Adios, San Diego

Mine is a Midwestern Appetite now

By Marie Tran-McCaslin
By the time you read this, I will be settling into my new hometown of Omaha, Neb. After 14 years in San Diego as a student and then a chemist, I'm pursuing something new: medical school.

Meet Stone Brewing’s latest

Liberty Station might be a step up from Escondido

By Marie Tran-McCaslin
In my experience, the food at Stone’s Escondido bistro can be inconsistent, and I found it an afterthought to the beer. Liberty Station, however, has been more consistent for me.

The daily-made flour tortillas at Burros El Tocayo are worth the trip alone

By Kristin Díaz de Sandi
Twenty-three years ago, a street-food cart with the name "Burros El Tocayo" painted on the side began serving up massive carne asada burritos to locals in Tijuana.

J&T Thai Street Food does chicken and rice right

Linda Vista restaurant serves it up with well-known Thai dishes.

By Marie Tran-McCaslin
I spoke of my envy of current collegiate food options when I wrote a few months ago about the Secret Cookie Service. Apparently, there's more to envy with J&T Thai Street Food (5259 Linda Vista Road) right outside the University of San Diego campus.

Downtown’s Donut Bar reimagines the donut

They’re a little pricier, but totally worth it

By Marie Tran-McCaslin
Ah, the doughnut (or donut, if you will). So humble, but so many possible permutations. Every few years, it seems the doughnut undergoes another renaissance.

Soda & Swine serves small bites for the indecisive

Try a little of everything on a menu of comfort food and sweet drinks at new North Park spot

By Marie Tran-McCaslin
I’m one of those people who can’t decide what they want for dinner. Soda & Swine (2943 Adams Ave. in North Park) is very kind to the indecisive, with small dishes and a flexible menu that facilitates mixing and matching.

The Blind Burro mixes it up

East Village restaurant hits all the right notes with tasty fusion dishes

By Marie Tran-McCaslin
Two bars, a bustling crowd and libations galore usually mean that I'm meeting friends and drinking away life's worries. The food's just there to soak up the alcohol, meaning I don't give much thought to it.
