Bistro West lacks the “wow” factor

Popular Carlsbad spot has its own farm

By Jenny Montgomery
Occasionally, a restaurant leaves me in a muddle. And not that pleasant muddle that comes from just a bit too much food and the perfect amount of fuzziness from a few cocktails.

When Pigs Fly BBQ serves up meat in a gas station

Vista upstart is a delicious no-brainer

By Jenny Montgomery
Tucked inside a shiny Chevron on a busy suburban corner of Vista is When Pigs Fly BBQ (1211 E. Vista Way), and its owners hope you'll back away from the Slim Jims and tuck into some brisket.

Hacienda de Vega has old California style, great food

Escondido fan favorite serves up killer mole fries

By Jenny Montgomery
Hacienda de Vega is one of those San Diego County charmers that feel like they've been there forever. The restaurant (2608 S. Escondido Blvd. in Escondido) has been open for more than a decade, but the hacienda itself dates to the 1930s.

Hello Betty charms with killer views and fresh eats

Go for the less-traditional at this Oceanside fish house

By Jenny Montgomery
The rooftop bar at Hello Betty Fish House in Oceanside is my new favorite place to gaze at the horizon and pretend that I totally saw the green flash—not to mention you’re perched right over Kelly McGillis’ house in Top Gun, so get ready to have your breath taken away.

Pillbox Tavern feels casual yet polished

Solana Beach hangout excels at wings and American classics

By Jenny Montgomery
I love the beach as much as the next SoCal native, and I yearn for the day I can move just a little closer to the sand. But if I hear “Margaritaville” one more time, I’m going to stick my own head in a blender to see what it will render.

Sustainable seafood is a passion for this Carlsbad star

By Jenny Montgomery
Fear not, squeamish eaters. This splashy new Carlsbad restaurant (2978 Carlsbad Blvd.) has an incredibly fun menu to explore, with fresh offerings that manage to be comforting as well as creative.

Local Tap House is the hangout Oceanside needs

Creative gastropub food makes it more than your average bar

By Jenny Montgomery
“Revitalization” might not be the right word when talking about the various interesting eateries popping up around Oceanside, but there’s a brash energy to our county’s northernmost beach town that’s unlike its crunchier neighbors to the south.

Yoshino Japanese Deli serves up fresh, bright rolls and bowls

Fish so good, you should get to this Carlsbad shop early

By Jenny Montgomery
I’m finally coming clean with my ineptitude after a visit to Yoshino Japanese Deli in Carlsbad, where the fishy delights are so good, I can’t be expected to eat as slowly as I’d have to with chopsticks in hand.

Hungry Bear banishes bland sandwiches

Steak subs should lure you to this Escondido shop

By Jenny Montgomery
Then along comes the plentiful menu at Escondido’s Hungry Bear Sub Shop (302 W. El Norte Pkwy.) to smack me upside the head and tell me that I do love a good grinder, especially one that’s done as brilliantly as this North County star does them.
