Lucky star

Vietnamese and Thai delights at City Heights’ 777 Noodle House

By Jenny Montgomery
In City Heights, 777 Noodle House serves dishes from Vietnam and Thailand, and though those countries are quite a ways south from Japan, following your nose through the front doors of the noodle house evokes many of the shared flavors of the region.

Pizza haven

A little Connecticut in North Park

Terra nova

Former Hillcrest farm-to-table fave finds a new home in La Mesa
