Bo’s Seafood is fresh and honest

Check out the best fish and chips outside of England

Hello to Santee’s Via Moto

Standouts include house-made mozzarella and a well-balanced panini

By Jenny Montgomery
I was pleased to discover the cavernous confines of Via Moto in Santee. The sprawl of Mission Gorge Road may not be the hippest of locales, but if you’re looking for something tasty that starts with the letter “p,” be it pizza, panini or pasta, this is the place in East County.

Go for the Oxtail Jam; stay for the confusing bathrooms

Pollos Maria elevates the humble taco shop

This Oceanside joint sits in that in-between spot between greasy cuchara and classy sit-down restaurant

By Jenny Montgomery
Pollos Maria in Oceanside is trying to be more than just a place serving up greasy, overdone Mexican favorites. Its specialty is broiled chicken, and the folks there have kindly installed a large, plate-glass window looking onto the grill, through which you can watch the master broiler (my term).

Peruvian cuisine in Del Mar a secret no more

Rich and evocative flavors abound in a warm, intimate atmosphere

By Jenny Montgomery
Husband and wife team Bratzo and Daniella Basagoitia have clearly poured their hearts and creativity into their restaurant, and the menu has all sorts of fun treasures to mine.

Korean bites and delights at Convoy’s Friend’s House

Sweet, savory, and spicy entertain your palate

By Jenny Montgomery
My new favorite thing to eat (and say) is Bul Gogi Dup Bap, a relatively common yet utterly delicious dish of sirloin marinated in a sauce—possibly angel tears—that’s both rich and savory but with an overall impression of satisfying sweetness.

Urban Grind makes a comeback

Despite some rough edges, new ownership shows promise

By Jenny Montgomery
Though there are still bumps and kinks to work out, it appears to me that the new team is busting its hump to turn Urban Grind back into an open gathering place with quality products and friendly employees.

Cage-free, grass-fed eats at Hillcrest’s The Range

Meats are juicy, but could use a bit of help in the seasoning department

By Jenny Montgomery
The Range shares a corner with The Ruby Room nightclub and has a bright, shiny disposition. There’s plenty of seating upstairs, downstairs and along the bar, as well as in a more private—and, ironically, caged-looking—area called “The Chicken Coop.”
