Best lunch in town, Part III: Do Re Mi Hous

Brilliant banchan and bibimbap at Convoy Korean joint

The old gang would have loved Do Re Mi House (8199 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., Kearny Mesa, Convoy District). For starters, take the banchan, the array of intensely flavorful small plates (think kimchi and similar dishes with daikon, bean sprouts, cucumbers, potatoes, fishcakes) that arrive at your table to accompany a Korean meal.

Bistro West lacks the “wow” factor

Popular Carlsbad spot has its own farm

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.

Liberty Public Market to open next summer

Fills void left by recent collapse of San Diego Public Market effort

Last week, the San Diego Public Market—a Kickstarter-driven effort by Catt White and Dale Steele, best known for their Little Italy Mercato—announced it was officially done, leaving locals to mourn what was supposed to be San Diego’s answer to the great public food markets of North America and Europe. Now comes news of a new public market effort at Liberty Station, immediately adjacent to the Stone Brewing space. ...

Recipe: Lamb & Bison Meatballs with Tomato-Chipotle Sauce

Inspired by Tapas Picasso

In last week’s World Fare, I reviewed Tapas Picasso in Hillcrest. Two of my favorite of Chef Loren Villalobos Alsman’s tapas were the meatballs in spicy chorizo sauce and her superlative albacore mousse paté with chipotle. Following an inspiring telephone conversation with Chef Alsman, I decided to pay tribute to her “authorial cuisine” by combining aspects of these two dishes into a Mexican-tinged tapa of my own. ...

Recipe: Octopus amuse bouche

In CityBeat's Food Issue, I wrote about my experience staging (essentially, interning) at Chad White’s La Justina restaurant in Tijuana. Last week, I used a number of the culinary lessons I learned at La Justina in preparing an amuse bouche for 80 at the Culinary Historians of San Diego’s monthly public meeting at the new San Diego Public Library. The April 19 event featured Chef Deb Schneider of Sol Cocina in Newport Beach and Scottsdale. Schneider's also the author of five cookbooks, including Baja: Cooking on the Edge, the second edition of which just came out. ...

Recipe: Revuelto of Brains & Eggs

Or, what happened to that part of the pig

In CityBeat's Food Issue, I wrote about traveling out to the far reaches of San Diego’s East County and the process of (and lessons learned from) killing, skinning and breaking down a pig. I concluded that:We gave that pig no choice. In that cage, he was already meat. He just didn't know it quite yet. He was born to be meat. Given that reality, we owed it to him to make as little waste of his body as possible, to make use of every last bit of edible meat that we possibly could. Not just the fancy cuts—the celebrated ribs and the other parts with which we're all familiar—but the entire pig, from snout to tail. ...
