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.”

Sea Rocket Bistro is in a cozy food groove

Fish burgers and beet salads highlight San Diego’s local bounty

By Jenny Montgomery
The sautéed bay scallops are a beautiful pile of tender nubbins of the sea, paired with fatty chunks of bacon and a huge smear of whole-grain mustard.

Sublime Ale House has lots of beer and classic comforts

Friendly San Marcos eatery also does great burgers

By Jenny Montgomery
The warm and bright dining room is open without feeling cavernous. The wooden beams supporting the ceiling lend a gorgeous rustic feel, and the zebra wood tables keep the natural theme going with a modern look.

Lounging with wine and posh eats at Crush

Solana Beach spot offers awesome polenta and tasty budino

By Jenny Montgomery
Even in late fall, one menu special was the panzanella salad filled with explosively juicy tomatoes the color of sunshine and hunks of ciabatta that soaked up the oily dressing without turning into limp sponges of dough.

Cruise over to Coronado for Leroy’s farm-to-table friendliness

Blue-cheese-covered chips and tasty deviled eggs top the offerings

By Jenny Montgomery
Leroy’s Kitchen & Lounge is no edgy addition to the Coronado scene, but it’s cool and friendly and another enthusiastic player in the farm-to-table movement.

Fish 101 will fill you to the gills

Oysters and seafood sandwiches share space in casual yet polished Leucadia eatery

The behind-the-counter chalkboard announces the various catches of the day, usually three options that can be prepared various ways.

Luc’s Bistro is a strip-mall gem

Poway spot serves up classy comfort food

By Jenny Montgomery
I was impressed with both the traditional “comfort food” offerings on the menu, as well as the unique creations; there’s nothing better than creativity in a strip-mall eatery.

Mignon Pho adds hipness to Kearny Mesa

Lemongrass fries and healing soup are menu standouts

By Jenny Montgomery
Though pho is certainly the house specialty, the menu is a playground of things to try. I’m sorry, gentle readers, that in my pregnant condition I couldn’t stomach the thought of trying the fried frogs legs or skewered chicken hearts, but they are there, and based on everything else I ate, I bet they’re tasty.
