Skip the pastries at Dos Palmas Panadería & Grill

Go right for the good Mexican grub

By Jenny Montgomery
Stop trying to convince me that I like Mexican pastries. I accept that I’m likely outnumbered when it comes to this county’s passion for panaderías, but the appeal is lost on me.

Philly Frank’s knocks you out

Cheese steaks and other Rocky-approved treats await in San Marcos

By Jenny Montgomery
I empathize with those who just can’t shake that touch of former-hometown homesickness, especially when it comes to food. Philly natives? There’s a place in San Marcos just for you.

Bernard Guillas on ’60s French cuisine

Marine Room chef talks about the legacy of Julia, Escoffier and seasonal eating

By Jenny Montgomery
Mad Men fans may still have the 1960s ditty “Zou Bisou Bisou” running through their heads. But it wasn’t just bits of frothy French music that captivated America in the 1960s.

Still searching for a decent breakfast

Longboarder Café has mediocre scrambles, tasty machaca

By Jenny Montgomery

This is no original or profound thought, but life is all about managing expectations. It’s also about realizing that, for some reason, most people have really low standards when it comes to breakfast restaurants. “Beware overhyped eggs” might be the next phrase I embroider on a pillow for my future Etsy shop. But I’ll get to breakfast shortly.

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.
