escondido, Mexican seafood. We’ve been tehre and it is fun.
* Hacienda de Vega. Mexican restaurant in a farm house. We’ve been there. Not bad.
* Hernandex’ Hida-Away. They say they invented the magarita there, in any case, supposed to be fun.
* Hunan. Heck, a good spicy restaurant in Rancho Berna
