Thai Time

What time is it? It’s Thai Time! Excellent dinner tonight. Sampled one of their fried rice dishes. They have about 6 styles to choose from – I ordered the Spicy Fried Rice. It’s made with stir fried rice, egg, garlic, basil, bell pepper, onion and chili. It’s prepared with your choice of meat/combo/vegetarian. I chose “combo”…

Oaks Grille

Lunch at The Par Lounge today… Probably one of the most beautifully constructed Cobb Salads I’ve ever had… From the Oaks Grille kitchen. I think I’ve only eaten about 5 or 6 Cobb Salads in my lifetime, but this is still top shelf. Perfect with the balsamic vinaigrette. Review by Dan Edwards First published at…

Pepe's Tacos

Recently for breakfast I had the pleasure of trying Pepe’s Tacos for the first time. Tucked just inside Pepe’s Produce, this place is the real deal! I ordered two tacos al pastor. Would you believe these are only $1.25 each?? They were excellent! Exceeded my expectations. You basically get the meat on torts and dress…

Boll Weevil Ramona

Still one of my favorite burgers up the hill.  The blue cheese / bacon at the Weev!  Their fries are fairly blah and institutional so I usually get the hot, crunchy onion rings.

Oaks Grille

This week we went to the Oaks Grille/Par Lounge for our burger. We’ve actually been eating these burgers here for years and they have always been consistently good. Their burger menu is fairly small and simple, but highly customizable. Don’t be afraid to get creative and ask for it to be made how you like…

El Taco Loco Shop

More hole-in-the-wall tacos this week! This time at El Taco Loco inside Ramona Market.  Three adobada tacos for $4.49. The meat was not very lean, chunks of fat throughout. Great flavor and fresh taste otherwise. Chips on the plate were a nice touch. Menu here is pretty expansive, including burritos, tacos, tortas, quesadillas, etc. Even…

SDCEA Trail System

One of the greatest features of the good life in the San Diego Country Estates is the vast network of horse and hiking trails for use by residents.  Just found this great map of the SDCE trail system produced by the San Diego Country Estates Association (SDCEA) for their website, located at www.sdcea.net.
