Can you believe that today is the first day of fall? Time sure flies. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done one of these “Misc Pics Post”, so here we go for the September edition – a collection of what I’ve been eating lately…
The poke craze hit San Diego – hard. I’ve visited several of the poke restaurants (poke stops?) around town, including Poke Go, San Diego Poke Company, Poki One N Half, Poke UTC, and Poke Subarashi, and found Pokirrito to be my favorite. Though the prices are a bit higher, I like their fish and the variety of sauces that they offer. Pictured above is one of my go-to orders, the Kauai Sands sushi burrito, which features salmon and tuna. I’ve heard good things about the yakiniku beef burrito and will be trying that on my next visit!

I’ve been to the Del Mar location of Davanti Enoteca before and checked out the Little Italy location recently. The menu is largely the same, but I tried some different items. In the first picture, Mascarpone Polenta with Ragu of the Day, which was a rich and flavorful lamb ragu. The creamy polenta was perfectly cooked and paired so well with the ragu – I might need to order this every time I visit from now on. In the second picture, Paccheri con Salsiccia e Pomodori al Forno, giant rigatoni with sausage, oven-roasted tomatoes, parmesan, and onions. While I didn’t think this one was as special as the polenta, it was still quite delicious. All in all, another lovely visit to Davanti Enoteca. I’ve still yet to try the Davanti Burger – it’s hard to bring myself to order a burger at an Italian restaurant, but since so many have recommended it, one of these days I’ll try it.

I’ve been eating a lot of Korean food lately. Something about the bold and spicy flavors of soondubu or the rich and comforting kalbitang have really appealed to me these days, and so I’ve been frequenting Friend’s House quite a bit. Pictured above is the Budae Jungol, spicy hot pot with mixed meats – and we added an extra ramen noodle. I believe the soup is a beef broth base with spicy soybean paste, and the ingredients include quite a generous amount of tofu, pork, hot dogs, spam, mushrooms, rice cake, kimchi, and green onions. I love this hearty hot pot, and the portion size is enough for a quite a few meals. I’m really looking forward to cooler weather – you bet I’ll be ordering this even more often.

And now, a couple of things that I’ve made in the past few months:…
